‘The Autobiography of Gucci Mane’, a book on the life of the rapper, is set to be made into a biopic. Brian Grazer and Erica Huggins will reportedly produce the project by teaming up with Paramount Pictures. The studio has retained the life rights to Mane, whose given name is Radric Delantic Davis, as well as the movie rights to the book. The Atlanta artist, who made his studio album debut in 2005 with ‘Trap House’, has released 12 studio albums and 72 mixtapes. The book tracked his struggles with addiction, his feuds with fellow artists and his ultimate road towards redemption. Beginning in 2014, Mane spent nearly three years in prison after pleading guilty to possession of a firearm by a convicted felon. He then began releasing dozen of mixtapes from prison with the help of his then-girlfriend. After being released, Mane received his first No. 1 single on the Billboard Hot 100 in 2016.
