If there's one thing 17-year-old Maverick Carter knows, it's that a real man takes care of his family. As the son of a former gang legend, Mav does that the only way he knows how: dealing for the King Lords. Until, that is, Maverick finds out he's a father. Suddenly he has a baby who depends on him for everything. It's not so easy to sling dope, finish school, and raise a child. When he's offered the chance to go straight, he takes it, but you can't just walk away from the King Lords. Loyalty, revenge, and responsibility threaten to tear Mav apart, especially after the brutal murder of a loved one. He'll have to figure out for himself what it really means to be a man.
