The success of VH1's "Mob Wives" has propelled interest in the 'woman behind the man' scenario in the gangster world. With her poignantly, introspective release of "With Eyes From Both Sides - Living My Life In and Out of the Game," the former boss lady, Thelma Wright, invites us not only into her world, but into her mind, her heart and her soul.

The words "queen pen" and "boss lady" can conjure up many images. One might think of an icy, cold-blooded gangstress who is heartless about the business at hand. Yet, the sparkling, green eyes belonging to Thelma Wright paint a different picture. Though rumored at one time to be the most powerful and dangerous Black woman in Philadelphia, discreetly running a bi-coastal drug empire that her husband left behind, Wright's green eyes reflect a pensive view. Peering into them, we feel the love, the loss, the pain and the retribution of a mother, a wife now widowed and a yes, even a friend. Simply stated, Thelma Wright was married to the mob ... the Black Mafia to be exact. But nothing is ever that simple.
