"Transfixing...[Wayne's] prison diary is, above all, a testament to the irrepressibility of his charisma?his is a force that can never go dormant, even when it's not plainly on display." ?The New Yorker From rap superstar Lil Wayne comes the long-awaited Gone 'Til November , a deeply personal and revealing account of his time spent incarcerated on Rikers Island for eight months in 2010. Named a Rolling Stone must read for Fall 2016. In 2010, recording artist Lil Wayne was at the height of his career. A fixture in the rap game for more than a decade, Lil Wayne (aka Weezy) had established himself as both a prolific musician and a savvy businessman, smashing long-held industry records, winning multiple Grammy Awards, and signing up-and-coming talent like Drake and Nicki Minaj to his Young Money label. All of this momentum came to a halt when he was convicted of possession of a firearm and sentenced to a yearlong stay at Rikers Island. Suddenly, the artist at the top of his game was now an inmate at the mercy of the American penal system. At long last, Gone 'Til November reveals the true story of what really happened while Wayne was behind bars, exploring everything from his daily rituals to his interactions with other inmates to how he was able to keep himself motivated and grateful. Taken directly from Wayne's own journal, this intimate, personal account of his incarceration is an utterly humane look at the man behind the artist. From the Hardcover edition.

This book made me say, "Oh my gosh. This looks interesting. I want to read this." So I did. It was interesting to read. Lil Wayne provided much insight on what life was like during his incarceration. He also describes the trouble he went through. I would have to say that to write of his experiences one hundred fifty-nine times takes a lot of determination. Furthermore, with the handwriting that he used and the length of some of his entries, I have determined that Lil Wayne can write.

"Weezy's" book was nothing less than exceptional in my eyes. I never knew he had this side in him, this book really brings out the unheard story of "Weezy F. Baby" a.k.a Lil Wayne.
