Dear Mr. or Ms. Editor or Agent,
Stories shape how people view and understand the world around them, and we often form
convictions from what we hear in the news and on the street. HollyHood is the greatest story of this
generation – the investigation into the assassinations of hip-hop OGs Tupac Shakur and Biggie Smalls.
A man of God, I braved a dangerous world to get answers and justice for Christopher Wallace,
Tupac Shakur, and hip-hop fans worldwide, all while sacrificing my ministry, music, and marriage to
expose the corruption and treachery in late 80s hip-hop.
HOLLYHOOD is a _24607______-word memoir that calls on gospel to elucidate the conspiracy to
cover up the assassinations of two of hip-hip’s most influential artists. I have included a synopsis,
outline, and the first pages of the manuscript. The press release by Issue Wire was published across
major network platforms, and my story was published on Vocal Media and has over 7,000 readers.
Thank you for your consideration. I look forward to hearing from you.
Ivan Law loved the lord and loved to create music. Receiving the blessing of becoming the pastor of one
of the oldest churches and amazing choirs in Los Angeles – Travelers Rest Missionary Baptist Church –
Ivan began his journey of ministering for the lord and communities heavily affected by the crack
epidemic of the 1980s.
The music would bring Ivan back to his musical roots, but before long, the outside world would
penetrate Ivan’s haven, and his compositions would be pirated by some of hip-hop’s biggest names and
game-changers. Despite the constant assaults against his spirit, Ivan held strong and resolved to stay
alive and expose the dastardly deeds done to those loved by hip-hop fans worldwide.
Waging war against Ivan’s dedication and talent, Dr. Dre would stop at literally nothing – not even
murder – to protect his rise to stardom in one of the most coveted genres of music in the world. Using
blatant evidence, common sense, and experience, Ivan overcomes homelessness and solves the
supposedly unsolvable murders of Easy-E, Tupac Shakur, and Biggie Smalls.
