Writers' Cafe / Re: Does anyone here write Urban/Street Lit?

I write an Urban Lit series that's doing well. As for finding out info on "keeping it real". Read and study the genre. Read the classics, Coldest Winter Ever, True to the Game etc. Understand the culture by watching urban films like Belly, Paid in Full, New Jack City and In Too Deep. Understand the voice by listening to trap music and watching shows like Love and Hip Hop.

By doing that research you can understand the voice/trends... I'm no stripper or drug dealer nor do I know any but my books are all rated 4.5 stars :) Good luck.
