Pappy tries to break out of the game before the head of his
crew, Black, gets them all killed. Against his better judgment Pappy agrees to
do one last job, but only because it’s the price of his freedom. He knows Black
can’t be trusted. He knows his “brother” would rather see him dead than let him
walk away. Yet he still agrees to do the job because Black isn’t the only one
who can’t be trusted. Sometimes you have to kill for what you want.
Further developing the stark realism and uncompromising
streetwise narratives of his lyrics, HNIC cements Prodigy’s position
as one of the foremost chroniclers of contemporary urban life. Simultaneously a
fast-paced crime drama and an engrossing, unsentimental moral tale, it peers into the dark heart that
underpins the codes of loyalty and friendship, betrayal and vengeance.
With H.N.I.C., Prodigy inaugurates Infamous
Books, a revolutionary partnership that pairs the Infamous Records brand with
Brooklyn-based independent publisher Akashic Books. Infamous Books’ mission is
to connect readers worldwide to crime fiction and street lit authors both
familiar and new.
