After years of rumors, Lil Wayne’s long-awaited memoir Gone ‘Til November appeared on a variety of book-retailer websites today. Although there doesn’t seem to be a confirmed cover yet, the memoir will see the light of day this October. (Now, I’m no marketing genius, but if I were releasing a book called Gone ‘Til November — the title refers to the month Weezy was released from prison in 2010 — wouldn’t I probably want to actually release the book in November?) According to Penguin, the 176-page memoir is “a deeply personal and revealing account of his time spent incarcerated on Rikers Island for eight months in 2010.”
Our first glimpse of the book came early last year when TMZ obtained a proposal that Weezy was sending to various publishers, which revealed that Drake had visited Weezy in prison, his sole intention being to admit that he had slept with Weezy’s girlfriend less than 24 hours prior to his visit. Check out an excerpt from the proposal below.
This is the type of shit that a man never wants to find out when he’s locked up. Or, maybe so, cause only God knows what I would have done if I wasn’t locked up right now… I woke up feeling fucked up about the fucked up day that I had … finding out that she fucked Drake was the absolute worst thing I could’ve ever found out. As a man, honestly, that shit hurt … and not because it was Drake, it could have been any man. It would’ve hurt the same.
UPDATE: Here’s the cover…
