Former mobster Frank DiMatteo and veteran journalist Nick Christophers are relaunching Mafia-lifestyle magazine Mob Candy as President Street Boys which is "both a reference to the crew DiMatteo used to run with and the title of his recently released memoir about growing up in the Mafia" as reported by VICE:
"The majority of our subscribers are guys in prison," says Christophers. "A lot of guys on the inside want to know what's going on. There's a friend of mine who's doing a life bid for murder in Pennsylvania, and he said he liked the magazine because it makes them feel at home."
In an earlier VICE interview about his memoir DiMatteo recounts the life in old-school Brooklyn during the 1960s and 1970s:
By 13, I was driving, and I started learning about the life. By then, I knew exactly what was going on, so I was privy to a few things, but not much. I didn't go kill nobody at 13, but I was going to the clubs with them. Driving them here and there because I was tall. I looked like I do now, just a lot younger. I was six foot at 13. These guys went to a lot of restaurants, a lot of clubs, topless joints. Driving is basically how I learned what was going on.
DiMatteo was with the Gallo brothers and then later the DeCavalcante family.
