About Pamela Samuels Young
Pamela Samuels Young is a practicing attorney and the author of four legal thrillers. Buying Time, her most recent release, is a scandalous tale of blackmail, murder and betrayal. The book was recently honored by the Black Caucus of the American Library Association, which selected Buying Time as its 2010 Literary Award winner in the Fiction category. The lack of women and people of color depicted as hot shot attorneys in the legal thrillers she read motivated Pamela to take a stab at creating the kind of characters she wanted to see. In the process, the former journalist discovered her passion. A native of Compton, Pamela balances her writing career while working as Managing Counsel for Labor and Employment Law at Toyota Motor Sales, Inc. in Torrance. She is the Fiction Expert for and is on the Board of Directors of the Southern California Chapter of Mystery Writers of America. Pamela is a graduate of USC, Northwestern University and UC Berkeley’s Boalt Hall School of Law.  To contact Pamela or to read an excerpt of her books, visit

New Book About Late Rapper Tupac


“His life had been a series of new addresses, hunger pangs, political meetings, and scary questions from FBI agents. Since early childhood, he had fought to survive.” -- TUPAC SHAKUR: The Life of An American Icon

“Hip-hop's greatest gifts and its heaviest burden—is its legacy of urban mythology. It will be remembered as that bittersweet moment when young black men captured the ears of America and defined themselves on their own terms... In doing so, they raised a defiant middle finger to a history that shamed them with slavery, misrepresented them as coons and criminals, and co-opted the best of their culture.” -- Joan Morgan, Vibe Magazine


Nationwide -- On September 13, 1996, an unknown assailant in Las Vegas, Nevada gunned down Tupac Amaru Shakur, one of the most high profile, controversial, and multi-talented recording artists of his day. He was twenty-five. Tupac Shakur: The Life and Times of an American Icon (Da Capo Press; February 2010) is a critical, incisive, and unauthorized biography that examines Tupac's rise to success, untimely end, and impact on hip-hop culture.

Tayannah McQuillar, author of When Rap Music Had a Conscience, and Dr. Fred Johnson, a Professor of history, team up for this unique, all-encompassing approach to Tupac's extraordinary life story. It begins with his family history, detailing his journey through a childhood of parental neglect and poverty and revealing the ultimate discovery of his artistic talents. The book then charts his rise to domination of the 1990s rap world. The authors look at the urban hero who inspired millions with his daring, benevolent lyrics, as well as the changed man who later emerged when his music transitioned from social-conscience to gangsta rap.

In these pages are secrets even Tupac's most die-hard fans do not know:

* Details of Tupac's marriage to Keisha Morris and why they broke up
* Details about Tupac's relationship with his biological sister Sekiywa
* Why the T.H.U.G.L.I.F.E. movement was the worst idea that Tupac ever had

Tupac's early end brought an abrupt conclusion to an era of social and political critique through rapping, but his music retains its popularity with five posthumous albums and eight Top-Ten Billboard singles since his death. Millions of die-hard fans continue to clamor for books and documentaries that may reveal more about the man, his music, and his still-mysterious death—this passionate biography will further that discourse.

Her music is so refreshing and has so much energy. Signing her to the label and producing each and every track on her album in the studio with her has made me fall in love with music all over again. We created a great big sound for KATLYN and she sounds live exactly as she sounds on her records. Her voice is ridiculous and stops people in a room at an instant in awe anytime she sings. We recently did a live walk in during the 209 Holiday Season at DJ BLAZE booth at NYC's infamous MACY's at Herald Square on the 4rth Floor, where she performed live and tore the house down as shoppers rushed to the booth to get autographs copies of her promo CD of this new young girl with the big voice. She is such a star and I am so happy to be able to work with her and all the new producers we will debut on the album such as The Dawty Music Group & Carlos Guiterez that made this album so special. I can’t wait to release her debut album on March 9, 2010 and her singles FEBRUARY 14, 2010 on VALENTINES DAY so you can have the chance to fall in love with KATLYN, her voice and her music as well soon” says Oscar Sanchez.

Since then she continued to follow her calling and after much practice and play in her hometown she kept to her focus. She continued to pursue her career even further by coming to New York and attending NYU at The Clive Davis School of Music. Here, she was able to not only nurture her talents and perfect her craft singing and producing but she also learned the business aspect of the music industry and learned the importance of networking.

Her diligence paid off after meeting Affluent Records recording artist Kenny Ali at a local New York City music school seminar. She quickly networked got a hold of the right contact and actively emailed the label’s CEO Oscar Sanchez right after. “I constantly check my emails everyday”, says Sanchez. “After hearing her music from the first time in my email box, it became real catchy for a demo, and it had great melodies. After I spoke with her it was easy to see her music reflected so much of her personality. She is a great writer and producer & overall has a great voice, much in the likes of her influences Christina Aguilera, Alicia Keys, and Mariah Carey. I signed her immediately. She is everything that reflects the best of AFFLUENT, She will be a Grammy winner, I know it!”

TV One Premiering New Sitcom Starring Tatyana Ali

In a special three-night programming event Tuesday, Jan. 19 – Thursday, Jan. 21, TV One will feature the world premiere of an all-new African-American produced sitcom, LOVE THAT GIRL!, that stars Tatyana Ali and marks the exciting return to television of producer/writer/director Bentley Kyle Evans (Martin, The Jamie Foxx Show), who also created the series. Also participating as an executive producer of the four-episode, half-hour series is superstar comedian and actor Martin Lawrence.

This sexy, new half-hour sitcom, which will air in back-to-back episodes from 9-10 PM (all times ET) each night, stars Tatyana Ali (Fresh Prince of Bel Air, TV One Access) as a young divorcee who returns home to southern California for a second chance in life and a career in her father's (Phil Morris) real estate business. When her unemployed brother Latrell (Alphonso McAuley) unexpectedly moves in with her, the world that she was trying to create is suddenly turned upside down, and life will never be the same. Tyana's new move reconnects her with old friends, especially her best friend Nefertiti (Kendyl Joi) who is happily single and ready to help her friend get her groove back. There are many other characters in Tyana's world and they all know that she is smart, sexy, fun-loving and far from perfect... That's why they all LOVE THAT GIRL! Encore airing are scheduled for midnight each night.

LOVE THAT GIRL! will air on TV One each night immediately following two back-to-back episodes of Martin at 8 PM. Two all-new episodes of LOVE THAT GIRL! will kick off the programming event on Tuesday, Jan. 19 from 9-10 PM, and one new episode will premiere on Wednesday, Jan. 20 and Thursday, Jan. 21 at 9 PM, followed at 9:30 PM by a repeat of one of the Tuesday, Jan. 19 episodes.

“We are delighted to be a part of this exciting project and bring this fresh, new comedy to TV One viewers,” said TV One Senior Vice President of Original Programming Toni Judkins. “In many ways, LOVE THAT GIRL! is a family affair, and we feel like Bentley Kyle Evans and his colleagues are bringing LOVE THAT GIRL! home to TV One, since Tatyana Ali already is the host of our popular original entertainment show TV One Access, and Martin has been an incredibly strong part of our primetime lineup since the network launched six years ago on January 19.”

“It's great to be back in the television game and working with a network like TV ONE. Not only do they get the business behind programming to the more sophisticated urban market, they have the ideal audience for a series like ours, “ said Bentley Kyle Evans “What we wanted to do was create a series that was unique and distinctive, intelligently written, and well crafted – and I think we accomplished all four objectives with the episodes we created. And on the business side, thanks to our two Distribution partners, Dennis Ray and Desmond Gumbs, we were able to structure a business relationship with TV ONE that will bring benefits to all parties involved. If executed properly, this will represent a whole new model for producing and delivering quality scripted series to the television market, at a reasonable cost” he added.

Bentley Evans, and partners, produced the sitcom outside the traditional studio system by personally calling in favors and using unconventional methods, personal resources and relationships with industry veterans behind the scenes to give of their time to bring this vision to life including Martin Lawrence and Jeff Franklin, creator/writer and producer of the hit series “Full House” and “Hangin' with Mr. Cooper.” Franklin also wrote for the classic series Laverne & Shirley. In addition, Trenten Gumbs and Raphael Saadiq are also Executive Producers on the project.

The project was shopped by newly formed Ray-Gumbs Entertainment, a Content Distribution Company headed by longtime Television Syndicator, Dennis Ray, and his partner, Desmond Gumbs. Ray-Gumbs also negotiated the terms of the deal with TV ONE and will handle the syndication of the series.

Bentley Kyle Evans began his entertainment career as an actor in Robert Townsend's “Hollywood Shuffle” followed by featured roles in “I'm Gonna Get U Sucka” directed by Keenan Ivory Wayans, and New LineCinema's “House Party”. He met Martin Lawrence when they were to co-star in an ill-fated ABC pilot, and later decided that his true calling was behind the camera. He began writing and Martin Lawrence soon arranged for his friend to write for his new TV show. Bentley Evans quickly moved up the ranks and became co-executive producer/show runner of the hit series. He branched out into feature films and also teamed up with Jamie Foxx to create the hit series, “The Jamie Foxx Show.” He became one of the few individuals to run two hit shows on two different networks – all before he turned 30.

Launched in January 2004, TV One ( serves nearly 49.5 million households, offering a broad range of real-life and entertainment-focused original programming, classic series, movies, and music designed to entertain, inform and inspire a diverse audience of adult African American viewers. TV One's investors include Radio One [NASDAQ: ROIA and ROIAK;], the largest radio company that primarily targets African American and urban listeners; Comcast Corporation [NASDAQ: CMCSA and CMCSK;], the leading cable television company in the country; The DirecTV Group; Constellation Ventures; Syndicated Communications; and Opportunity Capital Partners.
