While some authors consider creating a New York Times bestselling book a huge accomplishment, Malcolm Gladwell just received some news that may be even greater than a spot on the famed list: Gucci Mane is a fan of his of his literary work. After a fan tweeted out a picture of the trap-star holding Gladwell’s 2013 book David and Goliath, the author beamed with excitement over his newest fan.
“Gucci Mane, ladies and gentlemen. This might be the greatest thing that has ever happened to me” Gladwell quoted on the tweet of Gucci Mane holding his book. The “Guwop” rhymer tweeted back to Gladwell saying that he’s read the books Blink, Outliers and The Tipping Point — which was also the title of The Roots 2004 album — before ending the tweet with a statement Gladwell will remember forever. “You my favorite author.”
