I damn near highlighted all of the text in this book of poetry. Only thing left unmarked would've been the art. It is about love, growth, healing and roots. The format is five chapters: wilting, falling, rooting, rising and blooming. How appropriate!

Even if you don't listen to trap music or never heard of Gucci Mane, read this autobiography! At the very least, it will open your eyes to the struggles of a music artist, a young black man, a drug addict, paranoia and loyalty to a trusted few. This is one of the few autobiographies that I read nonstop. It is written so readers can really see Gucci Mane's transformation to a better, healthier and happier life. Now THAT's real icy!
