Songs For "Crap Kingdom:" A Young Adult Novel By DC Pierson

In recent years, it’s become en vogue for authors of young adult fiction to release official “playlists” for their books. Comedian, actor, writer and filmmaker D.C. Pierson has done Stephenie Meyer one better with his latest literary opus Crap Kingdom, enlisting some of his favorite artists to craft original music inspired by the novel. On Special, Jean Grae‘s contribution to the project, the NYC underground veteran taps into a powerful vein of adolescent ambition and self-doubt, flowing over a mesmerizing synth backdrop by Nellie Oleson. Songs For “Crap Kingdom” is freely streamable via Soundcloud, and readers can click here to purchase the book via Amazon.
