The Making and Unmaking of a Gang Leader (The short version)

 A gifted, high-achieving boy turned into a gang leader and operated what the FBI called a “multi-state drug empire.” What is the reverse alchemy that turns a gifted, golden child into a violent criminal and what are the elements that help him transition to a legit life? Now serving a life sentence, former gang leader Tay Ramey answers these questions with his eye-opening and at times heart-wrenching and heart-opening story.
