On Sunday, Bobby Shmurda shared some insight with his Instagram followers about his latest project, an autobiography, which he recalls made him shed a tear or two while involved in the writing process.

“Yo, I was writing a chapter in my book yesterday, and I cried. Like I dropped a tear. And I don’t even cry. I don’t even cry like that. And I found myself dropping a tear, and I said, ‘Damn, I ain’t write in so long,'” the “Hot N***a” artist said in his caption.

“It was like doing a journal, like a diary-type s**t,” he added. “And I said, This book is gonna be so f**king good. The time I dropped a tear,” he continued.

The memoir based on the Brooklyn artist is written in a “journal” style detailing the significant events of his life. Shmurda announced his “masterpiece” on Instagram after sealing a book contract in June with UTA Publishing.

“Work work work @utapublishing it is a pleasure off to the races we are,” he wrote in June. “We’re now embarking on a #incredible #impactful #motivational #passionate #authentic story and journey that is still evolving sustainably.”

“This will be my 1st autobiography. For all my fans and supporters, that’s been a1 since day 1 you guys are an inspiration. I can’t wait for you to receive and read this masterpiece you’ll be motivated like mf this will be one of the best stories told in history #GoingforNumber1selling,” he added.

It’s been refreshing to see the “Shmoney” rapper pick up where he left off following his 2021 prison release.
