Apparently, Gucci Mane had a fulfilling high school experience, because after announcing that his 20th reunion was coming up, he offered to fund the celebration.
“This year marks my 20th year from graduating high school in 1998,” he tweeted. “I want to personally invite anybody who graduated from #McNair aka McNasty aka #BouldercrestHigh to v103 car and bike show to go with me and also I want pay for our 20 yr reunion myself!”

Guwop reminisced about his high school days in his book, The Autobiography of Gucci Mane, where he recalled great academic success and says he was a hard working student. “I graduated from McNair in the spring of 1998 with a 3.0 GPA and a HOPE scholarship to Georgia Perimeter College,” he wrote.
Although he decided not to pursue his higher education immediately, he still had a plan in place. “I was doing pretty well for myself in the streets, so going back to school was the last thing on my mind,” Gucci said. “So I didn’t go. I think they call that a gap year.”
After a while, Gucci decided to enroll in Georgia Perimeter College, but his stay was short lived. He says he felt out of place there.
The Human Glacier may not have felt at home in college, but McNair High School has always shown their graduate love. Last year, the school’s Twitter page retweeted a post about Gucci’s book and celebrated his Billboard Music Awards nominations, writing: “We are so proud of our McNair High School Alumni!!”
Aside from a book, a Gucci Mane biopic is in the works, via a deal with Paramount Pictures and Imagine Entertainment.
He’s also working on his next solo album The Evil Genius and joint project with Migos and Lil Yachty called Glacier Boyz.
