Remember when Lil Wayne was locked up in Rikers Island? If not, we don’t blame you, because his eight month sentence started more than six years ago.
Fans who are too young to remember reading Weezy’s letters on his blog and hearing the details of his stay in one of New York’s most infamous prisons will be intrigued to know his long-awaited prison memoirs are finally being released this fall.
After originally being announced way back in 2012, Gone ‘Til November now has a firm release date of October 11th via Penguin publishing. The 176-page memoir is said to be ‘deeply personal’ and provide a ‘revealing account of his time spent incarcerated.’ Seeing as Weezy is so vivid with his pen, it will be interesting to how confinement changed the way he depicted his surroundings. After all, how many ways can you spin two hots and a cot?
However the publisher package his writings, let’s hope they convey something positive about the rap icon and aren’t pushing dated material just to grab a quick buck off his namesake.
