Description

The highly anticipated memoir from Gucci Mane, “one of hip-hop’s most prolific and admired artists” (The New York Times).

For the first time Gucci Mane tells his story in his own words. It is the captivating life of an artist who forged an unlikely path to stardom and personal rebirth. Gucci Mane began writing his memoir in a maximum-security federal prison. Released in 2016, he emerged radically transformed. He was sober, smiling, focused, and positive—a far cry from the Gucci Mane of years past.

Born in rural Bessemer, Alabama, Radric Delantic Davis became Gucci Mane in East Atlanta, where the rap scene is as vibrant as the dope game. His name was made as a drug dealer first, rapper second. His influential mixtapes and street anthems pioneered the sound of trap music. He inspired and mentored a new generation of artists and producers: Migos, Young Thug, Nicki Minaj, Zaytoven, Mike Will Made-It, Metro Boomin.

Yet every success was followed by setback. Too often, his erratic behavior threatened to end it all. Incarceration, violence, rap beefs, drug addiction. But Gucci Mane has changed, and he’s decided to tell his story.

In his extraordinary autobiography, the legend takes us to his roots in Alabama, the streets of East Atlanta, the trap house, and the studio where he found his voice as a peerless rapper. He reflects on his inimitable career and in the process confronts his dark past—years behind bars, the murder charge, drug addiction, career highs and lows—the making of a trap god. It is one of the greatest comeback stories in the history of music.

The Autobiography of Gucci Mane is a blunt and candid account—an instant classic.

    Lookin at Gucci's childhood pixures one sees the spark and openness of a sweet kid. That kid is still here!! Honestly I was introduced to Gucci Mane by his dangerous reputation. I just returned from my first visit to Atlanta and felt urged to read about Sgucc for a deeper read on this strange city. Blessings to this man on his amazing triumph of beating the odds of addiction. I know everyday is a struggle but he inspires me to be my best self everyday through his trials and triumphz. Hope to make a beat for this dude one day. 🔥🎼

    Gucci Mane doesn't make excuses for his actions and owns up to what he has done to hurt those and how he turned his negative situations and landing in prison for 3 years to a life changing positive situation. Most inspiring book I've read in a while
