"I've always thought about writing a book," Guwop said. "I actually wanted to write a script. While he was in jail, my friend Harmony Korine [the director of 2013's Spring Breakers, Gucci starred in] was sending me books and tells me to write a script. Then, one day, my engineer told me that I should write a book. I wasn't even in jail yet. I was waiting to be sentenced. I was like, 'Well, I'm going to try".
"Then, one day, I wrote 30 pages. Then Neil [Martinez-Belkin, co-author of The Autobiography of Gucci Mane] I wrote in prison, and I remembered him from the time I interview for XXL," he continued. "He told me that I should write a book and left his number. We connected and I told him that I wrote 30 to 40 pages. I have sent mail to him, and he told me I was amazing and that I should send him more and I'm going to put in book form, what would come by the time that I have. That is how it came about. I went so far that he could not do anything more than go up. I couldn't do much, but I've had time to write, so why not do it?"
He added, "I'm 100 percent to write another book and I'm definitely going to write that script."
With the addition of a second book and a screenplay to contend with, Gucci's already packed schedule has him working overtime. The rapper upcoming eleventh studio album, Mr. Davis, is scheduled for release on the 13th of October.
Gucci also has his BET reality show, The M
