Product Description

Book Description

Biggie's wife, Lil' Kim's rival, Tupac's rumoured lover and Platinum selling R&B queen; Faith Evans was the cause and ultimate victim of the East Coast/West Coast rap wars of the 90s. Despite all the drama, Faith has kept her secrets and her silence... until now.

About the Author

Faith Evans started her career as a backup singer and songwriter and is now a platinum selling artist. In 1994 she met the Notorious B.I.G. and married him after just 9 days. They had unofficially separated 3 years later when Biggie was shot and killed in March 1997.

I couldn't put this book down. Faith did a brilliant job in explaining, relaying and somehow pulling you, extremely well, in to her life from grass roots level. For me it was almost as though I was right with her through the good and the bad.

This is a really good read and I have so much respect for her. This book demonstrates her stength and drive. It is also extremely good at showing her passionate (I am Faith Evans) side mingled nicely together with her domestic (I am mum) side) as well as her I will achieve (career) side.

Absolute must read for all those that like to be inspired, her side of the story and insight into the record business. Great Book!!!

Okay it's been almost a decade since i got my hands on an unputdownable book!!! and even though i expected it to be a bit informing or okay i didn't expect to be so intensely drawn in... you just couldn't fake it, she was talking about HER real life to the WORLD.. i really commend her honesty and bravery. I felt just like that teenager making a truckload of mistakes, felt her excitement at her miraculous break in the industry and felt an eerie sense of grief as she lost her first husband and the battle to save what they had, exposed unknown characters i.e charlie baltimore!...can't say much more. A neccessary purchase, you get morrrreeee than your money's worth!, just short of words...

This book takes me back to a golden era in black music and Faith does a great job of making you her companion throughout her life and her music. Really engaging, emotional and real, no bars held!

Whether you are a fan or not you get an insiders perspective of Bad Boy Records label and artist roster in the hey day, as well as insights on other artists and the ways of the music business. At parts it made me think, I remember when I bought that record, I remember hearing that song, I remember going to that show, I remember hearing that on the radio or seeing that on TV.

I learnt so much more about Faith Evans the woman, the artist, the wife and widow and mother and couldn't put this book down! Brilliant read!

A very honest account of experiences of growing up as a black female artist in the music industry during the 90's. Some of the experiences discussed in this book were quite painful to read but, this is a book of hope, determination and spirituality.

I'd heard of Faith Evan's bio back when it was first released but never bothered to get it. But after reading a few other ones I decided to give this one a try. And I'm glad I did! This was a really personal and spiritually enlightening read. I learned so much just by reading about her dysfunctional relationships. For the people on here saying that there are parts missing or that her behavior doesn't make sense or isn't consistent- nothing could be further from the truth. The biography is psychologically viable. You either get who she is as a person or you don't (most introverts are misunderstood anyway). There are a few things to note. The first thing is that you don't go through a physically abusive violent relationship where you are kicked and punched in the face and end up unaffected. Not only does it traumatize you emotionally, but this type of trauma effects the part of your brain that is responsible for decision-making and other core functions. So, some of the spontaneous, impulsive things that she does do not surprise me. And considering everything that she went through she comes off as being quite determined, strong-willed and independent to still make it through and keep going. The second thing to note is that all the beat-downs of other women, far from being funny are the result of "identification-with- the-abuser-syndrome". Having been abused by someone more powerful, she then turns that behavior and aggression towards someone with less power where she can get away with it i.e other women. And many women who've been beaten by men do this. Next thing to note is that Puffy is a narcissist. I hope she doesn't for one moment believe that some of the stunts he pulled (won't create spoilers!) were by accident. He did the same thing to Mark Curry.Read more ›

Faiths Memoir for me was truly an inspirational read, in all honesty apart from listening to her music and knowing of her Marriage to Biggie I really didn't know anything about Faith however since reading her book I feel like one of her best friends and we have travelled her journey together.

Faiths Memoir is inspirational,a very interesting read and is also something that most us women are able to relate to in some way or another and although I don't know her I feel truly proud of all that she has achieved and accomplished.

Well done girl!

Some of the stuff that went on was sure a hot mess! But the main thing is that she regained this faith in her gift & the fact she had to start standing up for herself in the Independence she had & not sleeping with the first 'cute' guy. But she had to learn the VERY hard way I guess & I do however respect her for being brutally honest because not many people will own up to doing these sort of things. Alot of the relationship stuff goes for anyone young tbh, who starts dating at that young age especially with a man allot older & obviously molded her way of dealing with the relationships she went on later in life. The truth remains!
