Raheem Hoyte, or Bounty as he's known to most, is a father as well as the founder and CEO of Street Money Publishing, LLC. Bounty is also an author who hails from the gritty streets of Bed-Stuy, one of Brooklyn, New York's most violent neighborhoods. Unlike your typical author, Bounty's résumé doesn't include a host of literary credentials. However, being dubbed by some as the new literary Voice of the Streets, Bounty's résumé does prove that he is certainly qualified to write about the streets; a place he knows so well. At a young age, Bounty found himself knee deep in the streets. As they say, Practice Makes Perfect. Therefore, it didn't take long for Bounty's street savvy to prevail. But, with street life comes the penitentiary. So it was evident that he would one day see the Pen. However, that day came sooner than he thought it would. At age eleven, Bounty caught his first case. Since then he's been haunted by the Penal Plague. Unfortunately, Bounty's travels went from the juvenile system to the adult state system, before his Penal Journey ultimately landed him in the Federal Pen. In 1993 Bounty was tried and convicted of being an organizer/leader of a racketeering enterprise that expanded across several states. It was the RICO conviction that caused him to receive a double-life sentence becoming the nation's youngest defendant to be convicted of being a leader of such an enterprise. However, as a means to escape the ills of prison life, Bounty sought refuge in writing, penning the type of raw, powerful plots that leave readers eager for more. Bounty writes with the passion and vigor that's been missing in the industry. The realness of his work proves that he writes by drawing from his real-life experiences to deliver the streets on a profound level.Review:
