Detroit Rich Boys tells the story of James Mussellistine, better known as Muscles to his friends, a young teenager from the west side of Detroit. He ended up being part of the original Puritan Avenue gang known as the PAs. Although he was raised in a middle-class neighborhood off Six Mile Road, the young gangster couldn't stop hanging out with the likes of Niddy and Roni, two friends from across Puritan Road. When Muscles and his friends enroll in Mumford, Detroit's most volatile school, the roller-coaster lifestyle of gangbanging rolls from the school strait to the streets.

The Puritan Gang was the poorest gang in the school, and their numbers were weak compared to their legendary rivals, the Six, Seven, Eight Mile Gangs. Even so, Mumford's Puritan leaders, the PAs, arose from virtual anonymity to become one of the most dangerous neighborhood gangs in Detroit history.

"Once upon a time Detroit was once considered the promise land for black people in America. By the1980s, however, Detroit had become the land of bondage, where people were enslaved by drugs, poverty, and violence. From the Lunatic Assassins and the 8 mile Sconies to the Black Killers and the PAs. The streets of the Westside are all here." Al Profit Murder City
