Meek Mill To Release Debut Novel, "Tony's Story"

Meek Mill takes to a new medium to tell his story.

Meek Mill has had no problem sharing his story on wax through his mixtapes and albums, but now the Philadelphia rapper is taking to print media.

Meek is slated to release Tony's Story on both paperback and e-book on May 1. The release of the book comes shortly before his Dreamchasers 3 mixtape, which drops May 6.

Below is a synopsis of Tony's Story, as well as the book's cover (spotted at HipHopWired):

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.

Other Hip Hop artists to enter the print business recently include Lil Wayne, Prodigy, Common, and Pharrell.

    "cass 1st album in 2004, ross in 2006. only 2 years between they're debut albums" I'd rather go gold several times, be relevant, and most importantly, still be around than go platinum, burn out and be best remembered for one stupid fucking song.

    "you mean like his 2 million followers bought his album???" His followers burned it for free. Some followers.

  • YEBO

    NOBODY MURKED HIS CAREER, IF SOMEBODY DOES, DEFINITLY IT'S NOT CASSIDY. HE FAILED TO GO PLATINUM IN THE ERA WHEN EVERY JACKASS HAD AT LEAST DOUBLE PLATINUM. HOW HE CAN MURK SOMEBODY, LOL. NOBODY GIVES A FUCK ABOUT CASSIDY RIGHT NOW, THAT'S WHY HE TOOK THE CHANCE AND RESPONDED TO MEEK. MEEK IS NOW THE KING OF PHILLY, HAS ONE OF THE BEST SELLING RAP ALBUMS OF THE PAST YEARS, BOOK AND NEW MIXTAPE COMING OUT. CASSIDY CAN'T EVEN RELEASE AN ALBUM RIGHT NOW, HIS LAST 2010 EFFORT DEBUTED ON NUMBER 145 (LOL).

RICK ROSS! cass 1st album in 2004, ross in 2006. only 2 years between they're debut albums.

    That was the epitome of lame, Art Brooks. And for the record Meek challenged Cassidy to a battle and nothing happened cause that fake hustla was too scared to put his money where his mouth was.

    "he should probably yell on every track to keep people listening" Funny how his yelling bothers you yet 2pac yelled on alot of songs. So did DMX.

    • wow

      2pac and meek should never be in the same sentence unless your asking who 2pac should never be compared to. 2pac was more than rap and more than a hiphop rapper..

      and they talk about more than riding through the city in a ghost with a rolex on his arm after making it from the bottom the top

      Compared to Meek, them niggas didn't yell that much.

    Damn!! You would think it was all white people leaving all of these negative ass comments. I think it will actually be an alright novel. Dude is creative with the Tony Stories in his raps, so with an editor and a publisher backing him, he will be alright.

  • Anonymous

    "cassidy actually announced that he was putting out a book 2 or 3 months ago. long before meek did paid someone to write this for him" There's zero demand for Cassidy so timber! with those book sales. At least Meek will get some curious fans checking his stuff out.

  • Anonymous

    "Cassidy accomplished bore" I agree. Cassidy's music is boring.

  • Jacc

    He must have been influenced by HHDX niggas. You love to write novels and/or essays whenever you want to defend something.

    dude don't even have an indoor voice n he wants to write a book

  • Anonymous

    and he's off to ruin another form of media i'm sure he'll do a fine job

  • Eric wright

    LOL, who is this nigga's editor or publisher? That cover says "Tony story" instead of "Tony's story". That story sound like a million other hood tales.
