Rick Ross has announced a new book, as Entertainment Weekly notes. Ross’ memoir is called Hurricanes and it comes out September 3 (via Hannover Square Press). Ross wrote Hurricanes in collaboration with Neil Martinez-Belkin, who co-wrote The Autobiography of Gucci Mane. A press release states:
In Hurricanes, Ross moves beyond the headlines, opening up about the experiences that inform his creative process. His upbringing in Carol City. His past as both a drug dealer and correctional officer. His scuffles in the streets and in the industry. The seizures. The drive-by shootings. The 2015 arrest on kidnapping and assault charges. It is a remarkable story of not only surviving the storms of life but reaching the highest levels of achievement in spite of them.
Rick Ross added in a statement: “My story has always been deeper than rap…. With this book I wanted to go deeper than I ever have. I wanted to tell people about the life of William Leonard Roberts.”
