Meek Mill is adding “Author” to his growing resume. The Maybach Music Group rapper is penning “Tony Story,” a book based on his song of the same name, due this summer according to Vibe. The book is set to be released via paperback and e-book on May 1.
According to the book’s summary on Amazon:
“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.”
Meek is still working on music despite this new gig. He recently released his version of Drake’s “Started From The Bottom.” “Started from the bottom, now we here/we was selling things, pullin’ strings, puppeteer/ started with a dollar now, I’m jumping out the Lear/ all my ni–as behind me, you can find me in the air” he raps. The #10 rapper on MTV Hottest MCs list is also working on his next mixtape Dreamchasers 3 which is slated to drop May 6th.
