Update (7/02): The New York Times has confirmed that Gone 'Til November: A Journal of Rikers Island will see its release October 11 via Plume, a Penguin imprint. A representative from Penguin confirms that the book is his account of his 2010 incarceration following a gun possession charge, and that a co-writer wasn't involved. Gone 'Til November is set to "reveal the true story of what happened while he was at Rikers Island, exploring everything from his daily rituals to his interactions with other inmates to how he was able to keep himself motivated and grateful."

Back in 2012, reports surfaced that he will be publishing a memoir—titled Gone Til November—about his time in prison. Four years have since passed, but we may finally have a solid release date.
According to Noisey's discovery, pre-orders for the book have appeared in the Apple Store and websites like Barnes & Noble and Penguin. The Penguin website has it priced at $23, along with this description:
From rap superstar Lil Wayne comes the long-awaited GONE ‘TIL NOVEMBER, a deeply personal and revealing account of his time spent incarcerated on Rikers Island for eight months in 2010.
It also states the memoir will be released Oct. 11 of this year. Weezy served eight months of the 12-month sentence he received in March 2010, after pleading guilty to attempted possession of a criminal weapon.
