Lil Wayne ‘I Was Close To Suicide’ in Prison In New Memoir

Lil Wayne revealed a lot about what happened when he spent 8 months in prison including his attempted suicide.

The book “Gone ‘Til November: A Journal of Rikers Island” is out now and chronicles Weezy’s life behind bars at the New York prison in 2010. So far we’ve seen him spoke about Drake smashing his girlfriend and getting visit from Diddy and Kanye West. But seems life was a challenge for the Young Money rap legend as he broke his silence about getting very close to suicide.

“One thing that stood out was how I’ve never been this close to suicide before,” Lil Wayne said in an excerpt released by Rolling Stone. “It’s truly a new reality for me. I was actually there when this kid that was in mental isolation tried to hang up.”

“Jail desensitizes a lot of things,” Wayne added. “The reality in here is so harsh. I will never understand how anyone could think that this sh*t is cool.”

Thankfully Wayne got through the ordeal and even rap about it in the song “Mad” with Solange Knowles on her new album “A Seat At The Table.”

At the end of the book, Lil Wayne recalls feeling a burst of positive and creative energy on his final night as he thinks about getting back to his regular life and spend some time with his children.
