Celebrity memoirs are not uncommon. Most of the narratives have talked about people’s life behind closed doors and illustrated who they actually are instead of who the media has painted them to be. Artists like Rick Ross, Gucci Mane, Jay-Z, and countless others have had books published about their lives– now, another rapper is joining the list.
Boosie Badazz, one of the hottest rappers from Louisiana, has been through countless trials and tribulations in his life. From beating a murder charge, to serving years behind bars, and also being a cancer survivor, the 39-year-old has plenty of life experiences to share. That’s why his story will be told through his upcoming book, Cross The Tracks: A Memoir.

The back of the book’s cover read a quote from the rapper. “My mother tried her best to keep me away from the drug game. But she has to understand: you can’t walk the devil into church and ask him to pray.
