The Legendary Anita Baker Is Honored With a Lifetime Achievement Award
Taking his entrepreneurial status to even further heights, Kevin Hart is set to add "author" to his growing list of titles as he is gearing up to release a memoir detailing his struggles and motivations.
According to Page Six, the Ride Along star, in collaboration with Atria Publishing Group, is writing the memoir about his experiences growing up and his early failures as a comedian which eventually led to his now A-list career.
Titled From the Hart, the book is set for a 2017 release by Atria's imprint 37 Ink.
In a statement, in true form, the comedian joked that through he constantly tells his kids he's a big deal every day, he'll now "have a book out to prove it."
This will just be another major venture for Kevin Hart to add to his extensive résumé. In addition to his prolific comedy career, he has become a bona fide movie star, having starred in blockbuster hits like Ride Along, Get Hard, The Wedding Ringer, Think Like a Man and more.
