Rapper Gucci Mane 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 -- the murder charge, years behind bars, addiction, career highs and lows -- the making of the Trap God. It is one of the greatest comeback stories in the history of music. -- Adapted from book jacket.

Born Radric Delantic Davis in small town Alabama, the rapper known as Gucci Mane tells his exclusive life story. You'll hear about his drug selling, his run ins with the law (the book opens with him stockpiling weapons in a recording studio), his beefs (Jeezy, Waka), and his rise in the rap game. He's certainly had an interesting life, but the book is indifferently written, and his reflections on his trails and travails don't rise above platitudes. I did learn what lean is (cough syrup and soda) and that he once spent $75, 000 on a gold Bart Simpson chain. It's not exactly "Decoded," but it's a quick read.

Gucci Mane’s autobiography is a fascinating insight into the mind of one of trap music’s most interesting characters. He details his life, from his early poverty and family troubles, to his legal problems, to his eventual rehabilitation and new life outlook; and his life story is as exciting and inspiring as anyone else's has been. The description of prison, and the injustices he faced during his experiences with the legal system, were particularly eye-opening. Gucci Mane is a surprisingly strong author, having actually written this book himself rather than dictating it to a more experienced writer, as many authors of autobiographies do. I liked this one a lot overall, I would recommend especially it to anyone with an interest in rap music, but it functions very well otherwise, just as a story of a man's life; 3/5.

I was LOVING this autobiography until it ended so abruptly! I was looking forward to hearing how Gucci changed after his last stint in jail, but that was not included. It makes sense, this book was wrapped up a while ago and he's only been out of jail for a little over a year. But the ending felt like it was slapped together just to end the crazy story. This DOES NOT take away from the insanity that was the rest of the book! I still highly recommend Gucci's tale of his iced out, trapped out life.
