Rapper Meek Mill is adding author to his resume after unveiling plans for the release of his first book.

The Ima Boss hitmaker, real name Robert Williams, has penned the novel Tony Story, named after a track from his recent Dreamchasers mixtape, which follows the story of two friends who fall out over money and jealousy.

The book is due to hit retailers on 1 May (13).

Mill isn't the only hip-hop star to branch out into the literary world - T.I. penned his first work of fiction, Power & Beauty: A Love Story of Life on the Streets in 2011.
