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.


Girl Power Prevails At The 2017 American Music Awards



Music’s most amazing night went down Sunday at the Microsoft Theater in L.A. and we have to say the night was all about the ladies!

That’s right the 45th American Music Awards had some major moments and some major girl power starting with Pink and Kelly Clarkson.

The duo got the show started singing R.E.M.’s “Everybody Hurts”, but it was their solo performances that had fans going nuts.

Kelly Clarkson returned to the stage and had everyone on their feet with a medley of her classic tracks and new single “Love So Soft.”

While Pink took her career to new heights leaping off the side of a building while performing her hit single “Beautiful Trauma.”

Christina Aguilera, paid tribute to Whitney Houston with a commemorative performance for the 25th anniversary of The Bodyguard.

But the #Majah moment of the night had to be Diana Ross. The Motown legend was given the Lifetime Achievement Award, and performed some of her greatest hits before accepting the honor.
