Lil Wayne Details Life on Rikers Island
Lil Wayne's new book Gone ‘Til November: A Journal of Rikers Island is set to drop next month. As the name implies, the book details Weezy's stint on Rikers while he served a eight-month sentence in 2010 for gun charges.
In the book, Tune reveals some of the more interesting instances that happened, like performing a gay marriage ceremony for two other inmates. “Gatorade is liquid gold in this bitch . . . Imagine seeing grown-ass men in jail hanging tissue for wedding decorations. AND one of them is Lil Wayne. Crazy,” he wrote.
He also details an experience trying to get one of his girlfriends to visit him with no panties on. It didn't turn out as planned. “They have extensive-ass searches before you come in here, so they made her put on a pair of boxers because they knew she didn’t have on panties. Damn!,” he wrote.
While working on rhymes, he also had big dreams about the lavish life on the outside. “I always thought I needed things like being high with my niggas, a Bugatti, a dope-ass crib or some big-booty bitches to be creative. But once it was taken away from me, my creativity was put to the ultimate test,” he added.
During his incarceration, Wayne also learned that Drake smashed one of his ladies when Drizzy came to visit him. “Finding out that she [bleeped] Drake was the absolute worst thing I could have found ou," writes Wayne. :Drizzy came to see me, he was like, ‘Yeah, it’s true’. Damn! This is the type of [bleep] a man never wants to find out while he is locked up.” Clearly, the situation didn't mess up their relationship.
The handwritten read is slated to be available on Oct. 11.
