Show some props to Weezy!
Hip-hop has always been known for being quite a homophobic genre, but we’re making progress and Lil Wayne is to thank for the latest step in promoting the fight for equality.
In case you didn’t know, Weezy is doing more than just fighting his legal battle with Baby, he’s also prepping the release of his first memoir. Aptly titled “Gone ‘Til November: A Journal of Rikers Island,” the book is an account of the rapper’s 8-month stint spent in the NY prison back in 2010. He was in over gun charges. Not only does he detail the time that Drake visited him to confess he’d slept with his girlfriend of the past, but Wayne also recalled the moment when he officiated a same-sex marriage behind those very prison walls as per a new excerpt from the New York Post.
After the ceremony, the rapper decorated the halls of the prison with toilet paper and toasted with bottles of Gatorade because the sports drink is “liquid gold in [that] bitch.”
“Gatorade is liquid gold in this bitch . . . Imagine seeing grown-ass men in jail hanging tissue for wedding decorations. AND one of them is Lil Wayne. Crazy.”
If you want to read more of Wayne’s time spent in Rikers Island, make sure you grab a copy of the book when it hits stands on October 11.
