(Previously Loving the Thug Life) 16 year old Ariela never had an easy life. People always said she had it good but they were just looking from the outside. Ariela's mom died from cancer when she was just 5 years old. She was raised by just her father and older brother. She grew up trusting no nigga with the fear of getting hurt. Ariela's father, Paul, and her brother, Craig, are very over protective and are not afraid to kill a nigga that ever hurt Ariela. Paul is the biggest kingpin in Atlanta with Craig following right behind him. Ariela knows all about the business which makes her the way she is today. When she meets Marcus, a close friend of Craigs, can he change her for the better or will they both fall into that thug life??
