Iceberg Slim is the name Robert Beck used in the ghetto. He was a pimp and this is his story, told without bitterness and with no pretense at moralising...the smells, the sounds, the fears, the petty triumphs in the world of the pimp.
He was young, ambitious and blessed with a superior I.Q. He lived the Game for twenty-five years of his life, knocking out whores, building up stables, losing himself on scag, proving himself to be the biggest mack in Chicago. It was a life of ups and downs, and to succeed you had to be utterly ruthless. Few survived -Iceberg did.
Nobody but a pimp could tell this story and none ever has...until Iceberg Slim.
This, the first ever U.K. edition of Pimp, includes a specially commissioned introduction by Ice T, the massively successful rapper who took his name from Iceberg Slim.
