You read his memoir ‘Hiding in Hip Hop‘ and now author Terrence Dean is back with a new novel ‘Mogul.’
After the sudden death of his father, a renowned jazz musician, Aaron “Big A.T.” Tremble clings to music as an escape. Making hip hop beats becomes his life. His love for music lands him at the estate of Larry “Pop” Singleton, a retired and respected Hip Hop music mogul who sees something special in Big A.T., and he also knows the truth about his sexuality. With Pop’s blessings and nurturing, Big A.T. is on the path to becoming the next great Hip Hop producer in New York.
With the help of Pop and “the family,” a network of secretly gay men in the Hip Hop world, Big A.T. finds success and starts his own music label. He’s signed and worked with some of the biggest Hip Hop artists in the country. One of them is Brooklyn native lyricist, “Tickman.” Together they are making sweet music together. Tickman and Big A.T.’s relationship goes beyond producer and rapper – they become secret lovers.
Seems like a good read and the book is only $10 at Amazon. In the interview above Terrence made a reference that once you get the gays and the girls, then comes the rest of the world. He even referenced big artists that have made it big by embracing the gays. I’m definitely looking forward to getting this book and reading it. Join me!
