Last year, Gucci Mane revealed he’d be dropping his autobiography in 2017. Now, we’ve gotten the first look at the cover for The Autobiography of Gucci Mane.
Guwop threw up the book cover on Twitter and let the world know, “I’m an author now.” The book was co-written with Neil Martinez-Belkin, an alumni of XXL, and is set to be released on Sept. 19. You can pre-order the book on Amazon right now.
The book is set to be a memoir of the East Atlanta rapper’s life, and in a statement last year, the book’s publisher Simon & Schuster spoke about why they’re excited to put it out. “Simon & Schuster is thrilled to publish Gucci’s story in his own words,” a spokesperson for the publisher said in a statement. “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.”
Gucci began writing the book while in prison, and Amazon’s description gives us some insight into what the book will cover, as it “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.”
