The Wondertroy Review

A great introspective on west coast hip hop from someone who was there.. From a B Girl to one of the first video vixens to Ice T's girl. Darlene is and was every mans dream woman!! The book was so nice I had to buy it twice!! Don't claim to be hip hop and pass this book bye!!!! Darlene Ortiz is the Definition of a Down!

Definition of Down

This was a good read! It was great to hear her side of the story, to know how it began and how it ended. A story that I don't think Ice-T would be willing to tell. Darlene, you are the definition of down and you will always be the Queen.

Great book!

An absolute must read!
