(AllHipHop News) Much of Rick Ross's life has been chronicled in song, but the rapper has not formally told his rags to riches saga in the particular discipline of authorship. That changes later this year.
Rick Ross will release his memoir, called Hurricanes, in the fall. The self-proclaimed biggest boss has written his life and times in with Neil Martinez-Belkin. The hardcover will be published by Hanover Square Press. Neil Martinez-Belkin is notably because he also co-wrote the autobiography of Gucci Mane.
"My story has always been deeper than rap. With this book I wanted to go deeper than I ever have," Ross said in a press statement, "I wanted to tell people about the life of William Leonard Roberts."
The book will include the rapper's life from the rough streets of Miami's Carol City, his come up in the music game and his job as a correctional officer.
Peter Joseph, Hanover Square Press' editorial director, stated, "Most people know Rick Ross as a global icon, but few are familiar with his origin story." "Hurricanes transcends the conventions of celebrity memoir to offer an intimate and inspiring portrait of an artist who at every turn defied the odds and continues to change the game."
Hurricanes will be available on Sept. 3.
