Lupe Fiasco Starts Penning His 'Afro-Futurist' Novel On Twitter

Lupe Fiasco's already up to his next big project. Forget penning the lyrics to a new song; Fiasco's busy penning a novel… via his Twitter. The Chi-town rapper announced via his private Twitter account that he's started tweeting an "Afro-Futurist novel that will be written entirely on twitter" to "be published in chapters." The working title is "Teriyaki Joe: Neo Harlem Detective."

Grab your reading glasses and get started on chapter one, which has been tweeted out over the last several days:

"Chapter One: Grits

Two more smacks should do it. She's weak. A couple more properly placed palms across the cheeks and she'll be all his. She'll make good money for him too. Thick-legged, creole, tall...yeah she's a real winner. I give her two months. I give him three. Two months before she wises up and figures out she'll be here forever and three months before she puts a knife in his chest for it. That's Neo-Harlem for you. That slow burn then that inferno. And you either wood or fire...aint no water just Gin to keep it goin.

Two slick punks gambling they heart out next to the scene. Couple cops shaking down some junky next to that. That's the view from the office. .45 on the desk. Digital cigar burning. Sun-Ra coming out the speakers. Antique Rick Ross poster on the wall. Man I miss hip-hop. Damn shame. Mental telephone on vibrate. Mostly getting lost dog calls these days. 10 million worth of Units in the wall safe. Nano-Eames couch for now.

Could really use some pussy. Real pussy not that robotic Kevlar jellyfish these ladies walking around with today. Fake pussy fake furniture. 'CHANEL VAGINAL IMPLANTS: Who Says Sex Can't Be Luxurious' 'Coach Vaginal Implants: The Next Level' 'NIKE Sport Implants: Just Do It'. The Sun-Ra reaches its crescendo just as I get a call worth answering. ---1 Million Units!!! Respond For Details--- Money first. I like that.

POW! POW! The cops shot the junky. Streets gonna be alive tonight. Real alive. I put on my jacket & head for the diner. I need some grits.

Join us next time for Chapter 2 of 'TERIYAKI JOE: NEO-HARLEM DETECTIVE' A WOLFStudio Production.

'Teriyaki Joe: Neo-Harlem Detective' is an Afro-Futurist novel that will be written entirely on twitter. It will be published in chapters."

Black Trans Woman Bee Love Slater Found Burned Alive In Florida

Over the weekend, the body of Bee Love Slater, a 23-year-old transgender woman was found burned beyond recognition inside a car. According to reports, Slater is the 18th trans woman to be killed this year.

Hendry County investigators said as of now the investigation into Slater's death is ongoing. They cannot title it a hate crime until a clear motive has been established, but Slater's best friend, Kenard Wade thinks the vicious manner of her death is a clear sign.

"She had a really, really good heart," Wade told CBS Fort Myers affiliate Wink. "She would never harm anyone, never put anyone in harm's way. How could someone go to that extreme to get rid of her?"

Wade continued and said Slater received several death threats because she's trans and expressed a desire to leave the area for safety reasons.

Slater's death falls in line with an on-going trend of violence against trans women, particularly black trans women. The Human Rights Campaign states 18 trans women have been murdered in 2019, while 26 members of the trans community were killed in 2018 and 29 trans deaths were recorded in 2017.

CBS News reports that the week of Slater's death, Bailey Reeves, 17 transgender teen was shot and killed in Baltimore on Labor Day.

T.I. Grills Candace Owens On Trump's 'MAGA' Slogan At The Revolt Summit

T.I. had one pressing question for Candace Owens during the 2019 Revolt summit that Owens couldn't quite answer. The two-day conference held in Atlanta brought together music executives, activists, and entertainers to discuss hip-hop, it's power, the current climate of the genre and to network. However, with the 2020 presidential elections nearing politics were also a hot topic.

For Saturday's (Sept. 14) Hip Hop and Politics panel hosted by Jeff Johnson, T.I. asked the conservative commentator to explain Donald Trump's campaign slogan. "When you say Make America Great Again, which period are we talking about?" Tip questioned. "[Is it] the period when women couldn't vote? The period when we were hanging from trees? The crack era? Which period in America are you trying to make great again."

The 30-year-old Connecticut native said: "I actually think that I would totally rock a hat right now that says Make Black America Great Again," which prompted T.I. to interject and restate the original question.

"Which period was America great that we're trying to replicate? Which era was it? Tell me." T.I. questioned. With an excited audience, Owens' attempt to explain Trump's slogan didn't go so well.

Watch the clip below.
