Lil Wayne to Write a Book About Jail Time

Lil Wayne is writing a book. Not just any book, a memoir. And no, it wont be one of those "silly" memoirs filled with goofy stories about the time the dog ate the Christmas ham, Lil Wayne is writing a memoir about his time in prison.

In case you forgot, Lil Wayne spent 8 months on Rikers Island jail in 2010 for possession of a weapon and marijuana, you know, normal things that rappers get arrested for all the time.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, Grand Central Publishing will release "Gone Till November" which will feature all his diary entries he wrote while serving hard time.

"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," says his publisher, Ben Greenberg.

But will they really be that revealing? Because of Wayne's "celebrity status" he was kept separate from all the other prisoners, so his prison stay was very isolate and probably boring. What's the memoir going to entail: "Today I stared at the wall and wrote this. Tomorrow, I will probably do the same thing. I might also eat an apple. Or a banana, not sure yet."

While in prison he wrote letters to fans who posted it on a website called "Weezy Thankx You." Here's some of what he wrote in those letter and might give a glimpse into what the book might contain.

"The more time you spend contemplating what you should have done… you lose valuable time planning what you can and will do," wrote Weezy and also "Hate is only a form of love that hasn't found a way to express itself logically.

Pretty sure I read those exact quotes on a poster in an elementary school somewhere.
