Drop That Zero and get a Hero Sofia Vergara

Sources say the Modern Family star called off her wedding with boyfriend Nick Loeb in front of friends and family .

Miley Breaks Down Over Liam Hemsworth During Performance?

Miss Miley reportedly burst into tears while performing her hit single Wrecking Ball over the weekend at the iHeart  Radio Music Festival in Las Vegas. With tears running down her face, she ran offstage and into the arms of her mother.

But whats the reason? Yes, she’s probably broken up about the ending of her engagement to Liam Hemsworth (last week,) but those could have been tears of joy as well. I mean, Wrecking Ball is the No.1 on Billboard Hot 100. If that doesn’t take her mind off Liam, nothing will.

Styles P: Urban Griot

styles p press shot

For years now Styles P (aka The Ghost) has blessed rhyme lovers with his vivid flows and verses. In his latest mixtape the “Ghost Dub Dime,” his street-wise lyrics continue his saga of taking listeners on a gritty journey through the life of a man who is only human.

His last album “A Gangsta and a Gentleman” ( released in 2002,)  made it to the #2 slot on Hip Hop charts and included the club and radio banger turned classic anthem “Good Times (I Get High.”) And now his latest mixtape accomplishment delivers razor sharp lyrics via grimy emotions of swag, dirty deals and street survival, while the Queens/Yonkers native delivers gangsta, yet refreshing hood tales on “Ghost Dub Dime.”

“I am staying in tune with the streets and providing bars that most rappers won’t,” enforces Styles P, one-third of the chart-topping and cult following rap group The LOX.

Styles Peniro (born David Styles) has always thought of himself to be “the hardest MC in the game.” And now he enforces the statement more than ever as he welcomes us into his new world of hood tales and adds the title of “Author” to his hustle palette. With a fresh book deal under Random House and help from author Nikki Turner,  his first novel “Invincible” is now on stores shelves and is only the first of many fiction street tales to come from the urban griot.

“It’s another hustle for me,” he recently told MTv. 

In addition, the soundtrack to “Invincible” is just as explosive as its accompanying novel. With appearances from fellow LOX members Sheek Louch, Jadakiss , newcomer Tyler Woods,  and other LOX fam, gutter jewels of the soundtrack include the first single “That Street Life” (which illustrates Styles’ signature street vigor,) the explosive “One Way or Another” (with a classic 8 bars from 2 Pac’s “Holla if ya Hear me” as the hook,) “Got A Problem” ft. Tre Williams (with a head nodding string rhythm,) and the sincere “I in Win,” where Styles and fam Snype Life, A.P. and Do-Dirt vow to stay true to the code of the streets: loyalty first.

There are so many classic verses and mixtapes under your belt. Has your message and delivery changed since your last mixtape Phantom Empire?

I always switch it up. My style paints a picture. It just depends on the day and what my mood is; and what’s going on.

The first single That Street Life, seems like it may be very personal to you? Is that accurate?

Yeah.   I’m just talking about the real things, some personal issues, and the industry. It’s about my swag and being fly. It’s all from a street point of view.

Ok, so let’s talk about your first novel entitled Invincible. Now, you’re claiming a whole new venture. You’re a fiction writer now!

Yeah, Invincible is the first book in the series. It’s available in Barnes & Noble stores. I wrote the book with a little help. It’s all me. 

It takes an enormous amount of discipline and dedication to write a book. Wouldn’t you agree?

Yeah, but I always wanted to be a writer (of books.) …I’m a creative person… Being a rapper takes a lot of time and it’s difficult at times, especially along with being a father and other [responsibilities.] But, I set my mind to it.  If you wanna get around to everything that you want to accomplish in life, you just gotta get busy. I’m fortunate that it’s happening (my deal with Random House.)

So, what is the novel Invincible about? Coming from you, I know the storyline has got to be ill.

Well, I’ll just say this.  It’s about a good, solid dude trying to live the right life. He gets robbed and ends up in prison and while there, he gets a mystery letter from someone who wants to kill him. I can’t tell you much without giving it away.

How is the art of storytelling with rhymes different from telling a story through novel/book form? Is it harder than expressing an idea in 16 bars?

It’s much more difficult to write a novel. Because, when you’re rhyming, it’s in your head. I definitely respect authors (of books) more, now that I’ve done it.

Well, if the novel is as explosive as the soundtrack, readers are in for the dope sh*t. (laughs)

Yeah, it’s crazy. Got Sheek Louch, (Jada) Kiss, Tyler Woods. It’s 14 tracks and it reads like a book.

Wow, I can’t wait. And we also can’t wait to hear what’s next from you. Will there be another solo album from Styles P?

Yeah, but that will come later. . .I’m proud to be operating as an independent where I have total control of my project…We’re working on the LOX joint now, the new album.

You mean the most anticipated hip hop album of the year? (laughs)

Yeah, and we [Sheek and Jada] all feel real good about that.

Invincible: The Book and full-length soundtrack by Styles P are available exclusively at Stylesp.net and Barnesandnoble.com.  Ghost Dub Dime the mixtape is available at e1music.us.
