Over the summer we started hearing rumors that Malice, half of the Clipse, was writing a nonfiction book about his life and the music industry called Wretched, Pitiful, Poor, Blind and Naked. Now he’s released this excerpt, above, which shows him dealing with self-doubt and depression, though it’s unclear exactly when this scene takes place.
Weirdly, it’s kind like a video that Kanye would make. Personally, I don’t see why more authors don’t make literary equivalents of music videos. Someone better tell Jonathan Franzen, stat.
Wretched, Pitiful, Poor, Blind and Naked is out early December. According to the Malice’s website, it will be soon followed by “an audio book and movie.”
