In the Bronx, in the early 90s, two young drug dealers ruled an intersection known as “The Corner on Blood.” They lived large, wearing mink, drinking champagne, getting rich. Then their fraught relationship fell apart, dead bodies piled up, and one accused the other of a double homicide he didn’t commit. Or did he? We hear from the cops, the DA, the terrified eyewitnesses, the dealer doing life, and the dealer who put him there. They all tell their stories to award-winning journalist Steve Fishman, who has spent seven years untangling the twisted web of justice in the Bronx, and chronicling one man’s last chance to overturn his life sentence.

Empire on Blood

Fishman nails it!

Narrator - Calm Down Already

The enunciation and tone of the narrator make this almost unlistenable - buddy has cranked up the machismo and street-wise affectations up to 11. The story is compelling enough without having this dude ham up every word to make the descriptions of someone eating a sandwich or what the weather was like drip with sarcasm and sinister intent.
As mentioned, the story is great, but I just wish the narrator would take his acting chops CSI or a local theatre production of 8 Mile.
