The slums of Philadelphia, Pennsylvania are like no other.
Here, the level of desperation and grime is only surpassed by the city's murder toll.
JAYDEN and his right-hand man, NICO, navigate the atrocities of their hood like the savages they've been forced to become until a wicked spin of fate puts the two blood friends in the crosshairs of the police.
Nico refuses to let them both go down, so he makes a decision to free his man after extracting a promise from Jayden that is sealed in blood.
But some promises are hard to keep, especially when the temptation to break them comes in the form of the beautiful but forbidden WHITNEY.
Will Jayden honor his word to his imprisoned partner? Or will he prove that he's ROTTEN TO THE CORE, like the streets that bred him? The answer to that question will ignite a battle so bloody and fierce should Nico ever see freedom again.
