One aspiring journalist's guide to surviving Manhattan on a less than, ahem, fruitful income. In a shifting industry. During the recession. So why the obscure allusion to a marginally known film with a pimp / aspiring rapper protagonist? This reference is only fitting as we both are from Memphis with Big Dreams, but FYI, I do not dabble in prostitution. So if you have different expectations, please visit elsewhere. I can only promise you my contrived quips, financial tips, and an organ or two if the price is right.
