Summary
From a career as a ruthless pimp in the '40s and '50s, Iceberg Slim refashioned himself as the first and still the greatest of 'street lit' masters, whose vivid books have made him an icon to such rappers as Ice-T, Jay-Z, and Snoop Dogg and a presiding spirit of 'blaxploitation' culture. You can't understand contemporary black (and even American) culture without reckoning with Iceberg Slim and his many acolytes and imitators
