Antebellum

A Novel

A thought-provoking novel about African American culture seen through the eyes of a famous rapper who is transported to the days of slavery.

When big-time rapper Da Nigga is sent back in time, he finds himself a slave forced to live the horrifying life of his ancestors. As slavery challenges the realities of his modern life—his fellow rappers and their lyrics, the music executives and his motives—he must confront the reality of the African American experience.

Da Nigga’s compelling journey from rap superstar to broken slave and back is a hard-hitting, gritty story that will have readers on the edges of their seats and keep them talking long after they put it down.
