Miami is the hot, humid and crime ridden backdrop to Makaveli’s Prince, which sees the youthful innocence of Nia Rodriguez snatched away.
Nia struggles with her racial identity, abandonment by her father, sexual assault and family tragedy. She also unearths a family secret that exposes an unimaginable conspiracy behind some of the biggest murders of the last half century.
With no one else to look out for her, she finds Leon Brown and gets mixed up in the drug game. Leon is a dealer on the fast track to the top. He’s got his own torturous past but they find a way to take care of each other.
What Nia gets is a street education. It’s not pretty. Eventually her loyalty is tested as she’s torn between Leon and her own desire to pursue a legitimate career as a rap artist.
Makaveli’s Prince takes Nia Rodriguez on a journey of self-discovery where her street education is challenged by those who want her dead.
Will her past catch up with her? Can she face up to her true identity and expose what she knows?
