"The Re-Up #1" by Chad Bilyeu & Juliette de Wit
Before he was known as “Chad in Amsterdam”, Chad Bilyeu spent a decade in Washington, DC where he lived many lives. Most notably he worked at and graduated from Georgetown University. However, unbeknownst to most he also sold copious amounts of drugs there. The Re-Up is a crime story unlike any other; as it details how Bilyeu sold drugs from 2004 to 2008 at Georgetown University in Washington DC and later throughout the East Coast of America. The life of a drug dealer is given nuance and depth rarely seen, as told directly by the person who actually lived the life.
Now that Chad has made the decision to sell weed, he has to actually go and get it. The finer details of ascertaining and transporting a pound of kind bud in the year 2004 are revealed in this second issue of The Re-Up.
