Stormey: The Woman Behind The Most Feared Man In Hip Hop will delineate the love affair, the life lived and the experiences of Stormey Ramdhan with a man known to the world as Suge Knight, as well as her journey to establish her independence and provide for her children after the fall of Death Row Records. Stormey’s story will also expose the untold Death Row story as seen through the eyes of the woman behind the mogul.
The book begins after a chance meeting during the summer of 1993, when Suge and I quickly began a courtship that would last for the next 20 years. In this book I will discuss the beginnings of our relationship as well as the sudden wealth, success, and the super stardom that came with knowing Suge and the artists who were putting out every hit from the Death Row Records catalogue of the early nineties.
As a naïve young woman who had lived an ordinary life until Suge became a part of it, there was more money and luxury around me than I had ever been accustomed to during the first six months of knowing him. Our bond was instant, and Suge provided for me in every way possible. I was young and wth us there was no real endgame– my entire life plan until that fateful meeting had been to complete a degree in nursing in North Carolina where I had a full scholarship. However, absolutely nothing could prepare me for how much my life was going to change.
My main goal in finally telling my story is to inspire any young women who may currently find themselves in similar situations or were once in the same position as I was. In essence, Stormey: The Woman Behind The Most Feared Man In Hip Hop is a survivor story, I believe this book will be an eye-opener for young girls who may think they never have to worry because everything will be provided for them, I hope that upon learning about my story they will be able to realize the dangers in placing their entire livelihood in the hands of one person.
I also believe my story will resonate with the men and women who were involved in the West coast rap scene at the same time I was, and had always wondered what occurred within the inner circle of Death Row Records.
Finally I believe this book is my chance to humanize an image. Many people will relate to our story of unconditional love, innocence, lies, betrayal, jail, and ultimately abandonment, and I believe it’s a chance to display what the pressures of Hollywood can do to a family; how losing focus and bad decisions can end it all. This story will let everyone know how the downfall of a sole provider can affect the whole family, and show what people have to go through in putting the pieces of a family back together when it all falls down.
