Gucci grew up in the small town of Bessemer, Alabama and the crime infected streets of East Atlanta. He quickly explored and understood the realities of poverty in America at a young age.

The autobiography does not glorify Gucci, rather it is in the vein of a cautionary tale about drugs and violence and how it affects normal people’s lives.
