Meek Mill releasing Gangland tome

Artist News

Meek Mill

Rapper Meek Mill has ‘written’ (perhaps via ghostwriter, who knows?) a book titled ‘Tony Story’, that’ll be available on May Day. Though he’ll be back at his day job five days hence – that is to say, 6 May – when his new mixtape, ‘Dreamchasers 3′ is released.

Meanwhile the official synopsis to ‘Tony Story’, a fictional narrative of gang life in Mill’s native Philadelphia, reads like this: “After a deadly shooting, the streets of Philly were in an uproar and the lives of many people revolved around revenge. Trust was not an option and revenge was the only thing anyone had in common. 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'”.

So, if you want Philly to stay the same, don’t look.
