Ghostface Killah will tell the story of his life and career in a new memoir, NME reports.

St. Martin’s will publish the rapper’s Rise of a Killah next year. The press describes the book as “rich with both story and imagery” and “a real-feel narrative of a performer’s life.”

Ghostface Killah was raised in Staten Island, New York, and formed the Wu-Tang Clan with a group of fellow rappers, including RZA, Ol’ Dirty Bastard, Method Man, and Raekwon, in 1992. They released their first album, Enter the Wu-Tang (36 Chambers), the following year; it is now considered a pioneering hip-hop classic.

Ghostface released his first solo album, Ironman, in 1996; a dozen more followed, including, most recently, Ghostface Killahs in 2019. He has also appeared in several movies as himself, including Fade to Black and Walk Hard: The Dewey Cox Story.

His book, St. Martin’s says, “is intense rather than comprehensive, looking back at his childhood in Staten Island, his commitment to his family (including a brother with muscular dystrophy) and lifelong sidekicks, how crime and violence have affected his life, his fellow Wu-Tang members, a formative touring trip to Japan in 1997, and his art.”

Rise of a Killah is slated for publication on May 14, 2024.
