Today, Gwenesha sits pretty on the arm of Ricco, South Beach Don, gunrunner, and drug supplier, who keeps her covered in the finest things. Avoiding gang politics, Gwenesha ignores Ricco’s hard rule over the streets — as long as she’s covered in Gucci threads! (STK451370) MATURE THEMES SC, 80pgs, FC SRP: $14.95
