Lil Wayne's book "Gone Til November," a memoir of his eight months spent on Rikers Island, is set to come out on October 11th. New excerpts from the book shared by Vulture offer insight into the mind of Weezy and notable stories from his period of incarceration. Most notably, he received visits from Kanye West, Drake, Diddy, & Chris Paul.

"I have to give props where props are due," he wrote. "Big shout-out to Diddy, Chris Paul, Drake Kanye for coming to see me, especially with their schedules. I know that they had to go through some extra shit, because you just can't walk in this bitch and say, 'I want to see Dwayne Carter.'”

Drake brought ill tidings during his visit, namely that he had slept with Lil Wayne's girlfriend. "As a man, honestly, that shit hurt, and not because it was Drake. It could've been any man and it would've hurt the same," Wayne wrote upon hearing the bad news.

The Diddy visit was "total chaos": "Every captain in the building was down there!" Wayne wrote. "Even the deps and the warden! Everyone just wanted to see him. It was kind of aggravating, but it is what it is." 

The excerpt includes the story of Wayne's first day in jail --"As soon as I heard the cell door lock behind me, I just sat on the back wall and the tears began to flow as I took my first glimpse at my new digs: three buckets, one bed, one toilet that was surprisingly kind of clean (emphasis on kind of)" -- and includes details from the mundane to the surprising, including Wayne's nervousness as he rapped in the yard for the first time, his morning routine (coffee and chill), and his ultimate feelings about jail:

"I don't ever want to come back to this bitch! There's absolutely nothing cool about jail. It's nasty. It's dirty. Everything is fucking used. Getting something new in the bitch is like winning the lottery. You have to be a certain mothafucka to get new shit. And since I get new bedsheets and shit, it's a good thing that I'm that certain mothafucka!"
