Don't Believe The Hype
August 25, 2020
by Todd Snyder

This will be the first biography of Drew "Bundini" Brown, Muhammad Ali’s confidant, cornermen and “hype man.” Bundini was a singular figure in the history of boxing, the genesis of hip-hop, and American culture at large.

This book will take a look at a complex and charismatic man who fought some demons, but ultimately served as a model for loyalty, dignity, character, selflessness, and humor.

Everyone should have a Bundini in their corner!
