Description

In this autobiographical journey through Freeport, New York on Long Island and eventually New York’s juvenile justice system in the late 1980’s and early 1990’s, Robert Born Goldwire skillfully describes the evolution of hip hop in his neighborhood during its golden years and he also vividly articulates the devasting affects caused by the introduction of crack cocaine into the Long Island streets during the mid 1980's. He also shares personal experiences, when his journey of knowledge of self began, childhood strifes and the unconditional love between a mother and a son. If you lived in this era, you don’t have to be from Freeport to relate to his experiences. The way this story was articulated, you would think it was your own story. The music, how the boys dressed, how the girls dressed, the house parties, the drug epidemic, physical survival in his hood and near death encounters. It’s all so very well laid out in this nostalgic trip down memory lane, with a message.show more
