Katt Williams is about to be in the news again, and this time it’s not up to him. This time a book was released from an insider who worked for Katt and traveled on the road with him, saw all of the drama, and most importantly took notes.
Comedian Darryl Littleton was the insider who worked with Katt for over a year, and he recently decided to publish a tell- all book that goes deep inside all of the ups and downs of being on the road with one of the greatest persons (in his prime) to ever touch a mic.
Anyway, here is the press release that we received this morning about the book;
This insider’s book candidly reveals what went wrong with one of the most meteoric careers in modern show business. The tantrums, drugs, groupies, lavish hotels, sexual exploits, booze, expensive cars, multiple suicide attempts, private jets, fans, celebrity worship, swanky homes, hanger-ons, feuds, jail time, court dates, gang hits, fat cigars and betrayal are all chronicled.
The expose’ also explores 21st Century fame and the alarming pattern of mental instability amongst our current celebrities. In 2008 Katt Williams had risen to become one of the most controversial, sought after entertainers in America solidifying such lofty hype with a $50 million grossing comedy tour followed up by a well-publicized meltdown, a brief stay in a mental facility and retirement.
How could it all go so wrong so fast? What happened to the crown pimp of comedy? Why does he act so crazy? Darryl Littleton, Williams’ former writer was there when it crumbled and picks up the pieces for us to examine. “Pimp Down: The Rise & Fall of Katt Williams” lays out step-by-step how Williams, the pimp, was undermined by his own trusted female camp.
Katt Williams is currently on a comeback tour. He’s assembled a new entourage and has displayed further erratic behavior. He’s in ACT II of his never boring career. “Pimp Down: The Rise & Fall of Katt Williams” shows us what destroyed ACT I and how the second act could be a mirror image. Available on Kindle, Kindle Apps and Amazon.com
