Lil Wayne Lands Book Deal

Hip hop star Lil Wayne scored a book deal with Grand Central Publishing for his prison memoir, Gone Till November. The book will include Wayne’s “revealing” diaries kept during an eight month trip to Rikers Island.

Publication is set for November 2012. On his official Twitter page, Wayne (pictured, via) already counts 4.9 million followers. Matthew Guma from Guma Agency (who also represented Jay-Z) negotiated the deal with Grand Central Publishing executive editor Ben Greenberg.

Here’s more from the release: “The past few years have brought Wayne incredible highs—topping albums sales charts, selling out tours, selling millions of albums, but also dark lows, resulting in a gun charge that landed him in Rikers Island for a year (of which he served 8 months). The journals he kept while incarcerated form an internal monologue, detailing his thoughts and feelings, the strange people he met, his plans, his family, his children, his past, present, and future.”
