The New York Times bestselling memoir from the legendary Gucci Mane spares no detail in this “cautionary tale that ends in triumph” (GQ).

For the first time Gucci Mane tells his extraordinary story in his own words. It is “as wild, unpredictable, and fascinating as the man himself” (Complex).

The platinum-selling recording artist began writing his remarkable autobiography in a federal maximum security 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.

A critically acclaimed classic, The Autobiography of Gucci Mane “provides incredible insight into one of the most influential rappers of the last decade, detailing a volatile and fascinating life...By the end, every reader will have a greater understanding of Gucci Mane, the man and the musician” (Pitchfork).


  • Middle of the pack

    By dutch manchego
    Entertaining and slightly upstream of bearable provided you arrived as a proponent of the hip-hop/rap genre and/or lifestyle. If one does not already harbor an understanding and appreciation for this realm, consider finding another introduction. Although, if you happen to find yourself incarcerated, it is fairly easy to get a hold of. As a staple of the institutional library this becomes a must read for the bawdy photographs of the fairer sex.
  • Yes, this is what I needed

    Despite everything that Gucci Mane went through, he made it. I’ve always loved his music. I would just wait for something new to come out after I had memorized most of his raps. And before this book came out, I had a good idea of what he was feeling with each mixtape he dropped. But this book makes it that much clearer. It also makes it very clear to me that the media will report what’s interesting versus what really happened. Everyone in the media has a bias to think one way or the other. Whatever will get them trending is what most of them report, leaving out some very real facts just to make the story more appealing. I’m so glad I read this book. I highly recommend it for anyone who’s a fan of Gucci Mane. It won’t disappoint.

    Heck of a story, someone growing up with that life and coming out with that much heart baffles me. I hope this story impacts everyone who reads it.
