Cash Money is an army, better yet a navy. Better yet a publishing house.

Raw Law: An Urban Guide to Criminal Justice
will be released next month through Cash Money Content, a partnership between Cash Money Records and Atria Books, a division of Simon & Schuster. The book, written by criminal attorney Muhammad Ibn Bashir, discusses the inner workings of the criminal justice system, hoping to inform those already in trouble with the law of their rights while also deterring others from crossing the line.

“The criminal justice is a system that will never respect you unless you demand that it does," says Bashir. "This generation has the money, the power, the voice to change this system for the better.”

“Even if you are a hardened criminal or just plain foolish, you deserve the best of what the system has to offer," he continued. "Unfortunately, the system is not equipped to give you what you deserve, ‘equal justice under the law.’” Raw Law is filled with real-life stories pulled from experiences during legal career, was born out of Bashir’s belief that there was not enough straight talk about the perils of becoming entangled in the criminal justice system for America’s youth.
