One of rap’s premier lyricists is using his way with words in a new memoir titled, Gone ‘Til November: A Journal of Rikers Island. The book features diary entries penned by Lil Wayne during his eight months behind bars.
Wayne was released from Rikers Island on November 4, 2010, after serving two-thirds of a one-year prison sentence. During his stint, the rapper painfully remembers a visit from Drake, who broke some unfortunate news to him. The Canadian emcee had slept with one of Wayne’s side chicks, Tammy Torres. And if you’re wondering what the woman who chopped down two of rap’s biggest names looks like, here you go:
Wayne writes, “This is the type of sh*t that a man never wants to find out when he’s locked up. Or, maybe so, cause only God knows what I would have done if I wasn’t locked up right now.”
Asked about that tryst in an exclusive interview with HipHollywood, Wayne appears, at times, genuinely hurt and, at other times, completely unbothered by the betrayal.
“That’s just how life go when you locked up,” the New Orleans native tells our Jasmine Simpkins. “She still be texting me and stuff,” he continues before looking directly into the camera and issuing this light-hearted warning to the woman: “Stop texting me, too, for real … cause it still hurt!”
The rapper admits that prison makes the heart grow fonder of people you may have taken for granted as a person with freedom. “When you in jail, though, even your side side side side is your main. When you in jail, it could be somebody that when you was outta jail you ain’t ever text her back. You ain’t call her when she called you. You couldn’t tell what color her hair was. But when you in jail … if she don’t answer that phone when you call … phew,” he explains.
Our full interview with Lil Wayne will be published on Friday. Gone ‘Til November: A Journal of Rikers Island is in stores tomorrow.
