The Lox‘s Styles P has announced plans to release his first fiction book called Mr. Invincible and a small tour this summer.

Keeping details to a minimum, the Ghost described what fans could expect from his release.

The book, which Styles describes as a “jail mystery,” is the D-Block rapper’s first foray into the literary world. “I got a fiction book called Mr. Invincible coming out Nicki Turner Presents,” Styles revealed to XXL. “It’s just a fiction joint. It’s a little story, I’m just trying to get in another lane and do something creative and you gonna get to see it in a minute.” When asked if he had any help putting the work together Styles replied, “They got a little editing team, but all the writing is me, all the idea is me, all the thought is me…We about to get on the road do a lil’ promo tour for that…Hit up Philly, VA, North Carolina, Connecticut, Boston and the Midwest and West too.” (XXLMag.com)

Styles previously spoke with SOHH about informing fans about issues outside of hip-hop via his Phantom Gangster Chronicles DVD last year.

“This is just the chance to just see real life sh*t in the industry instead of all this other sh*t you used to seeing on these DVDs and the same old footage and same old sh*t you hear,” he promised. “You gonna hear in-depth sh*t about how people make their money, how they spend their money, how they use some of their influences in life…We got a section about eating good. [There’s] a section about exercising. So what you’re expecting is some real, real footage. As far as the mixtape, you can expect some real street sh*t, you know, just going in.” (SOHH)

Lil Kim recently announced plans to ink her own tell-all book called The Price of Loyalty. Continue reading

 Now the homey Sheek gets love on this site, he has always given us interviews when we needed it. Now my beef is that he really needs to hit us with some of that raw dope he is known for. With an album named Silverback Gorilla ,I am expecting some hard shit the females wont like. I know he got some of that on the album but wish he would have dropped it first. Anyway hope he does his numbers  and then gets back with Jada, Styles, and drop the Lox album we been waiting for 10 years.
