    This is an interesting article. Tyree says he through with Urban Lit. The main reason seems to be that the genre is now calling the shots. Retailers are even geetting into how gritty the title sounds as it relates to sales. This is the link to his article:

    Has the black readership been conditioned to expect one type of product that blurs out the talent of the individual author? Is this the first step in a return to a more diverse black literature selection? The answers lies in what our readers will buy.
