Launching January will be the first of three ‘street fiction’ pocket books from 50 Cent’s G-Unit stable, Sound Generator can report.
Released in conjunction with MTV’s Pocket Books, the three releases – Death Before Dishonor by Nikki Turner, Baby Brother by Noire, and The Ski Mask Way by K Elliott – will hit newsstands from January, and feature a gritty, street style.
G-Unit Books will “tell the truth about The Life; the sex, guns and cash; the brutal highs and short lives of the players on the streets,” a statement reveals.
“From the time that we got to know each other, it was always something [50 Cent] discussed and was passionate about,” said agent Marc Gerald. Each of the ‘hip-hop novellas’ are based on true stories.
