“Today I celebrate a remarkable milestone achieved by my husband, @jeezy, whose memoir ‘Adversity For Sale’ has soared to the New York Times bestsellers list,” Mai also said of the memoir. "Your story has always been an inspiration to me, but seeing it in print has left me even more in awe of your strength and wisdom. You invited us into the most intimate corners of your life, where pain and triumph coexist. This moment isn’t just a testament to your literary skills baby, but a recognition of your ability to inspire through the power of storytelling."

Jeezy also discussed his memoir in an August interview with PEOPLE, revealing that his goal was to inspire others. "I was depressed, my mental health was off," he explained. "And I went on the journey, and I’m still on the journey. Today, I can say that I’m honestly in a better place."
