In his recent interview with GQ, the Atlanta rapper revealed that he'll be once again collaborating with Harmony Korine on the director's upcoming film, The Trap. Gucci and Korine previously worked together on 2012's Spring Breakers.
In discussion of why he and Korine are collaborating again, Guwop credits Korine's creativity as the key. "[Korine is] super creative [...] Me and him work good together because we just freestyle shit, both of us don’t have no rigid mind state when we bring something to life. I love to act. It was just a great experience being in Spring Breakers, and it was just the beginning." Gucci is also planning on releasing a movie that he's producing and acting in called The Spot at the end of 2016.
In addition to film, the GQ profile also revealed that Gucci Mane recently struck a book deal with Simon & Schuster. In the publishing house's official statement made to The FADER, the book is going to be a memoir about Gucci's life.
"Gucci Mane is one of the most influential and revered hip hop artists in the world," said the statement to The FADER from Simon & Schuster. "His impact on American music is profound. This will be a major memoir revealing the life and times of the artist and man, chronicling his youth, ascent to the top of the Atlanta trap scene, incarceration, struggles with addiction and personal rebirth."
Harmony Korine's The Trap—which should arrive sometime in 2017—will also star Benicio del Toro, Al Pacino, and James Franco. His memoir has yet to receive a release date.
