About the Book

Lee Datrice was just six when his father first called him a hustler. Since he was a little boy, he has always been about the hustle. In short, Datrice loves switching it up in life. In a retelling of his roller coaster journey through life, Datrice begins by detailing his personal experiences while growing up in San Francisco as an only child of divorced parents who started his first hustle collecting pop bottles for money and recruiting other neighborhood children to work for him. When his father moved with him to Louisiana a short time later, Datrice shares entertaining stories of how he rode a pony and cart down a country dirt road and managed to escape a determined blue racer snake. As life led him back to San Francisco, Datrice chronicles his experiences as navigated through San Francisco in the sixties and seventies during its heyday of sex and drugs, through his entrepreneurial pursuits, and now as the founder of a nonprofit foundation. Born and Raised to Hustle is the memoir of a talented hustler who has always worked hard and managed to do whatever it takes to survive the wild times and challenges that life brings.
