Gucci Mane Has Inked His First Book Deal news

Gucci Mane is having no trouble keeping busy. Since his release from prison earlier this year, the man has delivered new music, began designing a new clothing line, and has dedicated himself to a new, healthy lifestyle. And it appears he now has another project on his plate: his first memoir.

In a recent interview with GQ magazine, it was reported that the 36-year-old rapper had inked a book deal with publisher Simon & Schuster. Though there aren’t many details—such as the title or release date—at this time, a representative from the company confirmed the project to The Fader, and gave an idea of what fans could expect.

"Simon & Schuster is thrilled to publish Gucci’s story in his own words," the spokesperson for Simon & Schuster told The Fader. "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."

But that’s not all Gucci has in store. He also told GQ he’s gearing up to star in Harmony Korine’s upcoming film The Trap, alongside Al Pacino and Benicio Del Toro. Though there’s only three more months left in the year, there’s plenty of Gucci headed our way. His second album of the year, Woptober, is scheduled to drop next month; and he’s also set to release The Spot, a film he acted in as well as produced, before the end of 2016.
