Lil Wayne To Publish His Prison Memoir “Gone Till November”

13 Jan

Lil Wayne has signed a deal to publish a prison memoir called Gone Till November. The book will be drawn from notes the rapper made while serving an eight-month sentence at Rikers Island on a weapons possession charge. 

The book, to be published by Grand Central Publishing, is repped by Matthew Guma, who also served as Jay-Z‘s literary agent for the rapper’s best-selling book Decoded. According to a press release, Lil Wayne’s prison journals will detail “his thoughts and feelings, strange people he met, his plans, his family, his children, his past, present and future.”

Lil Wayne has written about his sports interests for ESPN the Magazine, and he recently announced the launch of a new skateboarding clothing line. The rapper’s most recent album, Tha Carter IV, debuted last year at Number One on the Billboard album chart with just under one million copies sold in its first week of release.
