Sort of like Cliff Notes, but with a slightly different approach. Thug Note’s slogan is: Classical Literature. Original Gangster.

You only need to watch a 5-minute video to take in Dr. Sweet’s interpretation. I just have one piece of commentary: Learn by any means necessary!(and continue doing it for the rest of your life) The collection is actually quite extensive and includes popular titles like Hamlet, To Kill a Mockingbird, The Catcher on the Rye, Macbeth and more!
