Teriyaki Joe: Neo-Harlem Detective is an Afro-Futurist novel that will be written entirely on Twitter,” he explained. “… It will run for the next couple of months with breaks in between for album promotion etc.”

The first chapter, titled “Grits,” opens with a graphic scene, a quick flash-forward, and a description of Neo-Harlem as “That slow burn, then that inferno.” The second chapter is called “Coffee,” the third, “Gravy.”
