Well, it was only a matter of time before this happened. This month Lil Wayne rolled out his first clothing line Trukfit, and before the year ends the New Orleans native will release his first memoir, “Gone Till November.” The book will give fans an in-depth look at the eight months Weezy spent behind bars at New York’s Rikers Island complex for a gun possession charge.
The memoir is scheduled to hit bookstores in November, which will mark two years since Weezy became a free man. According to AP, it will share Wayne’s “internal monologue,” transcribed from the journal entries he wrote while incarcerated. “Gone Till November” will be released via Grand Central Publishing, under the umbrella of Hachette Book Group.
Wayne was released from Rikers Island on November 4, 2010 after serving eight months of a year-long sentence for attempted gun possession. The rapper and his crew were leaving his first headlining performance in NYC back in July 2007 when policed pulled over his tour bus. The NYPD searched the bus after reporting a strong odor of marijuana, and they eventually confiscated drugs and a gun registered in Wayne’s manager’s name.
After his release Wayne dropped his anticipated album Tha Carter IV which went on to sell more than 850, 000 copies in its first week, going platinum shortly afterwards.
