WoW: Let me Hear a Rhyme by Tiffany D. Jackson

This bookish meme tells the blogosphere what we're waiting patiently (and sometimes not so patiently) for! It's hosted by Jill over at Breaking the Spine!

Let Me Hear a Rhyme

     In the next striking and vibrant standalone novel by the critically acclaimed author of Allegedly and Monday’s Not Coming, Tiffany D. Jackson tells the story of three Brooklyn teens who plot to turn their murdered friend into a major rap star by pretending he is still alive.
     Biggie Smalls was right. Things done changed. But that doesn’t mean that Quadir and Jarrell are okay letting their best friend Steph’s tracks lie forgotten in his bedroom after he’s killed—not when his beats could turn any Bed-Stuy corner into a celebration, not after years of having each other’s backs.
     Enlisting the help of Steph’s younger sister, Jasmine, Quadir and Jarrell come up with a plan to promote Steph’s music under a new rap name: The Architect. Soon, everyone in Brooklyn is dancing to Steph’s voice. But then his mixtape catches the attention of a hotheaded music rep and—with just hours on the clock—the trio must race to prove Steph’s talent from beyond the grave.
     Now, as the pressure—and danger—of keeping their secret grows, Quadir, Jarrell, and Jasmine are forced to confront the truth about what happened to Steph. Only each has something to hide. And with everything riding on Steph’s fame, together they need to decide what they stand for before they lose everything they’ve worked so hard to hold on to—including each other.

Why I'm Waiting: There is no ONE reason why I want this book. There's MANY. The cover is super DOPE and I love all the covers associated with it. The author is one of my faves and she always has a super weird twist at the end, and I'm thinking (more like hoping) this one is the same. And, there is a Biggie Smalls name drop and I am HERE FOR IT. I got Pac from Angie Thomas and now I get Big here?! YASSSSS! And I have so many questions about this book already! Like where did she get the idea from? What was her playlist like for this book? Was there more Big? I need all the answers and I'm hoping the content has them! 

What are you waiting on this week? 
Will you be waiting on this with me?
