Better U Than Me is a story of fiction that paints a painfully realistic picture of some of the many ups and downs, twists and turns, pros and cons that go along with the street life and all that it entails. As Spice finishes up a six-year bid, he’s befriended and taken under the wing of an old-timer pimp named Jazz. While studying the art of pimpology in the school of hard knocks, Spice receives some information about a possible indiscretion and betrayal by the hands of his kid’s mother and someone that he once considered a close friend. Will Spice’s plans of success in the drug game come true? Or will he find that the emotions of anger and revenge are much more important to him than his success and his freedom when the fast life offers fast women, fast cars, and fast cash? The motto is “Better me than you.” But when what was once sweet turns sour, who will change their tune to Better U Than Me?

About the author (2010)

My name given to me at birth is Samuel Arthur Nevels III. I was born and raised in the urban city streets of Brooklyn, New York. I was raised by two loving parents who were both slaves to alcohol and drugs. As a kid, I often compared my household to the "society's norm," which resulted in me carrying a boulder-sized chip on my shoulder and a mentality that life was unfair. As a late teen, I used that mentality to fuel my dealings in the drug trade and other illegal activities. After several run-ins with the law and prison, I've finally come to see that IF NOTHING CHANGES, THEN NOTHING CHANGES!Better U Than Me is my attempt at making a positive change in my life, by using some of those real-life experiences that I've gone through, that I've seen, and that I've heard about, and making them work of me. I realize that life is what I make it, and I choose now to make it through life as a storyteller.
