Questlove is diving into the book publishing world once more. The legendary Roots drummer has inked a new deal to pen another personal story.

Publisher’s Marketplace reports that Quest, born Ahmir Thompson, will debut a work of nonfiction. Grand Central Publishing will serve as publisher.

The new tome is a follow-up to Mr. Thompson’s critically-acclaimed memoir ‘Mo Meta Blues: The World According to Questlove,’ released in June 2013. Ben Greeman, who served as the author for that book, will also pen the forthcoming project.
