“The G-Code: Behind The Bars” written by Queens-born, Miami-based executive Lemar Ingram is a groundbreaking exploration of how the wisdom of hip-hop culture can be applied to succeed within the dynamic landscape of corporate America. Drawing inspiration from legendary hip-hop artists such as Jay-Z, Nas, and Jadakiss, Ingram presents corporate commandments in a format inspired by the iconic “10 Crack Commandments,” bridging urban cultural wisdom with modern business strategy.
In the book’s chapters, Ingram delves into how transferable skills from unconventional life experiences can be harnessed for success within corporate environments. He showcases how skills like freestyling, often dismissed as “hippity hop foolishness,” hold the potential for eloquent impromptu responses and extemporaneous speech—skills often overlooked by traditional executives. “The G-Code” challenges the conventional notions of success by highlighting the untapped potential in unexpected places.
Recognizing diverse learning preferences, “The G-Code” is available in both soft-cover and hardback editions. And for those who prefer an immersive alternative, the book also includes multimedia elements that bring its content to life.
“The G-Code” made its debut at the prestigious Museum of Graffiti in Miami’s creative hub and was also a prominent feature at the African American Research Library and Cultural Center’s South Florida Book Festival. With its fusion of cultural appreciation and practical advice, the book is garnering attention for its innovation in blending business acumen with artistic expression.
