"It's too much. For the book, I was interviewed, people close to me were interviewed, so I was learning a lot of things I didn't know as a child," The Daily Star quoted the singer, as saying. He added: "It's not anything I haven't said in the past, in songs. It''s just more detailed... You can say exactly how everything went."
He also admits that the book has given him a fresh view of his father, who left the family when the rapper-to-be was only 11. "It was still wrong... that he left, but he did stick around at a time when it wasn't cool or popular. He married my mom at a time when guys were just leaving, and you'd never even meet your dad," he told Rolling Stone mag. "So it (book) made me ease up a little bit in how I felt about him."
