The New York Times bestselling memoir from the legendary Gucci Mane spares no detail in this "cautionary tale that ends in triumph" (GQ). For the first time Gucci Mane tells his extraordinary story in his own words. It is "as wild, unpredictable, and fascinating as the man himself" (Complex). The platinum-selling recording artist began writing his remarkable autobiography in a federal maximum security prison. Released in 2016, he emerged radically transformed. He was sober, smiling, focused, and positive-a far cry from the Gucci Mane of years past. A critically acclaimed classic, The Autobiography of Gucci Mane "provides incredible insight into one of the most influential rappers of the last decade, detailing a volatile and fascinating life...By the end, every reader will have a greater understanding of Gucci Mane, the man and the musician" (Pitchfork).

Mark Blake 1
R325 R270 Discovery Miles 2 700 Save R55 (17%) Within 4 - 8 working days

Bring it on Home is a celebration, a cautionary tale and a compelling human drama. Written with the full co-operation of the Grant family and with access to Grant's private correspondence, business contracts and photographs, this biography features interviews with the three surviving members of Led Zeppelin, and examines Grant's remarkably close (and some suggest unhealthy) relationship with Jimmy Page, his troubled relationship with Robert Plant and his great friendship with the late drummer John Bonham. Stories about how Grant intimidated the producers of The Song Remains the Same and the drug-related excess surrounding Swan Song Records and Grant's relationship with John Bindon and his extended coterie of Kings Road criminals are told with great candour, while the details of a plot to kidnap Led Zeppelin's band members' children by Jamaican gangsters are revealed for the first time. It also tells the dramatic and bleakly humorous family story of how Grant's estranged wife, and two children, Helen and Warren, dealt with this unusual and often tumultuous life. Warren Grant discusses, with unflinching honesty, an often-dangerous adolescence spent with a drug-addicted father, surrounded by groupies and dealers, in a house filled with shotguns. The narrative also features walk-on parts from Bob Dylan, Stanley Kubrick, Freddie Mercury, Elizabeth Taylor, Keith Moon, Elvis Presley, Elvis's father Vernon and Pope John XIII. As Warren Grant says now: 'My dad knew everyone'.

Making headlines when it was launched in 2015, Omise'eke Tinsley's undergraduate course "Beyonce Feminism, Rihanna Womanism" has inspired students from all walks of life. In Beyonce in Formation, Tinsley now takes her rich observations beyond the classroom, using the blockbuster album and video Lemonade as a soundtrack for vital new-millennium narratives. Woven with candid observations about her life as a feminist scholar of African studies and a cisgender femme married to a trans spouse, Tinsley's "Femme-onade" mixtape explores myriad facets of black women's sexuality and gender. Turning to Beyonce's "Don't Hurt Yourself," Tinsley assesses black feminist critiques of marriage and then considers the models of motherhood offered in "Daddy Lessons," interspersing these passages with memories from Tinsley's multiracial family history. Her chapters on nontraditional bonds culminate in a discussion of contemporary LGBT politics through the lens of the internet-breaking video "Formation," underscoring why Beyonce's black femme-inism isn't only for ciswomen. From pleasure politics and the struggle for black women's reproductive justice to the subtext of blues and country music traditions, the landscape in this tour is populated by activists and artists (including Loretta Lynn) and infused with vibrant interpretations of Queen Bey's provocative, peerless imagery and lyrics. In the tradition of Roxanne Gay's Bad Feminist and Jill Lepore's best-selling cultural histories, Beyonce in Formation is the work of a daring intellectual who is poised to spark a new conversation about freedom and identity in America.

For more than three decades, Madonna has been generating headlines and topping charts. Now J. Randy Taraborrelli has written the definitive biography of one of the richest and most successful pop stars in the world, whose music has constantly evolved and who has remained relevant even as she hits her sixtieth year. From the driven, ambitious young woman struggling to get a break in New York to the outrageous pop diva and more spiritual mother, the changing faces of Madonna are revealed. We see her relationships with men like Basquiat, Tupac, Prince and Warren Beatty, and what happened in her marriages to Sean Penn and Guy Ritchie. We see her embracing motherhood. And we see her today with five children, still recording and touring, finding happiness with much younger boyfriends, defiantly living life on her own terms. Madonna is based on decades of research and exclusive interviews with people speaking of her publicly for the first time - including friends, business associates and even family members. J. Randy Taraborrelli has also interviewed the star herself on numerous occasions and he draws on first-hand experiences to bring Madonna to life as not merely a sensational tabloid delight, but as a flesh-and-blood woman with human foibles and weaknesses, as well as great strengths and ambitions.

Guns N' Roses emerged from Los Angeles in the 1980s to become a global rock'n'roll phenomenon, selling in total more than 100 million albums. Three decades on, Guns N' Roses are once again headline news around the world - with the return of iconic guitarist Slash marking the end of his bitter 20-year feud with singer Axl Rose. When Guns N' Roses' debut album Appetite For Destruction was released in 1987, the band were so out of control that their record company stated: "They'll make it - if they live." And yet, somehow, they did. Appetite For Destruction became the biggest selling debut in the history of American music, and songs such as "Sweet Child O' Mine", "Welcome To The Jungle" and "Paradise City" became era-defining classics. Known as The Most Dangerous Band In The World, Guns N' Roses' success continued into the 1990s with the albums Use Your Illusion I and II, but by the end of that decade only singer Axl Rose remained from the original line up. This book follows the complete story of Guns N' Roses: the highs and lows, the triumphs and failures, the fights, the excess, and the great music that shook the world. Now, with Axl and Slash reunited - along with another member of the band's classic line-up, Duff McKagan - Guns N' Roses are set to make history once again with one of the biggest tours ever.
