Ghostface Killah Releasing Autobiography In 2024

"Rise of a Killah: My Life in the Wu-Tang" will be released on May 14, 2024

If you haven’t gotten enough of the Wu-Tang Clan, an upcoming memoir will whet your appetite. According to the Macmillan Publishers website, Ghostface Killah, born Dennis David Coles, will release a book on St. Martin’s Press titled Rise of a Killah: My Life in the Wu-Tang next year.

The memoir, which will retail for $35, will also be available in an audio format. The scheduled release date is May 14, 2024.

The book is described as an autobiography that takes us back to his childhood in the Shaolin, as the popular supergroup calls their Staten Island hometown. He will talk about the trials and tribulations he faced growing up on the island as he and his fellow emcees took the world by storm at a time when hip-hop was making its metaphoric rise to the top of American culture.

According to the website, he writes about his family life and how crime and violence in his neighborhood contributed to his life, along with his brothers-in-rhyme. It also features his art and discusses “a formative touring trip to Japan in 1997.”

The recording artist and entrepreneur has just completed a tour with the group, along with Queens legend Nas and Long Island’s own De La Soul.

Last year, in May 2022, Ghostface returned to Staten Island to open a coffee shop, Killah Koffee Shop, in West Brighton, according to SI Live. The opening took place a year after Ghostface and his business partners, Ross Filler and Shawn Wigs, started selling their line of artisanal coffee online. If you can’t make it to Shaolin, order the coffee from the Killah Koffee website. The coffee is made with 100% Arabica beans that are considered reminiscent of the smooth, flamboyant style Ghostface has branded himself since the early 90s.

“Killah Koffee is made with 100% Arabica beans and is reminiscent of the smooth, flamboyant style one can only expect from Ghost,” reads the description of the beverage on the website. Flavors include Marble Cake, Supreme Dark Roast, Marvelous Medium Roast, or Vanilla Milkshake.
