Tracy Morgan opens up about his memoir, “I Am The New Black”

This is Tracy Morgan's week, and we're all just living in it. Earlier this week, he hosted the VH1 Hip Honors for Def Jam Records in his native borough of Brooklyn. Tonight is the debut of the fourth season of NBC's 30 Rock, and it's also a few days before the release of Morgan's memoir, I Am The New Black. Gawker got its hands on an ad-lib reading from Morgan for the audiobook, in which he riffed his own revenge upon former SNL colleagues Chris Kattan and Cheri Oteri.

Time magazine just did its own "10 Questions" with Tracy Morgan, which you can watch. Watch!

It makes you wonder if Morgan is entertaining only when he's "crazy." Is that true? Watch this excerpt of Morgan talking about his book, and you'll see what I mean.

You can read the introduction to Tracy Morgan's I Am The New Black, too. Want to order a copy? The book comes out Oct. 20:
