“If a man does not have the sauce, then he is lost. But the same man can be lost in the sauce.” So spoke Gucci Mane, the great philosopher of our time. I’ve let the tenets and creeds of Gucci Mane navigate me through my entire young adult life. When he opines that it is “the sauce” that I should both pursue and avoid, strive for and veer away from, I see in myself reflected a battle between two parts that equal a greater whole. The sauce should be respected, feared, but, at the same time, appreciated, and even celebrated.
