Jay-Z‘s entertainment agency Roc Nation has now announced a book publishing partnership with Penguin Random house. The new venture with the renowned publisher will be under a new imprint called “Roc Lit 101” and feature “books at the dynamic intersection of entertainment and genre-defying literature.”
Reports go on to note that Lil Uzi Vert will be writing a fantasy fiction book and Meek Mill is releasing a book on “criminal justice and survival.” Additionally, Yo Gotti and Fat Joe will be coming together for a memoir series that will include a chronicle of retired MLB star CC Sabathia called Till the End and a look at Black women in music called Shine Bright by music journalist Danyel Smith. Helmed by Random House imprint One World publisher and Editor-in-Chief, Chris Jackson, other releases from Roc Lit 101 are expected to come in the form of cookbooks and children’s stories.
