Legendary Wu-Tang Clan member Ghostface Killah has revealed that he will release a new memoir titled Rise Of A Killah: My Life In The Wu-Tang. The recent announcement stated that the book will be on shelves worldwide by next year.
The memoir’s publisher, Macmillan Publishers, has revealed that the book is already available for pre-order in various formats, including hardcover, e-book, and digital audio.
In a description posed by the publisher on their website, Rise Of A Killah: My Life In The Wu-Tang will give readers “both a visual record and a real-feel narrative of a performer’s life”.
The memoir will seemingly explore the rapper’s childhood in Staten Island and detail how his rough upbringing and tenuous relationships with family and friends led him to become part of the Wu-Tang Clan. It will also seemingly delve into how crime and violence have affected the MC’s life.
Rise Of A Killah: My Life In The Wu-Tang is only the latest memoir to come out of the Wu-Tang camp. In 2021, Raekwon released From Staircase to Stage: The Story of Raekwon and the Wu-Tang Clan, while U-God released Raw: My Journey Into the Wu-Tang Clan in 2018.
This year, the Clan celebrated the 20th anniversary of their debut album, Enter The Wu-Tang (36 Chambers). Earlier this year, they also revealed the steel chamber accompanying their group book, Legacy. The exclusive text was printed and bound in Italy and is encased in a striking bronze-encrusted black steel chamber. It costs $360,000 (£298,872) and there are only 36 in the world.
Wu-Tang has been the topic of much discussion this year, with rock legend Bob Dylan recently revealing he is a Wu-Tang Clan fan. You can read more about Killah’s memoir below.
