Could the hip-hop industry be on the verge of being turned upside down over a scandalous new book?
Looks likes its about to happen.
Nearly two years ago a rumor that a new book talking about the DL gay sub culture in hip-hop was going to be hitting book store by a former MTV executive, Terrence Dean. I remember the story as if it were yesterday. Many people took it as just another salacious story and it wasnâ€™t really picked up on, but Iâ€™ll be damned the book is in fact completed and will hit stores on May 13th, 2008.
Here is a snippet of the press release via Loldarian.com
"Hiding In Hip-Hop" uncovers a hidden and well-known unspoken secret. Deep within the confines of Hip-Hop is a prominent gay sub-culture. A world that industry insiders are keenly aware of, but choose to ignore.
According to Dean, "This book is filled with intrigue, sexy celebrity bed partners, abundance of drugs, and of course, the down low/gay men and celebrities in the entertainment industry.[Source]
I donâ€™t know about you, but this is my kind of book. Ladies let's hope it turns everybody's "?" into "!". You know Iâ€™m going to have my copy on the date of its release. And you know I will keep you posted.
**Update ** Yes people it just got better. Charlamagne over that "The Wendy Williams Experience" just alerted me that Terrence will be on their show May 13th the same day the book drops. Wow, I wonder what he's going to say. You know I'm going to have that MP3 for you the minute I get my hands on it.
