Lil Wayne Will Release A Book This Year About His Time In Prison

Lil Wayne Will Release A Book This Year About His Time In Prison

On November 28th this year, Lil Wayne will release a memoir titled “Gone Till November” through Grand Central Publishing (a division of Hachette Book Group). The book will detail Weezy‘s experience in jail and show the diaries that Wayne wrote while locked up behind bars in 2010 for 8 months. Also included in the journals will be Tune‘s thoughts and feelings, the people he met, his plans, his family, his children, his past and his future.

“We are thrilled to be publishing Wayne’s prison memoir,” said Ben Greenberg, executive editor at Grand Central Publishing. “He kept detailed journals of his inner and outer life while he was on Rikers Island, and they certainly tell a story. They are revealing.”

Lil Wayne Places #7 On MTV’s 2010 Hottest MC In The Game List x “Free Weezy” Pumpkin

To wit, he released the compilation album We Are Young Money in late December ’09, two full-length solo LPs — Rebirth, which debuted at #2 on the Billboard albums chart and has since gone gold, and I Am Not A Human Being, which sold 110,000 copies in its first week of release in September — more than a handful of videos and a couple of notable collaborations. A mainstay on the Hottest MCs list, his time away precipitated a fall of five slots from last year’s #2 ranking, but MTV News’ Hip-Hop Brain Trust still voted Lil Wayne the #7 Hottest MC of 2010. – MTV

What are your thoughts on Tunechi getting the number 7 spot on MTV’s Hottest MC In The Game 2010 list ❓ I don’t agree with this choice because I know Weezy has been in jail for most of 2010, but he has still been dropping videos and releasing amazing music throughout the year.

After the jump, you can view some photos Said Abdulbari sent over to me of him supporting the “Free Weezy” movement by carving it into a pumpkin.

Lil Wayne’s “Tha Carter IV” Makes Complex’s “25 Most Anticipated Albums Of 2010”

Ever since Lil Wayne‘s Tha Carter III was released on August 19th, 2008, everyone’s been anticipating the next chapter of Tha Carter series, Tha Carter IV. The anticipation grew more once Wayne was sentenced to a year in prison, due to a felony gun charge. The hype of the album is so big, that Complex considered it in their “25 Most Anticipated Albums Of 2010”. Lil Wayne‘s Tha Carter IV made #7 on the list, which may be a disappointment to most of his fans. But despite it’s lower-than-expected ranking, it’ll be an album to remember. Here’s what Complex had to say:

During last summer Universal said this record would be released in the 4th quarter of 2009, after Rebirth, so clearly there are songs recorded. But with Rebirth’s release at a standstill due to lack of interest and the Best Rapper Alive ‘pon lock for most of 2010, we’re thinking Universal, and more importantly their shareholders, are gonna force this LP’s release by the end of the year. The big question is, will it be a frankenstein of the rap records he’s made post-Rebirth, or will he scrap everything when he gets out of jail and put together an entirely new LP reflecting his presumably changed world view?

What do you guys think about Tha Carter IV only reaching the #7 spot, and do you all think it will be released this year?
