Middle of the pack4 star

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.45


Yes, this is what I needed5 star

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.55
