"If you're a fan of the hit show Empire and its characters Cookie, Lucious, Hakeem, Jamal, and Andre, then you have to check out Terrance Dean's provocative memoir Hiding in Hip Hop. Dean writes a compelling story about black gay men in Hip Hop and Hollywood, and what it takes for them to make it the entertainment industry." - JL King, New York Times bestselling author of On The Down Low

Celebrated blogger and former MTV insider Terrance Dean reveals a hidden side of Hollywood and hip hop in this explosive and illuminating memoir.

Terrance Dean worked his way up for more than ten years in the entertainment industry from intern to executive, and has lived the life of glitz and bling along with Hollywood and Hip Hop's most glamorous heavy hitters. As a gay man immersed within the world of the famous and the fabulous, Dean knows well the industry's secrets and the facade that is kept, that for men, promotes machismo and hetero-normative behavior.

Most of what Dean unveils in this book is fascinating and salacious but all of it is true. He also shares his own secrets, and an account of the pain of his mother's addiction, and the poverty and molestation he experienced as a child.

Hiding in Hip Hop is not a traditional tell-all. It's personal. It's poignant. It's a provocative and honest look at stardom and sexuality.
