After a long career where he proved to be indisputably one of the best rappers of all time, Black Thought is exploring a new medium to tell stories in.
It has been announced via Variety that on November 14th, the rapper will put out his memoir, called The Upcycled Self.
In the book, “Trotter explores the vital questions we all have to confront about our formative years: How can we see the story of our young lives clearly? How do we use that story to understand who we’ve become? How do we forgive the people who loved and hurt us? How do we rediscover and honor our first dreams? And finally, what do we take forward, what do we pass on, what do we leave behind? This is the beautifully bluesy story of a boy genius’s coming of age that illuminates the redemptive power of the upcycle,” which it defines as “to recycle (something) in such a way that the resulting product is of a higher value than the original item,” and “to create an object of greater value from (a discarded object of lesser value).”
