A large part of Goines's thirty-nine years were spent being a
successful pimp, thief, operator of corn liquor houses, armed robbery
and small-time dope dealer. He lived the life of the streets and out of
that experience he created Prince, the anti-hero of Black Gangster.
It's the story of the shocking underworld of black organized crime and
the fledgling black "godfather" who goes from teenage ganglord to
powerful Detroit mobster. Like the gangsters of the 1920s, he begins
with bootlegging and branches out into every known crime.
