Lil Wayne to publish prison memoir in November
New Orleans rapper Lil Wayne will publish a firsthand account of his eight-month prison stint for a gun possession charge, the "New York Times" reports.
On Thursday, Grand Central Publishing, a division of Hachette Book Group, announced that it will release "Gone Till November" on November 28. The book will compile the diaries of Lil Wayne -- born Dwayne Carter Jr. -- kept while locked up in New York's Rikers Island prison in 2010.
"He kept detailed journals of his inner and outer life while he was on Rikers Island and they certainly tell a story,” Ben Greenberg, the executive editor at Grand Central, said in the announcement.
Lil Wayne's most recent album, "Tha Carter IV," was released last year and has sold just under a million copies. It is up for Best Rap Album at the 2012 Grammy Awards.
