This is Iceberg, in California, broken down into a million pieces of anger, wisdom, but ready for a shift in his own consciousness.

    Pimp by Iceberg Slim

    Betty encouraged Beck to write the story of his life as a novel. According to her, Beck initially considered collaborating with a white author, whom Beck always referred to as "The Professor". When Beck realised he would earn tiny royalties from this deal, he wrote the book himself in three months. So he changed all of their names and descriptions.

    His work tended to be based on his personal experiences in the criminal underworld, and revealed a world of seemingly bottomless brutality and viciousness. His was the first insider look into the world of black pimps, to be followed by a half-dozen pimp memoirs by other writers.

    In , Hollie West questioned in The Washington Post whether societal changes and the women's movement would soon render the outlook expressed in Pimp redundant: "The Iceberg Slim of yesteryear is considered an anachronism to the young dudes now out there on the block trying to hustle. They say he is crude and violent, overlooking his staggering gift of the gab. Iceberg acknowledges that pimping has changed because "women have changed".

    The advent of women's lib , changing sexual mores, general affluence in this society and widespread use of drugs by pimps to control prostitutes have made an impact. By , it had been reprinted 19 times and had sold nearly 2 million copies. Nevertheless, the book's audience remained predominantly black. He sold over six million books prior to his death in ,[3][7] making him one of the best-selling African-American writers.

    Recordings In , Iceberg Slim released the album Reflections, in which he recited passages from his autobiography over a funky musical backing supplied by the Red Holloway Quartet. Reviewing the album for AllMusic , Victor W. Valdivia wrote: "For those who aren't easily offended, this album will be spellbinding.

    Slim's skills as a storyteller cannot be overstated; even at his crudest, he still spins riveting yarns. The New York Times praised the film for its depiction of race relations and the friendship between two con men, set "in the grimier reaches of Philadelphia". Chris Hanley and Dave Mortell are producing.
