Meet the Bronx native and self-proclaimed “Voice of the Inner-City”……..Mr. Al King. As an Entrepreneur, Author, Publisher, Mentor and Talk Show host, his goals have always been set on being monumentally accomplished. From humble beginnings and being a student of his experiences, writing his thoughts down were something that became second nature. With that innate ability and impeccable business acumen, he was inspired to pen his debut book “Let it be Known: The Al King Point of View.” Always thinking business first, he created his own publishing company Go Gettaz Publications, LLC with the objective of handling his own creative vision and to also provide a platform for other aspiring authors. Having accumulated a loyal following throughout the years due to his extensive background in entertainment and corporate sectors, he is very excited about what the future holds with the execution of a highly anticipated project. He states that “Let it be Known is a reality based approach and collage of life challenges that none of us are exempt from experiencing.”
This book is a motivational and sincere conversation derived from my perspective, on a wide array of life’s matters to provoke thought. While some have been directly experienced, others have been taken heed to in my challenged journey. Through affirmation and creative energy, I was only a vessel of these exchanges, reaching this point so that a platform of expression could be shared with you—the reader. I am sure some of you will be able to directly relate, in addition to the content of this book provoking plenty of debate as you absorb each page. Either way, I have humbly made it my heartfelt mission to empower, inspire, and influence you through each word. I represent the voice of the inner-city struggle, the Man with a vision that has had to spar with both the obvious and the inevitable. I also speak on behalf of those that have been stigmatized and labeled, the minority that is feared, misunderstood, and devalued…I am Al King.
A strong misconception exists in general society that bad things happen only in low-income communities and nowhere else; the world needs to know this is not fact. The cornerstone of this false impression comes from the upper echelons of America who view low-income communities as the birthplace of all mayhem; inflicting such national issues as crime, homelessness, poverty, and drug addiction. What is not highlighted and seldom mentioned are the many great minds and people that were cultivated from this same environment—using both their talents and gifts to enhance our inner-cities. Being a student and not a product of my environment, I would do absolutely nothing to take back the course it took for me to reach this peak in my life. There was no other way to ask for a higher level of humility and refinement than to pursue the path of all humanity.
