Eminem and publishing house Orion Books are set to release a new book featuring never before seen photos, journal notes, hand drawn illustrations and lyrics from the rapper. Em will also be penning the book’s introduction and contributing his own narrative throughout. According to NME.com, the book will be called The Way I Am and is set for a October 16 release. “Because of where he is from, people think they know where he is at, what kind of person he really is,” said Orion’s Ian Pierce. “This book cuts through all that and gets to the source. It has an edge. It'll be one of the books of the year.” Several unauthorized books have already been published about the controversial MC, but this project will be the first to have Em’s blessing.
