Jesse Washington, former editor of Blaze magazine and current entertainment editor at Associated Press, has written a fictionalized account of his days in hip hop. Black Will Shoot follows Marc Wise from his first interview at Fever magazine to a gunblazing finale tangentially involving Lil Jon. For real. The plot is drawn directly from Washington's life, but dude was smart enough to change the names of the shooters lest he become a target again. It gets its release on February 5th via Simon & Schuster and will surely be on every rapper's Spring reading list.
