“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.
