Published Jun 29, 2016Four years after first being announced, Lil Wayne's long-awaited memoirs on his time in prison are finally being released. Gone 'Til November: A Journal of Rikers Island is set to hit store shelves October 11 through Penguin Books.
The official due date has been confirmed through a listing on the publisher's website. A cover image has yet to be revealed, but the initial run of Gone 'Til November is a 176-page hardcover book collecting various diary entries. Weezy's self-penned tome is described as "a deeply personal and revealing account of his time spent incarcerated on Rikers Island for eight months in 2010."
As previously reported, Lil Wayne's prison stint was tied to a 2007 police bust in which New York authorities found a .40 calibre pistol on Weezy's person. The rapper pleaded guilty to attempted criminal possession of a weapon in 2009 and was sentenced to one year at New York's Riker Island prison facility.
While a dental surgery stalled the sentence, he was in Rikers from March to November 2010. A couple months into the sentence, Weezy was busted for contraband when he tried to smuggle in an MP3 player and headphones. He had apparently hid them in "an aluminum potato chip bag, in a garbage can."
