The party starter, Uncle Luke, paid us a visit on Sway in the Morning and brought his new book with him, The Book of Luke: My Fight For Truth, Justice and Liberty City.

While in-studio he opened up about the bankruptcy he went through and explained why he filed for it even though he wasn’t broke — which all stemmed from legal issues with other musicians. One that made it’s way all the way to Supreme Court was the famous case between him and Michael Jackson.

Watch above as he breaks it down, along with and explanation as to why HE was the first to invent and use the Parental Advisory sticker.
