“I knew this was something I had to do, so I went ahead and did it.” Thus did Malice, the currently non-Kanye-affiliated half of SOTC-beloved rap duo Clipse, explain his decision to write Wretched, Pitiful, Poor, Blind, and Naked, a somber autobiography tracing the coke-rap kingpin’s highs, lows, and newfound embrace of Christianity. (Read our own J. Pablo’s full interview with him here.) This is all profoundly abnormal as far as rapper-penned memoirs go, as Malice will be glad to explain to you in person, at an “official book signing” event scheduled Friday afternoon from 3 to 6 p.m. at Vinnies Styles in Bushwick. DJ Boof and Mo’ Brown will also be in attendance, if those names mean anything to you. You can buy the book online right here in the meantime; he’s been promoting it via a series of revealing videos, the strangest (and most Vaseline-based) of which you will find below.
