Lil' Wayne to release prison memoir
The celebrated rapper, who was recently named as Top R&B/Hip-Hop artist by Billboard, will offer a candid portrait of his experience behind bars.
He is releasing his book through Grand Central Publishing, which will no doubt be anticipating huge sales given the popularity of the star.
"We are thrilled to be publishing Wayne's prison memoir," said Ben Greenberg, executive editor at the publishing house.
"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."
Before he began his jail sentence he was given time to have emergency dental surgery.
However, in prison, Weezy was treated the same as everyone else and received no celebrity concessions.
For example, when he was found with a contraband MP3 player, he had to go into solitary confinement.
Wayne recently released his skateboarding clothing range to the public, which reflects his eclectic fashion sense.
