In an effort to educate the masses about the economics of entertainment and how it parallels corporate America, Harold â€œNoonieâ€ Ward, a former high-ranking member of the Gangster Disciples, is releasing a book, Gangstanomics: The Hard Core Streets and the Corporate World are the Same,â€ along with a song, â€œMoney In Your Hand,â€ by Kanye West, Trey Songz, Dwele and Twista, that talks about major entertainers who were broke and how they became rich.
The forward was written by 50 Cent along with a quote from Sean Puffy combs who said, â€œPut God First! Get Money! And Donâ€™t Stop.â€
Noonie Ward, who is running for Illinois State Representative of the 29th District in the upcoming Nov. 4, 2014, general election, is giving away the song at his upcoming book signings.
â€œThe book is about the hard core streets and the corporate world how they are one because they cannot exist without the other. The streets lay the foundation for the corporate world, which is a part of the streets. Many people think the streets ire all about drugs but it is not. It is the making of the corporate world.â€
On violence, Ward said, â€œI know how the violence started, and I know how to fix it.â€
