At the age of 40, Gucci Mane has had a long and successful career in the music industry. The rapper has over 20 albums and mixtapes in his personal repertoire and boasts nearly 14 million followers on Instagram. He is one of the most feared personalities in the hip-hop scene and is always controversial. But he captivates fans around the globe and has chronicled his life into a fresh biography.
Off the back of his 2017 New York Times best-selling autobiography, The Autobiography of Gucci Mane (which was partly written in prison), the platinum-selling artist is back for a second book. Set to drop into stores from next month, The Gucci Mane Guide to Greatness teasers have been making the rounds on the internet.
Written by the man himself, the synopsis reads: From the platinum selling recording artist and New York Times bestselling author of The Autobiography of Gucci Mane comes THE GUCCI MANE GUIDE TO GREATNESS – an unprecedented look at Gucci Mane’s secrets to success, health, wealth and self-improvement.
“I live by the principles in this book. I wanted to write this book to give you a tool set,” says Mane of the forthcoming book. “This book should touch people who are going through something. It’s not going to be easy. But study these words, and put them into action. I want this book to keep you motivated. I want you to keep coming back to it for guidance and inspiration. You can put it on your shelf and keep going to TheGucci Mane Guide to Greatness. This book is a challenge. Don’t underestimate yourself. Don’t think that what you’re saying is not important. Don’t think you can’t achieve the impossible. Everyone needs some game, so here it is.”
As reported by the New York Post, it is teeming with life advice and career hacks to further better yourself. Our favourite as teased by the publication is:
“Life isn’t about one moment. It’s about a series of them. Do your best to make the most of those moments so you’re prepared for the next one,” Mane writes. “Don’t be the person who says, ‘Damn, we could have won the Super Bowl if we didn’t throw that interception’ … Man. You had three hours to win that game. It wasn’t one play.”
The Gucci Mane Guide to Greatness is available for pre-order wherever you get your books with shipping from November 18, 2020.
