Lil Wayne Writing Prison Memoir Titled Gone Till November
Granted ... Lil Wayne ain't no Nelson Mandela.
He only spent 11 months in prison (not, you know, 27 years) after getting busted on his tour bus for "attempted possession of a weapon" (not, you know, attempting to free the people of South Africa from the horrors of Apartheid), but why not cash in with a prison memoir?
The YMCMB spitter's tome is slated to hit streets in November 2012, coinciding with the two-year anniversary of his release from Rikers Island.

Currently, there's no word on Gone Till November's page count or table of contents. But for the record, we here at Crossfade hope Wayne finally provides the literary universe with a riveting, detailed account of that time a Rikers corrections officer confiscated his iPod?
