Guillermo, congratulations on your book! Tell us, what was your childhood like?

  • Thank you. I went through a lot of hardships during my childhood which I talk about in my book.My mother was addicted to heroin and my father was an absentee pimp father.You can only imagine how fast I had to grow up and be on the streets drug dealing.

Where did you grow up, Guillermo?

  • I grew up on the mean streets of LA and I became a drug dealer at the young age of 12 years old.

How did you end up getting involved with gangs?

  • At the age of 12, I was in the streets of LA unsupervised, so it was only a matter of time for me to meet the wrong crowd and start selling drugs.

Were there any specific challenges that gave you a life changing wakeup call?

  • Being shot and going to prison were not challenges they were a blueprint but having 4 daughters is a challenge the toughest man will become humble too.

How did you leave gang life?

  • I moved away…It really was that simple but remember me moving doesn’t stop an enemy from looking for me, but I was, and still am highly respected so I’m not worried – insteadI’m attentively alert.
