Go Hard: The Takedown of Ace Capone is a semi-autobiographical account of the titular Philadelphia drug kingpin’s illicit activities, penned while still in prison. Ace Capone, born Alton Coles, once moved $25 million worth of cocaine between New Jersey, Pennsylvania, Maryland, and Delaware. This all carried on under the cover of his label Take Down Records, a day care center, and a water ice stand, before his conviction in March 2008.

The book was written “to reveal the aftermath of what happens as a result of being raised in an environment upon poor parenting skills, as well as being a key player in the streets,” Ace Capone told AllHipHop. “This book was not written to glorify the game.”

“Although,” he noted, “the book is solely for entertainment purposes for the readers, the overall gain and lesson of this book is to learn from our mistakes and to lead those that are mislead/misguided.”

Go Hard is the first in a trilogy that Ace Capone is composing as he serves his 55+ year prison term in the Big Sandy Federal Correctional Institution. It is to be released by his new company, Key To Life Publishing, formed to foster positive messages in the streets.

Take Down Records is known for developing such artists as Bugsy and Snake, who worked with big names like Freeway, Beanie Sigel and Tone Trump.

The book release party will be at Millcreek Tavern on September 14th. Ace Capone’s entrepreneurial spirit remains unbridled.
