Rapper and Dunk Ryder Record label CEO Trick Daddy is set to take on yet another title: author.
The 33-year-old Miami-born rapper, told AllHipHop.com that he is currently working on a new autobiographical book.
The book is amazing already, Trick Daddy told AllHipHop.com about the untitled book. I have a writer, I have a agent already shopping the book, and actually, I think well have a book deal by next week.
The untitled book will offer readers Trick Daddys personal, honest account of his life, from his upbringing in Miamis notorious Liberty Square Housing Development [aka the PorknBeans Projects], to his successes in the entertainment industry.
The rapper, born Maurice Young, aims to shed light on a side of Miamis history that is rarely touched upon.
The book will discuss the effects of gentrification and the drug trade on Miamis African-American community, challenging the somewhat glamorized version of the citys ongoing criminal element shown in films like Scarface, television programs like CSI Miami and video games like Grand Theft Auto.
I seen the movie Cocaine Cowboys and all that, Trick Daddy told AllHipHop.com. That aint show who broke that s**t down and cooked that s**t up and who got addicted to that s**t. They forgot about that. When they do CSI Miami, they should fly over the [whole] city and show them the difference. A lot of [A&Es] The First 48 is filmed right here in Overtown where a lot of bodies lay at because theres nothing else for the people to do. And walking distance from that, [Donald] Trump is building a multi-million dollar building. And that two miles from that, theres an island that Oprah [Winfrey] owns a house on that you cant even drive to, they put they s**t on a ferry boat and go home. Since the year 1985, $5 billion dollars in cash went through our banks, the n***as aint get it. They aint even wanna give us all our food stamps!
Trick Daddys untitled autobiographical book is due in stores later this year.
