Bards of Hollygrove


In news sure to surprise anyone who's ever heard the range of elocution in one of their songs, Cash Money Records is set to open a publishing arm. Label founders  Birdman and Slim inked a deal with a Simon & Schuster subsidiary, adding to an increasingly diversified portfolio that also includes an oil company. The imprint will initially offer such titles as "Raw Law: An Urban Guide to Criminal Justice," the novel "Justify My Thug," and the late, irate Iceberg Slim's memoir, "Pimp." If only Weezy had a little more time in prison. He could've signed up for National Novel Writing Month.
