NEW YORK (AP) — After interviewing Hillary Clinton, Kanye West and Jay Z, among others, Charlamagne Tha God is ready for something really challenging: writing a book.

The ever-raw television personality and co-host of the syndicated radio show “The Breakfast Club” has a deal with Simon & Schuster imprint Touchstone for “Black Privilege: Opportunity Comes to Those Who Create It.” The book is scheduled for next spring, the publisher told The Associated Press on Tuesday.

With “brutally honest insights,” Charlamagne plans to recount his rise from a dirt road in Moncks Corner, South Carolina, to national fame through radio and MTV.

Charlamagne said in a statement that as an English teacher’s son he had always loved books and working a book himself was a “dream fulfilled.”
