Rapper Lil Wayne served a one year prison sentence after being convicted of gun possession charges back in 2010 and was scheduled to release a book about the stint as far back as January 2012.
Well the book, Gone ‘Til November: A Journal of Rikers Island now has a release date for November by Grand Central Publishing. The book features his own writing from his diary that he wrote while locked up.
A Penguin Books rep told the New York Times, the book was “taken directly from Wayne’s own journal” without the use of a co-writer (unlike that of other recent authors aka Stacey Dash). While away, Weezy kept up with his fans through his “Weezy Thanx You” site.
“I wake up around 11 a.m.,” Wayne wrote in one post. “Have some coffee. Call my kids, and my wonderful mother. I then shower up. Read fan mail. Have lunch. Back on the phone. Read a book or write some thoughts down. Have dinner. Phone. Pushups. Then I listen to ESPN on the radio. Read the Bible, then sleep. That’s my day”. The book, out October the 11th “reveals the true story of what happened while he was at Rikers Island, exploring everything from his daily rituals to his interactions with other inmates to how he was able to keep himself motivated and grateful”.
