Whether you're a fan, stan or just an all-around lover of music, the appreciation of an artist goes deeper than just listening to their songs. Documentaries are one way to go behind the music, but there's nothing like hearing (or reading, rather) words from the artist themselves. And since we're spending a lot more time at home these days, it's a great time to catch up on the literary pursuits of some modern-day icons.
Lenny Kravitz takes fans on an introspective journey of how he discovered his (inner) voice with Let Love Rule; similarly, Mariah Carey peels back the layers and offers a candid retrospective with The Meaning Of Mariah Carey. Both can now add "New York Times Bestselling Author" to their list of accolades. Meanwhile, Gucci Mane (a previous NYTBA) plays the role of mentor/life coach with his second book, The Gucci Mane Guide To Greatness. If memoirs and self-help guides aren't your thing, wax philosophical with Marcus J. Moore's The Butterfly Effect: How Kendrick Lamar Ignited The Soul Of Black America. – B. Cakes
