C-ZAR WISEMEN
Author of REVOLUTIONARY: A Poetic Autobiography

undefined  
ABOUT THE BOOK 
Revolutionary is the follow up to it's precursor Poetic Philosophy under C-zar Wisemen's former  name Derek Perkins. This poetry book is a poetic autobiography that is inspired by real life feelings and experiences. This sequel gets deeper into the author's background that leads to who he is and his views on the world and issues affecting black people. In this work, C-zar addresses the entertainment industry, religion, self-reliance, crooked politics, romance, heartbreak, and more. This author is hopeful that his writings will spark the minds of millions of black people in the United States and around the world to fight against white supremacy and rise to greatness.  

ABOUT THE AUTHOR
Rap artist C-zar Wisemen is from Charlottesville, Virginia, representing the indie rap/ hip-hop label Philosophy Entertainment. Albums released are "Tha New Testament" and "Real Niggaz" added with an Ep titled "Revolution" as well as a few singles from his music catalog.

Acting is also a passion of his, and he has acted in a few indie films. C-zar Wisemen's aim is to inspire the black community to change for the better through his works.
