Rapper Lil Wayne has been moved into what Rikers Island officials refer to as “punitive segregation," New York Department of Corrections Spokesman, Stephen Morello confirmed to CNN. The artist began the prison stint back in March because of a gun possession charge.
The reprimand was handed down because of music-related contraband; it turns out that Wayne was caught with an MP3 charger and headsets during a search of his cell a few months ago. (Another inmate was caught actually holding the MP3 player.)
Lil Wayne, who was relocated to the isolated cell on Monday, is expected to spend 30 days there, which means he won’t have contact with or circulate among the rest of the prison population. It also means that he’ll spend 23 out of 24 hours inside the cell, with an hour of guard-supervised recreation.
The 28-year-old is expected to be released from prison around November 3.

R.I.P BOB MARLEY ,SEAN, JAMES
LIL WAYNE KEEP TRAPPIN
Let him ROT.....
I am sorry, but I believe that solitary confinement as punishment for any kind of behavior, is cruel and unusual and the equivalent of torture. It should be banned from the penal system. Why is listiening to music banned when watching TV is allowed? It should be the other way around. I guess Rikers wants to ensure that the criminals they imprison come out more screwed up and hardened than they were when they went in. For society's sake, this has got to be changed.
first off for all of you talking crap about lil wayne like he's not the greatest rapper and all... just remember that he doesn't claim to be the greatest rapper he claims to be the greatest rapper alive and till this day nobody has prooved him wrong... lil wayne is the only rapper that does almost every type of rap and talks about everything and anything... and for all of you that say he's corrupting your childrens minds then wake up because you can't blame rappers for your inability to be aware of your childrens actions... and for the thing about being tossed in solitary for an mp3 player is pointless not only for him but for anyone if they really wanted to strangle someone they can do it with the bedsheets with a shirt or anything along those lines... also yeah it was a gun charge but he didn't kill anyone or even shoot anyone... so everyone stop tripping because i'm sure half the people who are talking crap wouldn't care if they had a gun... just because he's a rapper he has to be a thug?!? since when
This was smoke and mirrors yall. This move was orchestrated so Wayne would not be attacked or assaulted in his final days at the prison. So that he is not harmed or possibly could harm another inmate that could file for additional charges against him. READ BETWEEN THE LINES folks. You don't think the prison made exceptions for him...all this time and now he just got caught. NOVEMBER 3 release date...SMART on behalf of his camp. Protecting their INVESTMENT. However don't feel sorry.
Out on November 3rd and back in by Nov 10. My prediction – I have history on my side. Some people never learn. I don't give a hoot who he THINKS he is.
30 days in isolation...you know he's gonna write the best music he's ever written and come out higher than he already is. And he'll know he's at the top when only heaven's up above him.
HE ASKED FOR IT. Grow up and pull your pants up. It's a big world out there. Bigger than childish pop music.
why are people so wrapped up in another rapper going to jail? They are humans too and they will do things that are not right. People need to chill out snd continue with their lives.
all i c is niccaz hatin on niccaz wit money cuz they aint got it
Who is LiL Wayne?
LIL WAYNE IS THE TRUTH AND I LOVE EM FREE LIL WAYNE
this goes to the Ex-Prison Guard close to the top of the page. You need to chill out. he made a mistake. gun charges are petty and little. And NOONE cares about authority. pigs need to leave everybody alone. they need to mind their own F****** busniess. period end of story. Lil wayne is the truth. He dont take any crap from anybody. He says what he feels and does what he feels like doing. just leave him alone
lil wayne is the truth! lmao i just died a little inside
woah woah woah first of all the gun was his mangers not his so dont jump on his dick cause of something his idiotic manager did. and second of all weither he is in prison or not he should not be cut off from the one thing that makes him, well him. leave him alone you people think you all high and mighty up on here but until you know whats goin on shut up!
lil.wayne cuz we love you and miss u keep your head up.......
30 days wwwwwwwwwwooooooooooooooooooooowwwwwwwwwwwwwww in islated
Somehow this makes it onto CNN. Who cares?
A POS that has contributed nothing to society. Couldn't happen to a nicer guy. The hell with him....
Here's to you getting shanked in the shower room...
Eish datz a serious one, so unfortunate of him dis sh'ld neva had happened hey!
PUNK!.................just enfuses the rap stereotype
I thinks me might be gettn a lil perturbed concerning the disparity here, Bubba. Now if we were in Tennessee and you said you was goin out to git yor gun ,I would say OK bubby see you when you come back in.
As an artist, I think you're one of the best. But as a person, I think you're kind of ignorant. I mean cmon dude, you are rich so why would you wanna do such stupid things as this. Its crazy. Ima Gucci fan and an artist. Keep ya head up.
thick ugly drags
Hip Hop is not music
its noisy garbage for thugs.
Don't think Wayne cares what you think.
Enjoy your stay wanna be musician THUG
lil wayne < eminem
Do you know how many dudes are out there in tour buses with guns and weed,white guys ,black guys whatever.Wayne was specially targeted because of who he is and black.Where I live they don't arrest whites for dope,they out in front of my house year after year with dope and I don't mean weed. Now whites want guns in bars,drinking establishments yes the NRA is not affiliated with the NAACP.But in Harlem a black man even , maybe , only mentioned a gun and he was shot to death over 55 times by undercover police,yes Mr. Sean Bell.Long live L wayne brother.
@ "Mr." Davidson....your a trip...and a loser. You just think the White guys get away with eveything uh?? You think the black cops that ride by just let the white boys sling rock and not do anything about it?? Maybe your buying tooo much from that white boy if your really believe that!
lil wayne should be $#&*@# up
youngmoney i believe you are right
lilwayne is to believed to be gay
Why is this news?
So he is in Prison, not jail (I thought this was a jail) for an alleged crime. Either he is convicted and in prison or being held in jail for an alleged crime. Stop being a wordsmith.
Why is anyone concerned about these talentless, bonehead rap "artists"? Dogs create better "art" when they take a dump!
He was placed in “punitive segregation," because of who he is. If the article is correct he will be released on Nov 3. Well it's already Oct. They used any excuse they could to keep him safe. It's just protocal. Take him out of "gen-pop" so no one gets any crazy ideas. He is a celeb, right? Those guys live off of 'rep',so..............
HAHA from the sound of things. It sounds like Wayne did unspeakable things with your mom while your dad video taped, took your only girlfriend you ever had and made you watch while she did unspeakable things in front of you, finished ahead of you in grad school, and took a dump in your corn flakes this morning. Wow, smh at all the hate. I hate to see what you'd say if about people you actually know. SMH
........make it 60 days for his latest album.
This will only make his next project that much better.
guess wat no one cares u guys are actin like kids
I guess he got scared in there no crew to protect him?
You guys are all dumb.
he is no artist! and ok Kanye stronger really? he and paris and lohan should all be put away for a year in a prison with the other inmates this will give them time to turn there life around it is for there best intrest!!!
R YA'LL serious??? LOL! inmates know what to do to "keep the peace before their release!" He aint even got 30 days before he is out, think about it-he did it on purpose! "ninjas" locked up will start some "ish" on purpose when your time dwindles down because they are jealous... Wayne is smart. dumb but smart. :)
I think calling this dirtbag an artist is an insult to artists.
Everyone has their own syle of art. Wouldn't it be boring if everyone liked the same thing.
Wow! Why are they so hard on Wayne? They sure didn't treat Paris or Lohan like this. I can't wait for Wayne to get out and start kickin out albums again. Hold strong Wayne, what doesn't kill ya makes ya stronger!
either one will work
he's not in prison he's in the county jail, people need to figure that out their a big difference with the two.....
You know what he`s singing now? Go DJ, thats my DJ.
rap is played out, hasn't gone anywhere in ten years except a new face spewing out the same garbage. pathetic.
Alot of people are commenting but don't even understand the whole situation. First of all, he was charged with the gun possession because it was found in a bag, that wasn't his, on his tour bus. Now there are countless other people on and off the bus but of course THEY try to stick him with the charge because of who he is. I honestly don't know why he didn't fight it. For some reason, people think rappers are the worst people ever but continue to put people like Lindsay Lohan behind the wheels of cars for her to eventually kill herself and others one day. Now, as far as him being punished... if he's not supposed to have it, fine. Do that! But at the end of the day, you have to admit that the punishment doesn't fit the crime (contraband) and he should not have to be in solitary that long
oh i guess there he will miss his rolls royce and his 40 pound gold chain what a waist while there are families out there strugling to place food on the table and we pay this fool millions of dollars for what? he may also loose those gold teeth while he is in there!!!!!
i know right hahahahahaha
you idiots know the tattoo's under his eyes are drips for every person he has had to kill because hes gang affiliated.
He's never killed anyone and has said that numerous times in his songs, which is funny because you have plenty of rappers that brag on doing it (for what reason I don't know) that also have never pulled a trigger.
tear drops also stand for losing a loved one...plus is there really a way to prove to the tattoo artist that you killed one. meaning you could go get the tear drops today if you wanted...
lil wayne should go back to school it is little not lil no such language here. He does the crime he does the time and I beleive that Paris and Lindsay should also be in jail with the regular population not this fancy cell there in that is a joke as well. Throw them in for a year I bet they will change!!!!!!
Let him rot !!! Just gives him something to spit!!!!
That stinks he's in isolation. All that quiet with all those rap songs in his head. Poor guy.
30 days for an MP3 player? If anything this speaks volumes about what's on Wayne's mind while he's waiting to get out. Its not like he had a shank or some drugs. Greatest rapper alive, the people at the pen are just jealous because he's worth more than they'll ever be! Love from Nola, Free Weezy!
Haters wanna hate. Lovers wanna love. I don't really want, none of the above, I want to pi$$ on you, yes I do. Drip, drip, drip.
I have read all 181 comments. In each one, there are grammatical errors, the use of wrong verbage, words spelled incorrectly....
If any of you posting comments had more than an eighth grade education, you would understand that rules are in place for a reason. As stupid and banal as the rule may seem, just follow it. If you break the rule, you suffer the consequences. Each inmate knows the rules. And there is a time when each inmate has NOT broken a rule. But then comes the choice. The inmate can either follow the rules and stay clean, or make the wrong decision (knowingly) and break the rules. Wayne made a concious decision to break the rules with the MP3 player. Now, he must suffer the penalty, as stupid as it seems.
Also, I'm sure someone who is 28 yrs old shouldn't carry the moniker "lil", especially in prison.
Stephen.... you forgot to capitalize your name : )
People are reaching for something to complain about here. Just let all your hate go, it's not worth it lol. Years ago he said that he was named after his father. So no matter what happens in life (his father dies or lil wayne lives to be 100 years old) he'll always be the little one (meaning his fathers son).
"I have read all 181 comments. In each one, there are grammatical errors, the use of wrong verbage, words spelled incorrectly....

Wayne made a concious decision to break the rules with the MP3 player.
I think you meant "conscious"? Tell your 8th grade teacher I said hello.
Does anyone honestly care? Buy my new album.
Wow. Paris gets caught with cocaine...slap on the wrist. Lindsay Lohan gets multiple DUI's and probation violation...slape on the wrist. Lil Wayne gets caught with a gun on a bus that could have belonged to anyone in his entourage...goes to jail. Lil Wayne gets caught with MP3 player...gets 30 days of 23hr lockdown. I guess Lady Justice is blind... when it comes to pretty little white girls. BTW don't think TI is going to catch a break; he just came out of prison-strike 2-or is it 3?
an MP3 charger... ooOOOOOOOOOOOoooooooooooooo that's just sooooo contraband. Be for real.. most these people incarcerated get to watch TV all day and play games, of course he's going to want to listen to music. Whatever, just goes to show you that the law is all grey area and all subject to the decisions of individuals rather than a whole system.
30 days for an MP3 player? If anything this speaks volumes about what's on Wayne's mind while he's waiting to get out. Its not like he had a shank or some drugs. Greatest rapper alive, give him a break! Weezy F Baby! Sendin love from Nola!
keep ya head up brah!
There is nothin POP about wayne.....everytime a rapper become famous yall quick to call them a pop artist. Ok i guest yall want them to remain broke an unknown.....I guess Jay is a pop artist also
Let him die in prison. The world will be better without him
Greatest rapper? He's ok, but not great. Heck, I can perform his songs better than he can.
r u gay
And this is what kids look up to ? The poor ni**er,a gun totten fouled mouth piece of crap got sent to the hole,Oh my what is the world coming to ?!!!
phuck you MIKE. i wish you'd say something like that NOT behind your lonely computer. no friend-having loser.
Hopefully an end, so we wont have to deal with cowardly anonymous bigots like you.
The punishment does not fit the crime. Should have just docked him Jello for a couple of days.
He's a prisoner, contraband is contraband no matter what your previous profession was. He's allowed to earn a living in prison, should the warden decide he's fit for a job while he's in there. Prisoners have very few rights and rightfully so! They broke the law, for whatever reason, and they got caught. The punishment is living in a cell, by the state's rules. An MP3 player is just as bad as a cell phone, drugs or weapons in prison. They are all contraband and they will all land you in isolation. Hopefully he uses his time wisely and thinks about what got him in prison in the first place and change his life. Obviously something is wrong if you've found yourself in a cell in a state prison and it's no one else's fault.
They should give him a pen and some paper. I wonder what he would write while sober and in isolation.
keep his worthless thug a** locked up forever as far as i"m concerned. no great loss.
there's nothing wrong with what wayne did. First off, if you're exposed to the type of crap he is, you need a gun. if he was a country singer with a gun, it'll be no problem. maybe if his name was lohan or hilton, he can get away with it.
he got caught with an MP3 PLAYER bruh!!!!!! he makes music for a living!!!! it's his life!!!!!! it's not like he had coke in his purse!!! racists........read between the lines homie.
Good for him. Snap – he did NOT just get caught wit no MP3 playah. You get it, esse? God willing Allah will punish him.
He should get life just because of the (c)rap that he produces...
HAHAHAHAHA This is so ironic it's funny. I see what you did there. LOL. I guess I'll play along with you and pretend that Tim McGraw didn't make that rap song with Nelly. LOL, you guys are something else. I needed that laugh. You sir are a clever man.
Remy730 UR AWESOME! I LOVE UR COMMENTS! DO YOU HAVE TWITTER? FOLLOW ME PLS @KushLady :)
LOL @ People feeling BAD for him. What is this world coming too??? He's a criminal who was carrying around drugs and guns.
If it was me or you.....we would be in jail for a lot longer and treated like animals.
This guy will end up back there i'm sure.
Want a rapper who is a good model to our youth? Try Lecrae and Reach Records. He just dropped a new album, "Rehab". What a world of differences between him and Lil Wayne.
Why did he drop it? He might want to pick it up.
Two words: Different Styles :)
How is it that people like Lindsay Lohen, Paris Hilton and others (women celebrities) get slaps on the wrist when they do something illegal but people like Lil Wayne and Keifer Sutherland and others (men celebrities) have to do their real time. Double standard just a little. Because these girls have cried and manipulated the system that they we suicidal and such, they get out.
Why should Lil Wayne be any different, because he had music in his cell they will send him to isolation, but Paris Hilton and Lindsay Lohan get get away with all that...WOW...there's no justice what so every!!!
haters gonna hate. :D
Idiots gonna say idiotic things. :(
He is a NO TALENT THUG. I am sure this will not be the last of his incarcarations.
Everyone on here is saying that he will be dealt like a gangster and stufff but not once in this article does it say anything about how he fealt, you guys are acting like he was complaining about it or something, he was'nt.
Weezy is a G! He'll be aite! Plus when he comes out he's gonna have a lot of ideas for songs n isht! I cant wait! :D
I don't care much about lil wayne. I just came to this article to read about the trouble this rap start must have gotten into. I was guessing a shank an assault. Lol I guess he proved me wrong. Like israel said, if his big crime is an MP3 player, his head's in a much better place than most of the other inmates. GL lil wayne, whoever you are.
He can use that time wisely to think about what he did to hip hop
Wat did he do?! Make it GREAT?! Take the game to a whole new level?! which one?! lol
He's a great ENTERTAINER! (A lot of ppl 4get that) N his TRUE fans LOVE him N miss him N want him back on the mic soon :)
oh boy... here comes another stupid rap song... I feel my ears already starting to bleed. I'm sure if they dug deep enough, they could keep his dirty ass in solitary for a lot long than 30 day. BFD... he'll end up making money of the experience.
If your in jail, you should not get:
Free cable T.V.
Free college or High school education
Any privledge that a free man or woman would EARN!
gun possession charge i thought this was america right to bear arms
he did not kill anybody so whats the problem.
Wooow what racist, stupid scarry comments. I don't want a world where there s only one of anyhing. How narrow mined and insecure lot's of people are. This country was 'built' on the european's system of thuggery, stealing killing confinning and experimenting on melanin folk's. Having a Black President did not stop racism, it only increased it. Investigate before you comment, but i know you wont you cant loose control of your white priviledge. The truth will let you know that you should bow down.
I wish there was a "like" link...I would press it for this comment.
Me too! The melanin folks part had me rolling on the floor LOL
23 hours a day in isolation? For what? listening to music? I call gross violation of human rights. Nobody should be treated with this sort of psychological torture. Not even murderers. The Death Sentence is less cruel than 23hr isolation for a month with not a voice or song to be heard
i like turltes
I like pink pansy panteezz.
So do I!!!!! Wanna buy me 1? ;) lol
RAP sucks plan and simple. It means nothing. The problem with Rap is the C left off the front of it.
hahahahhahahahhahahahahahhahahahahahaha all I can do is laugh LOL If it sucks DONT LISTEN TO IT! TURN THE RADIO OFF! Thats wats so beautiful bout living in a free country LOL If u dont like something just dont listen to it! I HATE country music so I just dont listen to it or follow their performers! PROBLEM SOLVED! ;)
hE JUST WANTED TO SPEND HIS LAST 23 DAYS WITHOUT BEING TESTED..hEATTURNED UP GUYS WANNA START TO TEST HIS ASS ..MONEY STOPPED BEING AN ISSUE.23 HR LOCK ASSURES HIM OF A RELAESD DATE WITH RISKING IT FOR SOME MF TRYING TO TEST HIM
society is better off with him locked up.
He's an inmate for another month, most of you that judge him are stupid for life. You're never getting out.
This article is not within my forte' but a little advice is warranted:
To Miss J, Yes Lindsay L. is a THUG if she stole and kidnapped. Those are the actions of a thug. Check a dictionary.
To Jason et al, imprisonment for offenses, is a sentence handed down to deny the offender their freedom to enjoy the privileges of our normal society. Permissiveness has never corrected offending or criminal behavior.
If he really was a "thug" that everyone has labeled him to be, i think he wouldve had an actual weapon or a drug of some sort smuggled in. Just saying. It was an mp3 player. People act so retarded about what to and what to not have in prison. Hes a musician, not a thug. A thug would have a more dangerous, or illegal object in his cell worth finding and being punished for. Not a mp3.
they should executed him.....worthless trash
who? oh right, a thug. why do we care again?
The rules are the rules. Until he demonstrates a respect for them then he will continue to suffer the consequences. All of this could have been avoided if he played by them the first time....and the second time.
The dude is in jail. He is a non person in jail. You follow the rules or get punished. Some of the comments here are truly idiotic. If he had contraband, stuff he's not supposed to have, he gets confined. That's it. He doesn't get to practice, or groove, or have a good time in any way. Jail. People have heard so much about celebrities in jail that they are imagining that they know something about it. I've been in jail. You just shut up, do the time, get out, and continue on. Free Weezy my A&&.
They just moved him to protect him! How did weezy get an mp3 player in jail?! Who brought it to him?! N to be confined for exactly the amount of time he has left?! Obviously they moved him to protect him...
To the people who be saying Wayne is a bad example to the youth, don't let your children listen to it! To the people saying Wayne needs to read a bible and become a christian, he is way ahead of you. To the people that be saying Wayne is stupid and dumb, man was getting straight A's since elementary! ! ! To the people saying Wayne is a disgrace to rap or that he is an "MTV puppet" who only brings MTV more ratings, you all doing the same for cnn. Wayne has a talent for lyrics and making music. If you dont like him or disapprove of his music, let him and his style be and go back to your genres. Let me n all of Wayne's millions of fans back Him up and stay true to who we admire. #FREE WEEZY. . . .
Lil weezy is just the bomb. All ya talking are just a pack of low life haters that crave for his position. Weezy is music and music is weezy. If its so easy to make a beat and rhyme go do yours so the world can feel you too. Stop mailing trash here,cos you can't say it to his face. Weezy is the greatest rapper alive no doubt and he also rules the rap game.... That's a fact.
OK. Agree with u on almost everything! dont get it twisted TO ME lil wayne is the best rapper alive BUT I dont believe he's better than Jay-Z (which I also LOOOOOOVE!) :p Let's leave it as a tie of equally-talented rappers LOL
Wow! You guys are a bunch of idiots. Sad thing is half of you all have kids that love this man. What gives any of you all the right to judge this man. !st none of you know him, 2nd why the hell aren't you people worried about your promiscuous daughters, and drug abusing sons. So quick to pass judgment on others when I know good and damn well NOBODY on this blog is perfect, and EVERYONE has flaws. Hoping he "rots", he's a thug who "needs" prison. You people have some nerve to pass these judgments on another person without ever speaking a word to them. Everybody's s@&! stinks and yours is no different then his. You judgmental bigots ! Karma is amazing! You all will see!
How can anyone feel bad for him? He's probably in jail with a cell phone, a recliner, and a playstation. Everyone already knows he has a cell phone. The "system" is jacked up. Money can get you anything.
He's trash. listen to actual rappers like Canibus or Jedi Mind Tricks instead. you robots
If you can't do the time ...shut the EFF up!
Cas you do sound extremely hypocritical. You just did EVERYTHING you said others shouldn't do. And why is it your business what people read or comment on? Maybe someone saw a comment they wanted to respond to, or are fans of Lil Wayne. And whoever said this article had anything at all to do with people's happiness? People are probably just killing time, its not like this article put a smile on people's faces and made their day any better. They probably forgot about it a minute after reading it. Also, we can't think of people unless they are thinking of us? That makes a lot of sense, I guess we can't think about basically anyone then. What about your wife in bed, unless she is dreaming about you I doubt she's thinking much at all. But you still think of her. So, why exactly shouldn't people be wasting their time on articles like this? You never even gave a reason.
Dude got a slap on the wrist just like T.I. I like his music too but that doesn't mean that he gets a free ride. Everybody knows that contraband will get you time in the hole. He had contraband, put his ass in the hole. Learn how to play the game, you wanna be thug than get it like one, majority of prisoners do time in the hole that's nothing new. The only thing you need to live is food and water! Also once you are a convicted felon and do time you do not get the same rights as a citizen, while in prison you are property of the state and have to do whatever they tell you. Hence convicted felon CAN'T vote or most of the time get a passport
Yeah jiggaman it seems this thug will just never learn his lesson. I mean carrying around an MP3 player?? He could have seriously done some damage with that.
The "lesson" he is suppose to be learning is not to carry weapons and drugs around with him, or at all really. So having an MP3 player doesn't have a thing to do with the "lesson" he is suppose to be learning.
Wow, I look at all of these comments and am thankful that I have a life! The only reason I'm still awake is because I can't sleep thinking of how lucky I am to be with such a beautiful and smart woman. She is sleeping in my bed right now! I love her so much and yet, I can't sleep because I don't want to feel like I'm wasting my time on mindless things like commenting on a rappers' "Hard Times". I know how hypocritical this sounds right now, but really, find someone or something else that makes you happy. This dude spending his time in jail for whatever crime he committed is not thinking of you! So why then must you think of him.
1st let me say this: Awww ur so sweet! I hope she read this N gives u a BIG ASS KISS!!! So cute! Back to the subject lol... I agree with u! A lot of ppl need to get a life n stop spending ridiculous amounts of time hating on other ppl online and being hurtful n mean for no reason lol Im here cus Im bored during music sweeping season at work so I have extra time while performing the sweep so Y not entertain yourself reading the stupid things other ppl post?! LOL
I think he needs to learn proper conduct, just like anyone else should. Personally, I think he looks awful.
I think he sets a disgusting example to society. To me he looks like a wild gorilla, that escaped from the jungle and cannot speak proper english. I cringe every time I hear his voice. I am glad he is locked away right now. To bad it is not longer.
30 days isolation for having an mp3 charger and headphones? Does that not sound excessive to anyone else? I bet if he were a white guy he wouldnt have gotten any more than a reprimand. Before you respond sorry guys im not black im white.
I find it amazing that we STILL have to make that distintion! Y cant we all be refered to as human beings not white or black or yellow or brown or watever! That shouldnt matter! but again, let's face it... This is america! That is not gonna happen anytime soon.... :S
I find it amazing that we STILL have to make that distinction! Y cant we all be refered to as human beings not white or black or yellow or brown or watever! That shouldnt matter! but again, let's face it... This is america! That is not gonna happen anytime soon.... :S
lets face it, our prison system is completely draconian. No humanity, just a bunch of robots shuffling incarcerated people around till their time is deemed served, lil wayne is no different.
How else do you propose to punish rapists and murderers?
You guys can't compare LA to NY in laws. I am all for the gun laws in NY. It's the biggest safest city in America. Meanwhile LA is full of garbage. He thinks he can do anything in prison, the rules should apply to everyone.
seriously, why don't they give him 30 days hard labor or something. that is just stupid any way you look at it.
Sneekers like this deserve the attention of a national news agency like cnn why??
Because its RELEVANT it's happening now n he is a superstar followed by millions of fans that love him n want to know how he is doing... You yourself are talkin bout him rite now n look at the amount of comments n people talkin bout him so OBVIOUSLY it's relevant... thats Y... did that answer your question? here to help ;) lol
Has anybody thought that maybe he was a high risk of being manipulated while in jail (you know most criminals dont care who you are, they will try to extort you and threaten your life) and they drummed this up as a plausible excuse to move him out of polpulation.
I mean, the dude aint that big and he is mad tiny and he is rich.
that sounds like perfect bait for a 'life-er' or a rival gang member (crip or whatever) to prey on him when he doesnt have his 'standard issue' support group with him.
maybe he was like 'look, I can do this time, but these hungry animals are breathing down my neck right now for whatever. is there a way i can spend my time in solitary?"
I mean really folks, how many times have you ever heard someone sneeking in a charger and a set of headphones??
Where are you gonna put it?!?!?
You young people kill me!!
We never had these types of problems when Pac (lord rest his soul) went to jail >:-(
lol so i'm sitting in class reading all these comments and trying my hardest not to bust out laughing hahaha
Love him or hate him, lil wayne is living the thug life.. he made something out of nothing.. wasn't that tupac's definitionof thug life?
i'll tell you this... If I play you a beat, and you can freestyle the way lil wayne does, or even sing without having lyrics in front of you (cause lil wayne never writes ANYTHING down, ever. He sings off the top of his head) then i'll allow you to speak against him.. until then just STFU and leave the guy alone :) Let me see you make millions of dollars in less than 6 months.. you people are idiots.
lol, Lil Wayne didn't make something out of nothing. He was given the platform to succeed at an early age and he grew into it. He's put in work to become as big as he is, but to say he turned nothing into something is over doing it.. he turned something into more. People need to understand he's a character, not a gang banger, not a drug dealer or thug, just an actor who plays the role good.
I dont agree with u there! He DID make something out of nothing! If you dont think so... pls tell me how a poor boy from the ghetto became a multimillionaire superstar?! HE HAD NOTHING! N He HUSTLED (Remember that cus NOBODY gave him nothing) his way to the top so He made that platform with his talent so I DO also think he made something outta nothing...
@LilWaynes#1fan....... Do more research on your obsession, Lil Waynes "Daddy" (some man of no relation to him, who he kissed/kisses on the lips on multiple occasions) invested money in Wayne. Birdman/Slim both gave him what he has, you can't argue that. He's been a millionaire since he was in his early teens, that money is only in his pocket because people helped him get it. So again, to say he came from nothing is overdoing it..
this is horrible... how can they do this to poor lil' wayne. He is punished for having a lousy mp3 player. but they let OJ free for murder. shame shame shame.
Why are they going to release him on Nov. 3rd? They have him in prison. Why not keep him there? This way when he commits his next crime they will know where to find him.
listen young boe lil wizzy is crankin dis music jon i wanna see u make a mill off of a song...matter fact i wanna see yo mill in a year........i heard me
oh come off it now. everyone in prison should be listening to music anyway
Who is this ugly hump?
Have u been living under a rock?! :O
Really?! omaalordy, Is you calling him a ungly hump?! he is up in the music bizz, && where are you?! thats right nowhere that he has been so..how about you shut up! && move on with your life!(:
–(: Good dayy!
What about Roman Polanski? The educated people protested and protested to get him out of jail, and he has done something more serious than owning a gun. Lil' Wayne is the stupid people's Roman Polanski, and in my opinion, jail is and isn't the answer for both of them. Jailtime will give the fake poser rapper more street cred, and Roman Polanski will be dead before he leaves jail. A $100 million fine would do the job a lot more nicely than jail time for both of them.
At least he won't be licking any more lollipops.
30 days in the hole w/ a Bible & a bed. chuckle
Total set up to protect him, he's out in 30 days, would prefer to spend last 30 days not in general population.
It's funny they gave him 30 days and hes get out n 30 days i think the did to protect him smart move!!!!!! I'am just saying
This sounds like a tactic cloaked behind minor charges to move him from the general population to protect him as his release nears...30 days from from now is his release date.
TOTALLY RIGHT ON:
Seems to me that this thug just wont learn his lesson. It really is gross to see such a hardened criminal make millions for poisoning the youth of America with his rap crap.
I LOOK AT PEOPLE WHO ARE DEFENDING HIM, AND A LOT OF NON-CHRISTIAN , NON-BIBLICAL NAMES POP UP.
NO SURPRISE THERE.
CLOWNS ATTRACT CLOWNS
lol, so anybody who isn't Christian is a clown now?? I don't see your logic on that one... There are plenty of Christians in this world who are bigger clowns than Lil Wayne and all of his brainwashed fans, they just have a fancy book that they use to justify their actions (that goes for most religions, but not all people who follow them). I'm not against Christianity, but it's "clowns" like you that makes me question religion in general. We all know right from wrong, we can all do right and wrong, your religion doesn't make you any better than any of these "clowns", so stop hiding behind it.
Your sense of self righteousness its really laughable! are u kidding me?! If you were a TRUE Christian you would NOT be judging him n you would be wishing him good because that is what Christ taught in case you don't remember that! Or maybe you're one of those "christians" that dwell on the misery of others?! Or those that keep saying IM SO HOLY IM SO THIS IM A TRUE BELIEVER! Guess wat?! With those statements you are spreading hate and pretty much everything the devil stands for! U NEED JESUS MY FRIEND!!!
So Lohan gets a slap on the wrist for multiple crimes including felony drugs, and Lil Wayne serves more and more time? I agree he should be inside for the gun charge, but why not lock up the other dumb celebrity too? She deserves solitary more than he does.
All the 30 days is fuel the flame for his lyrics, and to all the people saying everyone loves him because of MTV????? If you have ever listened to his "NON-Commercial" mixtapes you would see what were talking about. So in all reality your the ones listening to the Top40. Haterz only make him more Famous.
Wow...Lots of dumb comments it's actually good he had this ipod he gets confined to a cell rikers is a dangerous place he is secure and safe fr the last month of his stint there. Wayne is dope so loser's get a life!
This is exactly what's wrong with America. This country is so full of pansies that they feel bad for prisoners breaking the rules. You know how you don't get into isolation? Don't break the rules and above all, don't go to prison in the first place. Want to go hug on the murderer in the next cell over as well? He was a welder and now they won't let him weld in prison. Poor him.
He'll be having a lot of S3X for the next 30 days. Course he'll be having it with himself!
about lyndsay lohan!
Ha...they put him in "segregation"! He hasn't much much progress.
Guess he's gonna call Jesse and Al now!
That made a lot of sense.
I just feel bad for the criminals who are celebrity's. There above most people.
I lost a few brain cells reading this.
Please don't have any children.
This AMERICA!!! The land of the free! THEREFORE! This PERSON (HUMAN BEING WITH FEELINGS) Has the right to write whatever s/he likes and however s/he likes! STOP BULLYING!!!! Bullying is not only in our schools it is EVERYWHERE N I resent it! You 2 need to grow up! U need JESUS!!!!
God, is really gonna use u Lil wayne before u come back into this world. take this time to get in tune with your calling and once u hit tha bricks the industry thought u were a beast b 4. lol lol lol lol there not ready for Da Bomb to explode.. keep your head up and one luv from DA BOMB ENT WORLDWIDE......
Just wondering if you could translate that into English?
Now I understand why law enforcement is recruiting ebonics translators.
i dont even know why people nowadays carry guns with them. for protection? you shoot a person you go to jail. reputation to act cool o look i have a gun im gangsta? you get caught with it you go to jail exactly what happened with LW. if LW wants to have a gun with him at all times hire a damn body guard or someone who can legally carry a gun! he has all the money to pay for that. if he wants to use a gun he could go to a firing range almost every state or city has one, world knows how gun crazy this country is.
I think they should disarm the entire population! N the ppl that say how am I gonna protect my home? Get a bat, a knife or anything cus think bout it... If crimininals have no weapons they will have to try harder to hurt some1 or commit any violent crime... JMO!!!
near the middle of the comments someone said that an mp3 player and even cigarettes were harmless. you know nothing about jail. doesnt matter how small an item. they use it as currency and bargain chips. which can lead to several types of violence. placing the staff and other inmates in danger
Maybe he can get another tatoo on his face that says I can't sing. And I am a loser!!!!
Stop riding his johnson and get a life...
What a moron.. Haha He thinks he is so bad..All the money but none of the brains...
Hmmm.......I don't listen to his music....not my thing.....but I think I'm thinkin about Lindsey & Hilton......white....black.....male.....female.....he has to serve his time, why don't they? I also agree that it seems kind of harsh punishment..... Oh, and I'm white.....well kinda tan but still white.
Can u pls explain to me why the fact that your white is relevant? How does that matter? LOL
Is 30 days in the cooler- the mandatory minimum for mp3 charger possession?
another american idol to demoralize the children-
TOO BAD SO SAD - DON'T DO THE CRIME ,IF YOU CAN'T DO THE TIME
Good.. lil wayne is all hype and no talent. He cannot rap good, nowhere near Tupac or Biggie. He is a disgrace to mainstream rap and cannot hold a topic for more than 2 lines. One line he rhymes good, but the next line he goes from how cool he is and instantly rhymes about a totally different topic... THATS WHY HE IS NOT GOOD. He might be able to rhyme a bunch of words, but those words barely ever relate. Any 4 year old can come up with half the stuff Lil Wayne puts out. What a disgrace, I hate talking about him but hes plastered all over the damn TV like a hype magnet that he is. Without MTV and commercials Lil Wayne would NOT be known little kids! Get real!
he's all over the place with his rhymes cause he said it himself he doesn't write anything down (after he heard JayZ does that) so with all the syrup and smoke in his system he can't even remember what the last line was about. He said he "freestyles" 4 lines then stops and thinks of 4 more and continues that process till the song is done. The song "I'm single" is the closest thing to staying on topic for him. Beats carry him and most all other rappers these days. FREE MAX B!!!!!!!!!
Well. He cannot rap well.
and please change your name to "Doesn't know English"
R U serious?! Do u even KNOW wat rap is?! Rap is an art form! Art as u may know doesnt come in a cookie-cutter mold! His music is HIS way of expressing that art! MILLIONS of ppl love him n his music N when you say they dont make sense u should just say YOU dont understand it... N U say a 4 year old could come up with that?! I wanna c u coming up with music that would entertain millions! I wanna c you performing at arenas in front of thousands of ppl! I wanna c you produce like he does! Do you know who nikki minaj is?! He is responsable for her success bcus if you really listen to her rap you will notice wayne's style n signature all over her music! So shut up! Do your homework, n if u dont like rap or his music that is fine but stop trashing him just cus you dont like him! Just cus his style is not the same as rappers you might like doesnt mean he's not talented buddy... STOP HATING!!!!
I am from Denmark, I have been in this country since 1958 and the judicial system is extremely racist in most parts of the country. I realize most people will tell you they are not racist, however it has not changed enough since I first came here. If you don`t like rap music just leave it alone and enjoy what YOU Like let everyone enjoy whatever they like it is none of your concern. So Lil Wayne got 30 days in isolation.I am sure he can handle it, and it is probably a safer place to be. GOD BLESS HIM. We have all made mistakes and made wrong decisions in our younger days Do NOT FORGET.
WOW I applaude you! YOU ARE SOOO RIGHT!!! AMEN!!!! :D
ismusic susc a crime?
Dumb, but smart in a way....he'll come out with a bunch of new song ideas that he'll blame on the experience....problem is they will be worse than before....not to mention no one will be able to understand what he is talking about....it is too bad he couldn't follow the rules....
I dont claim to know anything about the criminal justice system and I may be way off, but it seems to me that some of these guys should be put to some kind of productive work. Locking him in a dark cell for 23 hours a day for 30 days for having an MP3 player doesnt seem to me to be preparing him to "re-enter society."
I find it interesting that he gets 30 days 30 days before he is do for release. I wonder if it has something to do with his safety? Either way this guy is a joke.
this guy HAS to hire paris and lindsays attorneys.... and hope their bought judge takes his * case.
this guy HAS to hire paris and lindsays attorneys.... and hope their bought judge takes their case.
Gun possession is an american right. Having an mp3 player isn't a big deal. We put more people in jail than communist China, than Cuba, than the old Soviet Union. It's a dirty prison-industrial system that convinces the rest of of to put out neighbors and friends in jail forever so constructionists and neanderthal guards can make more money. It's dirty.
You won't find a more vocal supporter of the second amendment than me, but I'm a supporter of *legal* gun possession. Lil' Wayne was concealing a handgun, without a permit, that didn't belong to him, while using illegal drugs. People with at least half a brain don't look to him or his situation to help advocate for gun rights.
Doesn't he know how people sneak things into prison?
Lil' Wayne: "Hey man, I wanted the white iPod!"
Tyrone: "It is the white one, you just gotta clean it."
I don't care who you are, that's just funny.
Way too funny!
Still cant follow the rules.
Willing to bet $ that neither he nor T.I. were ever in jail, prolly overseas somewhere on vacay under the guise of "thug life" so that they can move major units when they "get out". Yeah.
The guy was caught while in jail with contraband. Whether it's harmless or not, there's a reason why it's called contraband. To people who say it's "harmless" you've obviously never been a guard in a prison. Granted Lil Wayne probably wouldn't do it but it's all too common for inmates to take apart supposedly "harmless" items such as music players, radios, tvs, etc. and either craft the internal components to make weapons or use it to hide other contraband. Best just to follow the rules and not do anything stupid that will keep you there longer... He's actually lucky that they didn't add extra time to his over all sentence...
I agree with u! Ur 100% right!
30 days without Rap music sounds more like a reward than a punishment.
to jam bam he has no talent right but he sold 1 million cds in one week. get ur mind right please. lindsey lohan and paris hilton r not good role and they have no brains, for all the time they have been locked up they have never did any serious time, they r crimnals too.
Forget soundcan, I ain't buyin' that...they sell em to the stores and buy em back. No one is selling a million in one week these days. All BS.
He sold a million records in a week because the label spend ten million buying airtime and on advertising campaign. Similar to the movie inception which spent 100 million in advertising to bring in 700 million. Its all numbers game. Anyone can sell a milllion albums in a week with a big budget. Hell our president was elected based on a massive advertising budget not talent.
....while Lyndsey Lohan and Paris Hilton gets slaps on the wrists .....
Well there's a difference in sentencing guidelines between a minor drug possession charge/DWI and a weapons charge.
At least he can't make any more crappy music from an isolated cell!
Yep... glad he cannot get onto TV or news for another 30 days.. without that nobody would know who he even is.
Certaintly not for his subpar rap career.... Lil Jon had a better sounding rap CD and I even found him annoying in the end....
HATER!!!! I can guarantee that maybe not on ur ipod but at least 1 person u know has at least 1 of his songs on their ipod's so U may not like it but part of being civilized is being able to respect other ppl's taste and choices... Lil wayne is a multi-platinum artist... He didnt get there on his own! WE put him there! So if you dont like it shut the tv or radio off n go hide under a rock cus 4 example I HATE Justin Bieber's music! He really doesnt do it for me but millions of girls love him so everytime his music comes on the radio or I c him on tv I turn the channel or shut it off.... Simple uh? Try it! It might help that hatoraid thirst u got! ;)
not sure why an inmate wouldn't be allowed to have an mp3 player....i understand cellphone and weapons and alchohol....but to label an mp3 player...or cigarettes....i mean the guys in jail...should anyone really be denied anything this harmless
Yes. There was a rule and he broke it. It's that simple. Some discipline will do him some good.
It's all good Lil wayne is G! He'll be aight!.. Or maybe you think he didnt do that on purpose so that we cant stop talking bout him n when he gets out the demand for his music is gonna be at an all time high :) That was a calculated mistake ppl ;)
I can only think of Dave Chapelle doing LiL Wayne..........
I love Dave Chappelle. Now there's a talent and a good role model with brains.
Wow, I hope he does not. Lil Jon deserved it.... but Lil Wayne is a marketing MTV puppet with no true talent. Anyone who has listened to rap for more than 3 or 4 years know Lil Wayne is not anywhere near good. He is all hype and marketing like Lady Gaga.... hype, hype, get in the news by doing something small and petty, hype hype.... MAKE A CD SELLLLLLLLLL SELLL SELLLLLLLLLLLLLLL to the stupid MTV kids!
He may be watever u want but he's laughing his way to the bank! n is RICH n dont care bout haters like u cus while ur hating he's gonna be in his yatch sippin on some sirup n smoking a blunt! haha haters are so adorable LOL
he deserves to do a couple months anyone else would be doing more than that. and chapelle did lil jon not wayne
In addition this whole prison sentence was engineered by his management for publicity and to give him a reputation. We are all a little dumber for having taken part in this discussion
I don't feel sorry for reckless and talentless idiots that think the rules don't apply to them. His music is horrible and he's a bad role model with stupid tattoos.
funny how you get 30 days isolation for an mp3 player but other celebs with repeat offenses barely do a week of probation
Now he's really got time to think about why he's there.
how do his hands feel ? He will have more time to use, i guess.
I fear for the possible psychological repercussions which may occur after going 30 straight days without someone to kiss his no-talent ass. Oooooohhhhh.......I hope he makes it.
I agree with the "no-talent" part, but I hope he DOESN'T make it. That guy is just terrible. You know once he comes out, nothing is going to change. Still going to be worthless.
HAHA from the sound of things. It sounds like Wayne did unspeakable things with your mom while your dad video taped, took your only girlfriend you ever had and made you watch while she did unspeakable things in front of you, finished ahead of you in grad school, and took a dump in your corn flakes this morning. Wow, smh at all the hate. I hate to see what you'd say if about people you actually know.
Remy You are a F^(ken IDIOT
Hahahah hey there anti-me... Am I now, keyboard warrior? LOL. and you sir are as adorable as a newborn for that weak comeback. I just want to pinch your cheeks, sweetness. Who's a big boy? Who's a big boy? Who's a big boy? LOL.
It's his fault he's in jail in the first place. They can do whatever they want to him. He shouldn't have had the mp3 player to begin with, stupid kid.
Whatever hater, go back to knitting kitten themed sweaters or whatever it is you do.
Weezy F. Baby and please say the Baby.
ahaha DTB yu funny as isht cuz
And Lindsay Lohan got what? I guess rich white chicks get off easier.
Of course they got off easier..........They're hos.
TI got off, too. I suppose he's a ho, as well.
I'm white and I'm DISGUSTED your right........ LL and Paris get a little talking to and a slap on the wrist but lets put this guy away for about 9 months??????? Just disgusted.
Dude was caught with a gun, that's why he's in jail. You know once you are if, if you don't follow the rules, they can keep adding on time and he may never get out.
Whether he was caught with a gun or LiLo was caught driving drunk, they are equally dangerous...both the gun and the car are lethal weapons...they BOTH deserve to serve stupid amounts of time in prison.
i feel bad for lil wayne:( hes my favorite celeb/music artist/celeb ever! i support him no matter what! well, at least he only got 30 more days..hang in there wayne, its gonna be great when you get out:)
Wow, litle kids aged 14-19 love lil wayne just because MTV tells them so... how sad..
This is all hype and lies to make him appear better.... I bet this didn't even happen but they made it up or he purposely did this to get onto CNN and all the other crappy news sites.
Lil Wayne = Nowhere near as good as Tupac and not even close to Biggie.... far far away from "BEST RAPPER EVER" - why do kids keep saying this? What a joke... I laugh every time. Lil wayne? Do you kids listen to anything besides the Top 10 countdown on MTV???? I thought I was stupid in 5th grade but then I quit watching MTV and realized how horrible it has become over the past 10 years. btw im 24.
LIL WAYNE BLOWS!!! GET OFF MY TV AND INTERNET YOU LOSER.. ROT IN JAIL WITH YOUR TALENTLESS MARKETING BS RAP!
School yourself kid....
Shad – A Good Name, Shad – Yaa I get it, Shad – The Old Prince Still Lives at Home, copy and paste those.
Why should the greatest rapper in the world be in jail he does what he does because thats how he makes his music
Because he broke the law, obviously. The law is supposed to apply to us all, 'greatest rapper in the world' or not.
Greatest rapper alive? REALLY? Maybe you should turn off MTV and listen to Immortal Technique or Jedi Mind Tricks. This guy is a pop star, not a rapper.
hahahaha... Lil' Wayne is a good rapper. Immortal Technique is ok, but not as good as Wayne. Jedi Mind Tricks... is it the 90's again? man, that decade just won't go away. hahahaha... JMT is pretty terrible.
You're either trolling or a complete idiot that doesn't know what talent is.
Both LW and IT are tools.
>>greatest rapper in the world.
disregard this folks he's trolling.
Best rapper in the world is Jay-Z. Then you can go listen to Nas, Scarface, The Roots, Shad (from Canada is amazing)....Lil Wayne is a pop star, not a hip hop artist at all that's for sure.
Lil Wayne is not the "greatest rapper" unless you like "industry produced artists" that cant speak complete sentences that talk about nothing of substance. Where has music gone? It has been hijacked by appropiationatist and those being used to dumb us down? I cant listen to lil wayne or jeezy ( an others) more than 30 seconds before I get annoyed either by the unoriginal beats, the rhymes that were written in one minute or the mumbling and whiny voice that they have. I wont deny he has had a few catchy beats/with a good hook buts as far as overall he is subpar at best. All he talks about is rims, cash, getting ass and ego. I cut off the radio a long time ago. People over 29 know what I am saying unless you are caught up in pop culture and your standards are low. There is no Comparing him to a dougie fresh, kool moe dee, ll cool j, rakim..lil wayne sit down ..your music is dumbing down the kids that are listening to it.
lil wayne is a thug 4 life and he should be kept in jail for a few more years
thirty days for an mp3 player? Unless he was using it as a weapon or stole it that seems excessive
yea i totally agree..most inmates have worse things..here he has an mp3 and is keeping to himself!
See, something LW has not learned, there are rules, and the rules are to be obeyed. In prison it doesn't matter how "cool" you are, break the rules, face the punishment.
That's what he gets for using a Zune...
I dont believe I can use profane language on this reply, but he broke the law to begin with. He had contraband, prison is a punishment, not a vacation.
It's not the point that it was only a MP3 player. He broke with prison rules. THAT'S the WHOLE point!
lol @ 2nd amendment
lol most prison inmates are caught with shanks or makeshift tat machines or makeshift cellphones, lil wayne is caught with an mp3 player, headphones and a charger.....speaks volumes about what's on his mind while he's in that cage
I seriously doubt anyone has ever been caught with 'makeshift' cellphones. Some of those guys can get pretty creative though, so who knows.
That sounds depressing.
I kinda feel bad for him, but he shouldn't have had the MP3 charger/headset with him...
Lil Wayne was thrown in to jail for valid reasons; gun possession seems pointless outside the realm of law enforcement and personal defense. The item's called "contraband" function as his means to a living. As a musician he has full right to pursue a profession outside the jail regardless of the dangers a set of headphones could impose. He should be set free of the confinement and be allowed to listen to music.
i just feel bad for the criminals who are also celebrities
@ jiggaman: Wow he's a "hardened thug"? Really?!?! Why? He hasn't murdered anyone or robbed anyone. Would you label Lindsay Lohan a thug, she stole a SUV and basically kidnapped the occupants, plus she's been in and out of jail?
I feel bad for all the people that bought into the idea that he is talented.
@Jason As far as his "right" to pursue a profession, the key words are outside the jail.
Are you people really kidding me? Forget he is a musician, he lost all those rights when he was convicted of a felon. He has no more rights in the eyes of the law. Should he be afforded more privileges then other inmates? The bottom line is he is a thug, just take a close look at him and read some of his comments out there online. He has no respect for any authority and thinks he can make up his own rules. I hope other inmates are making him their #$%#%. Serves him right. He will either end up back in prison down the road or dead.
I agree, but he is a celeb and they usually give them special items. He getting out next month anyways...don't i know you though?
He rants and raves about being a gangster... well he will be dealt with like a gangster. Prison is prison. To think you're better than the other inmates is a joke. He may be a celebrity out in the free world but in prison he's just another inmate. As for his music, well, I'd say he's made a few good hits. But I wouldn't call him the greatest rapper... no where near it. You must be pretty young or very stupid to feel sorry for him. He is what he is... a pot smoking punk with no respect for the minds of our youths. Hope he screws up again and extend his sentence a couple more years. Maybe he'll improve himself by reading the truth, The Bible.
If that is not a set-up, I don't know what is. Why did they wait until his last 30 days to put him in confinement for something he got caught with a few months ago? Why not then? He is going to be confined for 30 days with no human contact, then released back into wild world. Someone wants him to enjoy his freedom too much, because he'll be so glad to be free, he will do something stupid like get a drug charge like T.I. did. So they can put him back in jail even longer. That is low-down and dirty. I hope Lil Wayne is smarter than that. He needs to chill-out when he gets out. They are waiting for him to screw up again.
@OldSchool: There was an article a few months back about Lil'Wayne and him actually taking to Jesus and the Bible...
Ok most of yu are clueless....
Wayne is a nerd who happened to go to prison for getting too into character
He is simply an amazing artist poet and personality
As far as hip hop heads getting upset because hes not their favorite, saying hes not the best...No one compares Rembrandt Picasso or Rockwell and say one is better because it is pointless... They have each put their respective stamp on their artistic genre and deserve to be respected if not liked. Hip Hop is art please dont forget that. Art is expression... whatever that expression may be. Avid being an ignorant fool by displaying your narrow-mindedness to all. If you do not appreciate a certain form of art... then move on... the truly enlightened will learn what others find fascinating and learn the nuances of a certain brand or flavor... The Human brain needs to understand its own prejeduces if we are to evolve further as a species.
Lolz anyone who says Lil Wayne is a hardened thug is an idiot... He's been rapping since he was 12...and Basically RICH since he was 16. There is nothing Thug about that dude. Rap is just entertainment..he's never murdered, robbed, or even really sold drugs like he claims. Yeah he maybe has a little but that's nothing different than your local suburban kid selling marijuana at high school. Don't get caught up in the hype people.
Lil Wayne is a criminal street gang member who found that he could profit on music. He has operated outside of the boundaries of polite society and this is just another example of his outright disregard of the rules and laws set in place. No matter how trivial the infraction may seem to some people, it is this flagrant disregard of the rules that keep gang members in trouble. They feel owed something when nothing has been truly earned. "Tell me who you walk with and I will tell you who you are!"
Since when does talking over music make you a 'musician'? Apparently that makes William Shatner a virtuoso.
I don't feel sorry for him...Approx. 3 years ago we paid him to perform in Shreveport, LA..We had a sell out crowd..When it was his time to perform he refused to come out on stage unless we come up with more money-He took us hostage and we didn't fall for it. We told him no deal he was paid good money. To make a long story short, we reimbursed patrons the ticket they bought. He is a sorry loser in the music industry and the thug world. Better think twice before you hire and pay him to perform...lesson learned!!!!!!!!!!!!! BUM
Oh Boo Hoo. They need to put him in a cell with Bubba. He will get a new definition for booty call.
He rants and raves about being a gangster... well he will be dealt with like a gangster. Prison is prison. To think you're better than the other inmates is a joke. He may be a celebrity out in the free world but in prison he's just another inmate. As for his music, well, I'd say he's made a few good hits. But I wouldn't call him the greatest rapper... no where near it. You must be pretty young or very stupid to feel sorry for him. He is what he is... a pot smoking punk with no respect for the minds of our youths. Hope he screws up again and extend his sentence a couple more years. Maybe he'll improve himself by reading the truth, The Origin of Species
....how can you feel sorry for this A__Clown?!
FREE WEEZY ! ! YOU SHOULD ALL GO TO JAIL FOR THIS
ya that was stupid
