Rapper Lil Wayne has penned a memoir about his time in the slammer, and in it, he writes of a time when he "playfully" officiated a same-sex wedding between two inmates.
Gone Til' November is a handwritten journal penned over the eight months Lil Wayne spent at Rikers Island after being convicted of attempted possession of a weapon in the second degree; a plea bargain that came with a year-long sentence.
Page Six reports that Lil Wayne writes of making wedding decorations out of toilet paper and toasting the happy couple with 13 bottles of Gatorade.
“Gatorade is liquid gold in this bitch," he writes. "Imagine seeing grown-ass men in jail hanging tissue for wedding decorations. AND one of them is Lil Wayne. Crazy.”
Crazy, indeed, but with all music artists looking to diversify their brands, maybe Lil Wayne could become a part-time wedding planner, or at least star in The Wedding Planner 2: Plan Harder.
It's also another step forward for the long-homophobic hip-hop community, which recently has seen stars more stars speak out in favour of the LGBTQIA+ community.
