“I had to find a power that would not only get me through my current sentence, but would free me from prison forever.”
The Last Hustle is the story of Kenny’s life as a criminal and his transformation in prison after his meeting with Gangaji in 1994.
For thirty-one years Kenny Johnson’s most fervent desire was to hear his name ‘ringing in the streets’ as a hustler, thief, and pimp. Running parallel with that desire was a persistent seed of spiritual longing that would not leave him alone.
Kenny was arrested thirty-seven times and spent much of his life in prison, or on the run. Each time behind bars sent him into a deep and profound despair. Eventually his desire for lasting freedom would drive him to find a power that could not only get him through his final sentence, but free him from prison forever. The Last Hustle, written in the first person, is the story of Kenny’s life as a criminal and his transformation in prison.
