Lil' Wayne is preparing to release his memoir, Gone 'Til November, which was penned during his time spent in Rikers Island prison. In 2010 the rapper served time incarcerated in the infamous penitentiary on gun charges.
During his time at Rikers Wayne claims to have officiated a gay wedding for two fellow inmates. Wayne writes that, after the ceremony, they decorated the hall with toilet paper and toasted with 13 bottles of Gatorade: "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."
The memoir shared other insights into prison life through the prism of Wayne's celebrity focus. He would watch "American Idol," to kill time, but would prefer to return to his cell rather than watch "The Wendy Williams Show,". Perhaps unsurprisingly Wayne confessed to missing sex, but early in his sentence female officers were suspended for coming to see him, leading him to write, "Maybe there will be some female groupies in this bitch after all."
During his prison term Wayne wrote and emerged with a new album. "I always thought I needed things like being high with my n*****, 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,"
Wayne also scribbled in his handwritten journal, an account of Drake visiting him in prison to reveal that he slept with Wayne's girlfriend. "Finding out that she f***** Drake was the absolute worst thing I could have found out," Wayne writes. "Drizzy came to see me, he was like, ‘Yeah, it's true.' Damn! This is the type of s*** a man never wants to find out while he is locked up."
