Book of Weezy? Lil Wayne to Pen Prison Memoir


From the Apostle Paul to Antonio Gramsci to Martin Luther King Jr., prison letters have guided many of our culture's profound spiritual and intellectual currents. But, this November, we are set to see the release of a cell-all the likes of which Western culture has never seen. According to Media Bistro, Lil Wayne is set to release Gone Till November, a memoir drawn from a diary the N.O. native kept on Rikers Island. Wait, does that mean his blog?

 

"The journals he kept while incarcerated form an internal monologue, detailing his thoughts and feelings, the strange people he met, his plans, his family, his children, his past, present, and future," says a press release, according to Media Bistro. For those keeping score at home, the book will not be released on Cash Money's newly formed publishing imprint.
