The LOX’s Styles P has opened up about his upcoming fiction novel, Mr. Invincible, and promised the release would be “action packed.”
Aiming for a June 1st release date, Styles said his book will feature a climatic ending.
“I never really took the time out to give it a shot, it’s just something I always wanted to do. I got a love for books and reading. Actually, what happened, I was getting on the plane and I forgot my book but I wanted to read so I decided to give it a shot, did a few pages, ended up messing with Random house. Action packed mystery very climactic ending, dramatic, basically that’s it. Just sometimes you got to chase your dreams or they chase you.” (Hip Hop Wired)
Last summer, the rapper said he was aiming for a fall 2009 book release.
“I also got a fiction book coming out,” Styles confirmed in an interview. “A fiction novel called Mr. Invincible. That’ll be in a couple months, so go support that. I’m getting my author up. I just wanted to make sure I’m comfortable and got a few things I could do that I enjoy doing. I’m a creative person and I like creating. So I just wanted another job where I could create and make some money and doing something that I like to do.” (Forbez DVD)
Styles received support from an editing team.
The book, which Styles describes as a “jail mystery,” is the D-Block rapper’s first foray into the literary world. “I got a fiction book called Mr. Invincible coming out Nicki Turner Presents,” Styles revealed to XXL. “It’s just a fiction joint. It’s a little story.” When asked if he had any help putting the work together Styles replied, “They got a little editing team, but all the writing is me, all the idea is me, all the thought is me.

Earlier this year, Styles opened up about wanting to branch out his D-Block brand.
“I got a book coming though, Mr. Invincible, a fiction joint coming out, through Nicki Turner Presents and Random House,” Styles told radio personality Mr. Peter Parker. “We’re trying to expand, also we got a couple straight-to-DVD films D-Block is trying to put out. Phantom Gangster Chronicles, we got part one and about to put out part two and three so we’re just trying to expand the brand. I need another occupation, man. You can’t rap forever. We got young D-Block, I’m still in the [rap] game but eventually I gotta pass the baton but eventually I’ll be out of the relay. It’ll be all on them and I can just spot check when I want to. I think a lot of rappers and emcees forget to pass the torch and open the door for other people. So when I do do that and I’m not playing the whole game, I wanna do something where I ‘can’ play the whole game — around six, seven more years so I can relax and do the whole book thing…” (Mr. Peter Parker)
