Another clip and a breakdown on Aliya S. King after the jump.
Author Aliya S King came by â€œThe Morning Afterâ€ and gave us some juicy behind-the-scenes stories from the journalism world. If you donâ€™t know who she is, sheâ€™s the woman who co-authored Faith Evanâ€™s â€œKeep the Faithâ€ and Frank Lucasâ€™ memoirs â€œOriginal Gangster,â€ and is working on Tashera Simmonsâ€™ book, as well as Timbalandâ€™s memoirs. In addition, she has a proposal out to Mashonda so maybe youâ€™ll be reading that whole saga soon!
Right now though, Aliya has her fictional novel â€œPlatinumâ€ in stores, with the sequel already scheduled to drop August 11, 2011. â€œPlatinumâ€ was an idea she came up with after writing an article for Vibe Magazine entitled â€œThe Secret Lives of Rappers Wives,â€ where she researched and interviewed the wives of rappers, including Ja Rule, Wyclef, Snoop, and DMX. You have to read this book and see if you can figure out who the characters are based on!
Aliya discusses how difficult it was to work with Frank Lucas and how much she loves Faith Evans. She talks about a situation with Eve when she first started at The Source 10 years ago where they almost had an altercation and had to be held back from each other.
Aliya also gave some insight into what DMXâ€™s wife, Tasheraâ€™s book will be about. Apparently he has several kids outside of his marriage and currently has a 1 and 2 year old in Miami.
