Lil Wayne is offering a literary tour of his prison days.
The million-selling rapper has signed with Grand Central Publishing, a division of Hachette Book Group, for the memoir Gone Till November.
The book will tell of his eight months spent at the Rikers Island complex on a gun charge, Hachette said Thursday. Scheduled to come out in November, the book will be an “internal monologue,” based on diaries he kept in prison.
Lil Wayne had the best-selling album of 2008 with “Tha Carter III,” which won a best rap album Grammy.
