Wrote as a man with conflictions in choosing to abide by the law, or kneel to the life style of drugs and dirty money. I wanted to show both sides. A positive venue, still has its own journey. Just as life in the streets, the concept is that, you live and die by the sword.” ~Says AMB-Free Style. This is the Pilot to the Series, "Hood Bound" “I’M HOOD BOUND, GET WIT IT OR GET SMACKED!
