Lil Wayne jail memoir, ‘Gone ‘Til November,’ receives October release date

NEW YORK, July 1 (UPI) — Lil Wayne‘s long-awaited memoir written during his time spent in jail from 2010 finally has an official release date.

Gone ‘Til November: A Journal of Rikers Island will be hitting book shelves on October 11 publisher Plume, an imprint of the Penguin Group announced Thursday.

Originally the memoir was announced and set for release in 2012 through Grand Central Publishing, a division of Hachette Book Group.

Penguin noted to the New York Times that the 176-page book was “taken directly from Wayne’s own journal” and will “reveal the true story of what happened while he was at Rikers Island, exploring everything from his daily rituals to his interactions with other inmates to how he was able to keep himself motivated and grateful.”

Wayne, real name Dwayne Michael Carter Jr., was originally sentenced to one year at Rikers but was released after serving eight months on a gun possession charge.

The 33-year-old rapper had a health scare in June when he was hospitalized after suffering two epileptic seizures on his private jet. The music mogul has said previously that he’s epileptic and has suffered seizures since childhood.
