READ: Prologue of Meek Mill’s debut novel ‘Tony Story’ leaked online
Philly phenom Meek Mill, who’s already taken the rap world by storm with the release of studio debut “Dreams and Nightmares,” is now working on another first – a novel.
Mill has set a May 1 release date for “Tony Story,” which he penned along with the help of publishers G Street Chronicles.
Set in Philadelphia, the novel tells of two friends whose relationship is torn apart as they become involved in the drug trade.
“Tony and Ty had big dreams of getting rich,” a synopsis reads. “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.”
