Robert Greene’s 1998 book The 48 Laws of Power has been referenced in songs by Jay-Z, Kanye West, and Drake, and now Drake, along with his co-manager Adel “Future The prince” Nur, will executive produce a series based on the book. Drake will also direct one of the episodes.
The series, which will air on Quibi, a mobile video streaming service launching on April 6th, will break down each of the 48 laws in a separate episode. The laws include: Never outshine the master, Conceal your intentions, and Always say less than necessary.
“When Drake and I sat down with Robert Greene, it was incredibly inspiring,” Drake’s co-manager and executive producer Adel “Future” Nur told Billboard. “The laws allow for a wide range of dynamic storytelling, and Quibi allows us to tell these stories in bite-sized chapters similar to the book.” (from HipHopDX)
