Clockers by Spike Lee( visu )
4 editions published between 1995 and 2017 in English and held by 418 libraries worldwide
A "clocker" is a 24-hour drug dealer, and Strike (Mekhi Phifer) is the hardest-working one on the streets. But for Strike, time is running out. When the local drug kingpin (Delroy Lindo) tips Strike off about an opportunity for advancement, a rival dealer ends up dead, and Strike suddenly finds himself caught between two homicide detectives. One is Mazilli (John Turturro), who's only looking for an easy bust. The other is Rocco (Harvey Keitel), who's looking for something much harder to find - the truth - and when Strike's law-abiding brother confesses to the murder, Rocco vows not to rest until he's sure the real shooter is behind bars. Director Spike Lee, producer Martin Scorsese and writer Richard Price, along with music by Seal, Marc Dorsey, Des'ree and Chaka Khan, deliver a film so riveting, you'll feel it grab you by the collar and toss you into the middle of an urban battlefield, prompting Jeffrey Lyons of Sneak Previews to call it "One of 1995's most powerful films."
BMF : the rise and fall of Big Meech and the Black Mafia Family by Mara Shalhoup( file )
10 editions published in 2010 in English and held by 116 libraries worldwide
"The story of Demtrius "Big Meech" Flenory and his legendary street crew, the Black Mafia Family (BMF), is the tale of a modern-day don who aspired to be something more: a credible name in hip-hop. It is a tale built on the seduction of vast sums of money, a seduction that pulled in hip-hop stars but that also had a darker side. While BMF was able to attract increasingly mainstream stars, its crew members grew notorious for a cult of violence that threatened a host of other celebrities, including the families of pop icon Bobby Brown and Atlanta Mayor Shirley Franklin. BMF's ruthlessness caused them to rise to incredible power, but wanting even more lead to their downfall"--Publisher's description
