Meek Mill brings his Philly hip-hopera Tony Story to paperback and e-book on on May 1. The MMG rapper has unveiled the book’s cover (see above.)

Tony Story, his first book, follows best friends Tony and Ty on the hard streets of Philly, who are torn apart by money, envy and greed. According to the book’s summary, “After a deadly shooting, the streets of Philly were in an uproar and the lives of many people revolved around revenge. Gold digger Kee capitalized on the built-up tension; but before she could really enjoy the fruits of her labor, she was thrust into the middle of a street war with the cost being her life.

Trust was not an option and revenge was the only thing anyone had in common. Paulie wanted revenge for his cousin; LB wanted revenge for his brother. They both had blood in their eyes and murder in mind; names were called while gunners lurked in the shadows. It became bigger than the almighty dollar and no one was safe. Philly won’t be the same after you’re a witness to Tony Story.”
