Lil Wayne’s Jail Book Full Of Funny Tidbits
We may really have to go cop Weezy’s new book! New excerpts from Wayne’s memoir “Gone ‘Til November” revealed in Page Six unveil some pretty funny stories, including how he won himself a job on the suicide prevention team at Rikers
Wayne wrote, “I spoke with Flea about the suicide prevention job and hooked him up with a chick from a magazine he had. It went well and that’s all I’m going to say about that, haha.”
In addition to creating his own entertainment within the confines of his cell, including writing lyrics, Wayne recalls in the tome that he pretended his jail cell was a club. “My light isn’t [working] . . . it’s blinking on and off like a disco,” he wrote. “So it’s like I’m in the club.”
He made $20 million while inside, as tracks he’d collaborated on with other artists were released.
He wrote, “I was trying to keep it on the low up in here, but Forbes (bleep)ing blew my cover and announced that in three months I had just made $20 million . . . in jail.”
Pretty funny stuff riiiiight? Wayne was released after eight months behind bars.
