Meek Mill to release debut book
Rapper Meek Mill is adding another title to his name and that is author as he sets to release his debut book May 1. In his book he tells the story of best friends Tony and Ty who are faced with trust and revenge in ‘Tony’s Story.’
‘Tony’s Story’ looks to have success in the urban fiction world, those familiar with hip hop and Meek Mill’s music.
Still, Meek Mill looks to do what most other rappers do and that is to cross over into a realm other that hip hop.
‘Tony’s Story’ is based on Meek’s song of the same name and is due for release May 1 in paperback and ebook.
Here’s a synopsis of ‘Tony’s Story’ from amazon.com:
“Tony and Ty had big dreams of getting rich. Although they grew up like brothers, once money and envy entered the equation, greed took over and loyalty went out the door.
After a deadly shooting, the streets of Philly were in an uproar and the lives of many people revolved around revenge. Gold digger Kee capitalized on the built-up tension; but before she could really enjoy the fruits of her labor, she was thrust into the middle of a street war with the cost being her life.
Trust was not an option and revenge was the only thing anyone had in common. Paulie wanted revenge for his cousin; LB wanted revenge for his brother. They both had blood in their eyes and murder in mind; names were called while gunners lurked in the shadows. It became bigger than the almighty dollar and no one was safe. Philly won’t be the same after you’re a witness to Tony Story.”
Also, fans will be delighted to hear that the MMG rapper is hard at work, working on his next mixtape ‘DreamChasers 3’ which is slated for release May 6th. If the wait seems too long, fans can enjoy the remix Meek did to Drake’s ‘Started from the bottom.’
