I met Ivory "Pretty Red" Wilson on the streets of D.C. in 2006. He was carrying a duffle bag full of his book, "A Player's World Manual: Wanna Be a Pimp?" After talking with him for a little over an hour I paid $20 for a copy.

I was going to write a blog about the book, but I don't really want to get into it after reading more about him. Maybe when I'm not feeling as somber as I do now, I'll tell you guys about the book.
