Over a year ago, the rapper began writing down ideas for a book that would share his story of tragedy and triumph and that book, titled Fighter: Five Keys to Conquering Fear and Reaching Your Dreams, co-written with Shannon Constantine Logan, released this week. He talked about the book in a press release, saying, "I don't know about you, but I love books. I could point to different books in my library and tell you how they've changed my life. With music I only have a few minutes in a song to share my heart and sometimes even less after a show interacting with fans. So with the book 'Fighter,' I thought I could really give my fans more of me - to hear where I've come from, and how I've become a fighter." He continued, "Whether it's family, personal, or professional, it's been a fight," speaking of his book. "I've had the willingness to bear pain to get through all this, and I'm winning now. 'Fighter' was made to keep bringing a light to people; keep fighting."
Supported by fans through a fully-funded Pledge Music campaign, Greenwood donated five percent of the pledges to World Vision, an organization he regularly supports.
