It’s safe to say that this year has been pretty lit for Gucci Mane. From new music, high profile collaborations, album releases, and a new clothing line, Gucci is back like he’s never left! Not only are fans getting to know Gucci more since his release, he is giving fans a closer look into his triumphs and defeats with a memoir, confirmed by publishing company Simon & Shuster.
The memoir, which does not have an official title or release date yet, is set to spill the beans on the rapper’s life including his high profile incarceration. In a statement to The Fader , a rep for Simon & Schuster confirmed the deal with lots of joy stating “Simon & Schuster is thrilled to publish Gucci’s story in his own words,” the rep for Simon & Schuster said. “Gucci Mane is one of the most influential and revered hip hop artists in the world. His impact on American music is profound. This will be a major memoir revealing the life and times of the artist and man, chronicling his youth, ascent to the top of the Atlanta trap scene, incarceration, struggles with addiction and personal rebirth.”
No word yet on Gucci’s financial compensation for his book deal so let’s just assume it’s going to be pretty huge. Gucci also set to release his second album Wotopber with features from Travis Scott, Rick Ross and Young Dolph. His video “Bling Blaww Burr” dropped late last week featuring Young Dolph.
Not sure what to expect from Gucci’s memoir, but surely enough it will definitely leave a lasting footprint for his fans to see who the real Gucci Mane is after all.
