Default GZA's book "Advance Knight"??

I just found this over at amazon.com, I didn't know at all that GZA had written a book thats soon to be released (i like the cover as well). It doesn't say what it's about though, anybody got a clue?

GZA, James Reitano - Advance Knight

hmm... Interesting. He said a while ago that he was writing some graphic novels and screenplays and stuff, I can only assume its one of those. I haven't heard anything about this specifically though.

My guess is Wu-Tang Manual 11 times.

The fact he read only 11 books is sad.

lol i dont really read books, more magazines, newspapers articles etc. but the books i read were holes, catcher in the rye, lord of the flies, like 3 of the harry potters, and some other novels i can't remember not that im dumb or nething, ive been on the honor roll every year, 1st class twice, it's just im not really interested with too many books unless they're praised by teachers or i really like the concept after reading the back.

P.S. its probably not 11 counting the books from like kindergarten and stuff probably more like 50 lol but maybe 11 novels

To be fair, when GZA writes a book most people in the world aren't gonna care. I dunno who Grand Central Publishing are, but they're unlikely to spend a fortune on publicising this as most people that will buy it will hear about it eventually in some way or another through the net like everyone on here has.

Most people that bought Wu-Tang cds and made Wu famous wanna hear a few Wu song, they don't wanna buy a Wu book. They probably figure they'll release it low key save on marketing and make a profit from sales to all the Wu obsessives that would buy used toilet paper if Bobby wiped his arse on it.

Wu just aren't really very commercially viable anymore, and no one is gonna put up the cash to even massively promote a Wu album, let alone a single members attempt at a book. Only mass marketing I see are for books/albums etc that are gonna get onto chart lists and make a fortune.

They could do a better job of getting stuff out there yes, but don't be expecting posters on the side of buses.

That said, I'm looking forward to it as I believe GZA is capable of extending his creativity beyond rap.
