Lupe Fiasco is writing a novel. On Twitter. He's calling it Teriyaki Joe: Neo Harlem Detective.

The rapper is calling the project an "Afro-Futurist novel that will be written entirely on twitter" and "published in chapters." Sounds exciting. HotNewHipHop.com cobbled together all of his tweets so far and posted a transcript of the first chapter, called "Grits":

Two more smacks should do it. She's weak. A couple more properly placed palms across the cheeks and she'll be all his. She'll make good money for him too. Thick-legged, creole, tall...yeah she's a real winner. I give her two months. I give him three. Two months before she wises up and figures out she'll be here forever and three months before she puts a knife in his chest for it. That's Neo-Harlem for you. That slow burn then that inferno. And you either wood or fire...aint no water just Gin to keep it goin.
