The poetic and wildly entertaining tale of aspiring rapper Scott Free and his life changing journey through the cold and obscure world of the Denver music scene. Scott Free is determined to win a hip-hop competition called The Mile Highness that could land him a deal with the most powerful record label. He abandons his job, his home, and his family to chase his dreams of stardom. His life then becomes another song to write, another stage to rock, and another woman to entice. But when Scott forms alliances with a violent crime boss and a sleazy music producer his life and music are affected in ways that could turn fatal. As Scott wrestles with these unhealthy influences and the mounting threat of a rival artist he is haunted by the distance he caused within his family. In a world full of “murder, mayhem, sex, and violence” Scott must fight to maintain his soul and his artistic integrity. Frank Manner’s debut novel vividly depicts the struggles and the inner thoughts of a hip-hop artist and the decadent world that surrounds him. The Mile Highness is a lyrical adventure that travels through the multiple genres of hip-hop asking the question: Does art imitate life or vice versa?
