Lil Wayne To Release a Memoir
Earlier this week, Lil Wayne expanded his brand by debuting his skateboard apparel clothing line, Trukfit. Now, Weezy plans on broadening his wordplay by becoming an author.
According to HipHopDX, Tunechi will be releasing his memoir, Gone Till November, on November 28 via Grand Central Publishing, a division of Hachette Book Group. The book will be a compilation of entries from a diary Wayne kept during his 2010, eight-month stint behind bars.
“We are thrilled to be publishing Wayne’s prison memoir,” said Ben Greenberg, executive editor at Grand Central Publishing. “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."
On Tuesday (January 10), Wayne made a surprise appearance at the 2012 Zumiez 100K event in Keystone, Colorado, where he gave a full presentation of Trukfit. While on stage, Weezy explained the name of the skateboard apparel, telling fans that as a kid he'd grab new gear from the back of a clothing booster truck, reports MTV.
“When a person could spot a fake, they’d be like you got on the truck fit,” he said, “So now it’s cool to have on the truckfit, ya dig!”
Wayne’s Trukfit line will be available at Zumiez retailers nationwide and will debut in New York at the end of the month during the Agenda trade show. —Christian Bonoan
