Typically prisoners who’ve been incarcerated for some time develop beautiful penmanship. Since Lil Wayne is the consummate businessman, he’s taken it a bit further and will actually pen a book based on his 8-month bid at the Rikers Island Correctional Facility in New York in 2010. Wayne’s book titled, “Gone Till November” will be available on November 28 on the Grand Central Publishing imprint of the Hachette Book Group.


Ben Greenberg, executive editor at Grand Central Publishing said in an interview with “The Hollywood Reporter;” ‘He kept detailed journals of his inner and outer life while he was on Rikers Island, and they certainly tell a story. They are revealing.’


Wayne’s journals detailed the type of people he met, how he felt while incarcerated, and thoughts about family and friends.


We can’t wait to take a peek at what’s inside Wayne’s book. If anything we hope this serves as a cautionary tail for young men on the wrong path.


Do you believe “Gone Til November” will be worth a read?
