Tracy Morgan on the "Boogie-Down"

We like Tracy Morgan so much we want to take him behind a middle school and ... well... lets just say we were pret-ty excited when his new autobiography, "I Am the New Black," came out recently.

Just like his Tracy Jordan character on 30 Rock, the real-life comedian ain't afraid to be controversial. In the book Morgan rails against his former Saturday Night Live costars Cheri Oteri and Chris Kattan, but also talks seriously about tough situations that helped develop his personality, like growing up in New York housing projects, his estrangement from his mother and life with his heroin-addicted father.

Watch our video interview with Morgan after the jump.

We grabbed a few minutes with Morgan to find out what he remembers about his childhood homes in Brooklyn and the "boogie-down" Bronx and what he's carried with him from those days.
