"I had a strong desire to write 'Playground' because I wanted to explore how a kid becomes a bully," the hip-hop star said in a statement. "I drew on events from my own childhood and adolescence, but was excited to see the story take on its own life. This book would have been very helpful for me growing up and now that I have a teenage son, it is my goal that this will have a positive influence on all teenagers."

The rapper's released his first book, the autobiographical 'From Pieces to Weight,' in 2005, which went on to become a New York Times Bestseller. What do you think of 50's upcoming 'Playground' novel? Do you think you'll read it?
