Gucci Mane Details Upcoming Autobiography: 'I'm an Author Now'

He's got another reason to smile.

Published March 20, 2017

It is almost impossible not to break a smile when reading about Gucci Mane's continuous glo-up.

Ever since getting out of prison this past summer, the rapper has been setting out and going after every goal, which most recently also included penning his own autobiography.

While Guwop announced the book last year, he now has kept his word and gave fans an exciting new update.

Taking to Twitter this afternoon (March 20), the rapper shared what is the official cover for the forthcoming book, stating matter-of-factly, "I'm an author now."

Simply amazing.

As reported, Gucci began writing the book while he was serving jail time. He then linked with co-writer Neil Martinez-Belkin and voila, the memoir is set to be released later this year on September 19.

"Simon & Schuster is thrilled to publish Gucci’s story in his own words," a spokesperson for the publisher previously shared 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."

According to the book's description on Amazon, the book will "take 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.”

Sounds like it's going to make for an incredible read. Take a look at the official cover in the tweet below and pre-order the book on Amazon here.
