Lil Wayne Officiated a Same-Sex Marriage in Prison

He details the special occasion in his new memoir.

Published September 26, 2016

Lil Wayne has a new memoir coming out in a couple of weeks and it is already shaping up to be one of this fall’s must-reads.

The 159-page memoir, Gone ’Til November: A Journal of Rikers Island, focuses on Weezy’s thoughts and experiences while serving his eight-month sentence in 2010, including that one time he had the opportunity to be a wedding officiant.

In his memoir, the rapper includes details of when he was called upon to help wed two other male inmates, such as how the ceremony included cookies, 13 bottles of Gatorade and decorations crafted out of tissues.

“I got the Bible and I’m like, we gathered here today,” Wayne recounted. “We even had a reception, which everybody brought something for the couple.” He also shares that he brought cookies, because cookies are always appreciated.

“Everybody was running about that b***h with headphones listening to the same station straight up jamming,” Wayne added when detailing the music that soundtracked the special occasion.

“The s**t was too funny!” he concluded. “Imagine seeing grown-a** men in jail handing tissues for wedding decorations…AND one of them is Lil Wayne…Crazy!”

Oh, to be a fly on the wall for that.

Lil Wayne’s memoir is slated for an October 11 release.
