Ruthless: A Memoir

Ruthless: A MemoirRuthless: A Memoir by Jerry Heller
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

After seeing Straight Outta Compton, I wanted to find out if the portrayal of Heller matches his recollections. As expected, Heller strongly defends himself against Ice Cube and Dr. Dre's accusations of financial impropriety. The interesting aspects of Heller's career are really the early years - his childhood in Ohio, moving to Los Angeles in the 60s and his interactions with the biggest movers and shakers in the music industry. If anything, I wanted more information as Heller jumps between time periods and leaves few areas underdeveloped.
