Miami-based rapper Trick Daddy recently signed a book deal with MTV/Pocket Books to release an autobiography of the rapper.
The book, titled Magic City: Trials Of A Native son, will focus on “Trick’s rise from obscurity, as one of 27 children born into poverty in Miami’s infamous Liberty Square Housing Development,” according to AllHipHop.
The book, co-written by award-winning journalist Peter Bailey, will account the details of Trick’s life on the streets. It will chronicle his growing up as the son of a pimp and brother to a drug dealer, who was eventually murdered.
“I seen the movie Cocaine Cowboys and all that,” Trick Daddy said in an interview with AllHipHop. “That aint show who broke that s**t down and cooked that s**t up and who got addicted to that s**t. They forgot about that. When they do CSI Miami, they should fly over the [whole]city and show them the difference. A lot of [A&E’s] The First 48 is filmed right here in Overtown where a lot of bodies lay at because there’s nothing else for the people to do. And walking distance from that, [Donald] Trump is building a multi-million dollar building. And that two miles from that, there’s an island that Oprah [Winfrey] owns a house on that you can’t even drive to, they put they s**t on a ferry boat and go home. Since the year 1985, $5 billion dollars in cash went through our banks, the n***as aint get it. They aint even wanna give us all our food stamps!”
Magic City: Trials Of A Native Son is due in stores later this year.
