Publisher's Summary

The highly anticipated memoir from Gucci Mane, "one of hip-hop's most prolific and admired artists" (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 rap music. He inspired and mentored a new generation of artists and producers: Migos, Young Thug, Nicki Minaj, Zaytoven, Mike Will Made-It, Metro Boomin.

Loved it

I was never a fan of gucci... Never understood him... Never really cared. But after reading this book, it gave me an insight on who and what to he is behind the cameras. I'm not a fan of his music but I'm definitely a fan of the man.

Great solidification for the return of Gucci Mane

The story was well organized and flowed effortlessly. The reader was very good, but I could tell some street phrases fell flat to him at times. It only took away but a fraction of the story and immersion. Glad Gucci is back.

Loooooove looooooove loooooove

Now I need another book in about ten years. Documenting his bounce back and success after his bid. This was phenomenal. I've always been a gucci fan. Literally felt him thru his music. This book gave me the inside perspective. He's a real man! And he deserves longevity in everything he does.

Surprisingly Good

I'm a fan of Gucci Mane, and a lot of the stories I knew from the music. This made me even more of a fan because there are no inconsistencies from his raps to the book. Great listen

A Humbling Story

What did you love best about The Autobiography of Gucci Mane?

I Love How This Book Gets On What The Media Has Put Out For Example There's A Video On Youtube Where It Shows Gucci Speak To The Press After His Release From Prison You Actually Hear What Was Going Threw His Mind In this Situation Plus There's More Situations The Media Do Not Know About Or Havent Spoken About That Makes This Book As Good As A Stephen King Novel

Who was your favorite character and why?

prologue <br/>I like how it shows us the point of view of the trap god

What about Guy Lockard’s performance did you like?

His Voice And Emphasis On Words

If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

Trap Gods And Company

Any additional comments?

I Am A Recording Artist by the name 1017Kdawg This Mans Story Is The Most motivation everyone says artist like Gucci Mane should "Give Back" This Is The Best Way To Give Back To The world this let me know no matter where u are from what type of background you come from you are capable of change

An inspirational story about truly inspirational change. This autobio has helped me understand some of my own mishaps. But more importantly how I may control the direction my world spins. Thank you Gucci! Stay the course.
