‘The Autobiography of Gucci Mane’ Is Coming This Fall

During an interview with Gucci Mane conducted by none other than “fancy bitch” (Gucci’s words) Marilyn Manson that was published last month in CR Men’s Book, the East Atlanta Santa told the idiosyncratic rock star how writing his autobiography helped him through his prison stint. “When I was locked up and they put me in the hole, this is what I was doing to keep my sanity,” he said. “This is how I was protecting myself.”

The product of that writing now has an actual cover and release date, with publisher Simon & Schuster announcing that The Autobiography of Gucci Mane will be in book stores on September 19.

“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,” the renowned publishing house writes in its press material. “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 a dope read.
