Lil Wayne Prison Memoir Hitting Bookstores in November
Lil Wayne has inked a deal with Grand Central Publishing to publish a book titled ‘Gone Till November.’ The tome is described as a prison memoir of the rapper’s thoughts that he jotted down while serving his eight-month prison bid at Rikers Island for weapons possession.
According to the Hollywood Reporter, the book is due to hit stores on Nov. 28, roughly two years after Weezy was released from prison. “We are thrilled to be publishing Wayne’s prison memoir,” said Ben Greenberg, executive editor at Grand Central Publishing. “He kept detailed journals of his inner and outer life while he was on Rikers Island, and they certainly tell a story. They are revealing.”
Greenberg adds that the diaries reveal his thoughts in addition to his plans for his family and future. In an interview with GQ magazine, Wayne explained that he saw his time in prison as therapeutic. “So it just helped me on my way, helped me with life,” he explained. “Cleared me up, cleaned me up, opened my eyes to things. I definitely thank God for that moment instead of looking at it as a problem or a bad situation. I needed it.”
We think this is a great book idea from Wayne. Hopefully, his memoir will deter young people from entering the criminal system. Prison is no fun, y’all.
