Chris Wilson had a difficult childhood. He grew up next to one of the largest public housing developments in the country, avoiding his mother's abusive boyfriend. By the time he was 13, he was carrying a gun at all times.

Newsy's Chance Seales spoke with Wilson about his new book, "The Master Plan."
