Al Sharpton Joins The Cash Money Army With New Book Deal

06.28.13 4 years ago 3 Comments

Al Sharpton’s now a soldier on Cash Money’s burgeoning payroll.

The well-known Civil Rights activist’s new book, The Reject Stone, is slated to release on Oct. 8 via Cash Money’s publishing arm. The book will track Sharpton’s “personal evolution” from New York street activist to political candidate and civil rights spokesman.

Sharpton told The Associated Press on Thursday that the book would include his thoughts on Lil Wayne and other rappers and that he was anxious to have a positive dialogue. For those short on memory, the reverend and Lil Wayne sparred in 2008 over the use of the b-word and n-word in the rapper’s lyrics and Weezy ceremoniously referred to Sharpton as Don King with a perm. Sharpton explained to the AP that “Just because we disagree doesn’t mean we have to be disagreeable.”

In 2010, Cash Money launched Cash Money Content with a publishing partnership with the Atria Books imprint of Simon & Schuster.

Odds are we’ll probably be writing a headline in the future regarding Sharpton suing Cash Money.
