Wow. I just finished reading Pepa’s autobiography and it was mind-blowing. I read this 200-page book in 4 sittings. It was hard to put it down the first 3 times, and near the end of the book, she says that she did not include everything about her life in this book. Again, wow!
Pepa is a survivor. She tells her story with candor, comedy, and transparency. The book reads like she is talking to you. Her stories are entertaining and real. From the racing in NYC and Europe and other other wild stunts, to the behind-the-scenes look at S-N-P and other celebrities, to the abusive relationships she had with Treach from Naughty-by-Nature (whom she refers to as Brad) and others, to the 6th sense gift that she has, there is never a dull moment. This book is the basis for a great movie, much better than 50′s or the forthcoming Biggie movie (“Notorious” in January ’09). Everyone in my generation, especially hip hop fans, should read this book.
