Gucci Mane: My Biopic Will Be As Big As N.W.A.’s ‘Straight Outta Compton’

The ‘Woptober II’ creator also mentions the cult classics ‘Purple Rain’ and ‘Krush Groove.’

(AllHipHop News) In 2017, Radric “Gucci Mane” Davis released The Autobiography of Gucci Mane with Hip Hop journalist Neil Martinez-Belkin. The Atlanta legend could be turning stories from that book into a movie.

Gucci recently FaceTimed Zane Lowe to discuss his new song “Bucking The System” featuring Kevin Gates. The conversation for Apple Music’s Beats 1 also included Guwop giving an update on his pending biopic.

“To be honest man, it’s been an ongoing process trying to get the script first,” explained the Woptober II creator. “This movie’s real personal to me, but we got it down now. It’s finna be crazy.”

Gucci added, “It’s going to be huge. It’s going to be perfect. It’s going to be just as big as any movie you feel like you are super passionate about, like N.W.A.’s Straight Outta Compton or something like that. Or even Purple Rain or Krush Groove.”

When asked if he will be playing himself in the film, Gucci Mane (Birds of a Feather, Spring Breakers) expressed interest in taking on the main role. He also let it be known that if someone else is cast as Radric Davis, that actor has to be more handsome than the real person.
