C-Murder, the younger brother of Master P and uncle of Lil' Romeo, continues his success in the literary world. Today he announced that he signed R&B Superstar Akon to a book deal through his publishing company, TRU Publishing. Akon's new book will be called "Thug Politics" and will be the second release from C-Murder's publishing company. The first was Jacki-O's "Grown and Gangsta", which debuted in stores last month.
