NEW YORK -- The Rev. Al Sharpton is working on a book to be co-released this fall by the publishing arm of Cash Money Records, home to Lil Wayne, with whom Sharpton has feuded over some of the rapper's lyrics.
Sharpton's "The Rejected Stone" is scheduled for release Oct. 8. The book will be published by Cash Money Content and Massenburg Media, in partnership with the Simon & Schuster imprint Atria. The book will track Sharpton's "personal evolution" from New York street activist to political candidate and civil rights spokesman.
Sharpton told The Associated Press on Thursday that the book would include his thoughts on Lil Wayne and other rappers and that he was anxious to have a positive dialogue.
He added: "Just because we disagree doesn't mean we have to be disagreeable."
