Breaking News: Lil Wayne Pleads Guilty to Gun Possession, Faces a Year in Jail

Lil Wayne is headed to the big house. Earlier today (October 22) Weezy pleaded guilty to a second-degree attempted gun possession charge in a Manhattan courtroom, surprisingly switching his original plea of innocence.

According to the Associated Press, the New Orleans rapper is expected to receive about one year behind bars, instead of the mandatory three-and-a-half-year bid that New York places on gun possession charges.

Weezy is free on bail while awaiting his sentence date in February.

As previously reported, the Young Money rapper was just in court yesterday, where prosecutors claimed that they discovered a small amount of DNA evidence linking Wayne to the weapon.

The Grammy award winning MC was arrested in 2007 in Columbus Circle, following a concert at the Beacon Theatre. After smelling marijuana coming from his tour bus, officers pulled the vehicle over and allege to have found a .40 caliber semi-automatic loaded gun belonging to the rapper. –Elan Mancini

    ^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^

    OK ! Maybe I got this wrong. Could someone explain to me again what “mandatory” means. Because if it’s what I think it is, then this don’t make no sense.

    I guess gun possession is the flavor of the week. Unpaid taxes, lawsuits from lawyers, now gun possession. I know, TI been on this before it was all trendy, but I notice a trend. Watch out for those Bentley’s repo and unpaid speeding tickets. That’s next.

    Raysor is on a spree…

    • geico lizard

      In NYC “mandatory” means that is how much time you will serve if you arent famous or rich. If you are famous or rich they will work out alot less time than 3 years. Plax would have gotten 1 year too if he had plead guilty right away.

Then he has to wait until February, shit that would fuck up someones mind. In, out, spit, punch, sqeal then nutttttttttttttttt. Suddenly all of the money, drugs and cars don’t meat SHIT.

    “And I’ll take Probation, I don’t want that T.I evict vacation” These dudes are gona have to clean up what they do. I’ve been there you take the plea deal so you don’t get raped, But the plea deal is raping you. take the bad or worse, witch one you want.

      i think he says “t.i. and vick vacation”

        yeah thats right, was going off memory. I haven’t heard the song in a min.

  • Grimey G

    Jail time may help his somewhat suspect street cred, but if he gets locked up he is going to be in protective custody. He may be safer but it’ll be boring as shit. I hope he doesn’t do a “going to jail” tour like TI and make 15 video, a tv show, and a million interviews all about going to jail.

    • stonyman

      I hope you understand TI did a lot of that as part of his community service he was required to do. If it keeps young kids out of jail then it can’t be all bad.

      • Grimey G

        I never said it was all bad, I’m well aware that TI helped a lot of kids and that is a good thing. However, prior to his sentencing he did at least 3 videos where he appeared in a jail in his prison uniform and countless interviews about it even when he wasn’t promoting anything. The show had great intentions an I believe he did it for the kids but he also bragged about his own 31 or whatever arrests and did a whole episode where say interviewed him mostly bout his troubles. I think he likes the fact that he has gotten in a lot of trouble and people think hes a badass. I’m a cop and I see alot of guys who are proud of their arrests and jail time. It gives them street cred and validates their ego

    “And I’ll take probation, I don’t want that T.I. & Vick vacation”

    Lyin’ ass dude… look what happened

  • geico lizard

    Birdman is a really bad business man. He has ONE fucking artist who makes real money on his label and he cant keep an eye on this guy. What happened to surrounding your artist with weedcarriers who will take the charge and keep him out of jail? Wayne still has the charged in Arizona to deal with. Wayne went from the new 2pac to the new DMX in under a year.

    • http://xxlmag.com PM

      Its how it works, they got a charge for everything. ex.. Say you kick a door in and take some shit. they hit you with criminal trespassing, criminal damage to property, burglary, prossion of stolen property. If you used any kind of tool to get into the house they throw aggravated on there and make it a felony. by the time you get to court they talk all that legal court talk make shit sound worse then it was. they offer you a plea deal and drop all the bs charges n stick you with the worse aggravated burglary.

      To sum it up plea deals make it easy for them but you still get fucked over.

      they got that charge for him because they can’t prove it was his. You got a bus full of niggas n they chose one to take the fall. he took a plea (witch is not smart in my opinion with all that real lawyer money he got)just to get it over with.

      • Grimey G

        Taking a plea is smart when he was looking at up to 7 if convicted. If he was found guilty he is at the DA’s mercy and can’t do shit about it. They gave Plaxico more than he would’ve gotten if he wasn’t famous so they could’ve made an example of Wayne. It’d be stupid to risk that kind of time.

  • http://yahoo.com oas

    We goin see if he bang like he say he do

  • mrchitown

    WAYNE grow up and stop trying to be cool….

    stop swagger jackin t.i at least be original if you wanna go to jail and fuck niggas do a different crime you faggot

  • LA DUDE

    G-UNOT KILLA has never been funy….Dude has been lampin’ for years too!!

    MOVE ON TOOL!!

  • I am legend

    Damn wayne u should of had somebody else 2 tote that hammer it aint no way my dna would be on that shit and im the reason the niggaz on the bus is eating good fucking good and livin it up because of my talent and im the 1 taking the fall IT AINT NO WAY IN FUCKIN HELL!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • $ykotic/Don McCaine

    Like I said yesterday he had to plea out. He would’ve blew trial.

    What’s obvious is they had him with the DNA evidence. Now he may get concurring sentences because this result hurts the AZ case.

    • $ykotic/Don McCaine

      And now with this and studying CMR/YM’s recent moves, they knew it was coming.

      Bring in others to get cheddar while dude is on hiatus.

  • Shotta International

    Well at least he will get sober and probably gain some much needed weight and stop scarein kids with his “seed of chucky” look.

  • ApolloKid551

    Wow what another marketing stunt, this really goin put him into another zone with the suburbon white kids & the mainstream wen he gets outs cause he got 2 do some time, hip-hop is getting worser & worser it should be an indicment on the hip-hop who promote bullshit like this its more serious things 2 attented 2 instend of hearing about how dumb nigga do some stupied shit like riding around new york city with a loaded gun knowing its hip-hop cops everywhere in ny watching him like an eagle so somebody in crew should have known this hell i know its hip-hop cops everywhere so its like he wanted 2 get caught so it can feed his media market machine at Universal & his persona as this wannabe blood hard ass nigga which is false, so this shit is a nigga thinking he is untouchable surrounding hiself with a bunch of dick riders & yes men, so lets talk about the forth quater in hip-hop it looks nice & deep with talent like Rakim, Clispe & Snoop so lets move on fron this nigga shit, peace 2 all rightous brothers, keep doing ya thing ya time will come….
