Lupe Fiasco Set To Write First Novel

Posted: 02/24/2010 04:35 PM EST

Rihanna and Soulja Boy aren’t the only ones penning books this year. Atlantic Records’ Lupe Fiasco is gearing up to release the first tome of his career which will revolve around a window washer.

The Grammy Award-winning rapper explained to 3News New Zeleand that penning a fiction novel derives from telling stories as a child. “I started as a writer, since I was little kid,” Lupe said. “I've been telling stories and Hip-Hop has been an extension of me telling stories so it's kind of like me putting it in a more traditional form as far as a book.”

Interestingly enough, besides releasing an LP, Lupe is using his book to guide his creative energy in the right direction. “There are other ways besides putting out an album that allow me to channel my creative energy and I'm writing a book about a window washer,” Lupe revealed.

A release date and title for Lupe’s fictional piece have yet to be determined.
