Marketed for children ages 3 to 7, “C is for Country” is “perfect for music lovers learning their ABCs,” according to the publisher.

The story takes readers on a journey with Nas X and Panini the pony as they travel through the country for a day learning the alphabet.

The book is available for pre-order now.

“Old Town Road,” Nas X’s debut single, garnered more than a dozen awards, including an American Music Award, two BET Hip Hop Awards, two MTV Video Music Awards and two Grammy Awards.

Said to have established a new country-rap genre, Nas X brings his “signature genre-blending style” to his new book, Penguin Random House said.
