Lil Wayne Kicks Off One-Year Jail Bid in Protective Custody

No more delays for Lil Wayne. The rap superstar was officially sentenced this afternoon (March 8) to one- year behind bars in Manhattan Criminal Court for a second-degree gun possession charge, before immediately starting his bid.

TMZ reports that Weezy will be in protective custody while serving his time in Rikers Island. The New Orleans-bred MC declined to offer any comment after Judge Charles H. Solomon delivered his sentence. While getting handcuffed, Wayne simply nodded to his Cash Money mentors, brothers Bryan “Birdman” and Ronald “Slim” Williams.

In comparison, chaos ensued as Wayne first pulled up to the court building, as photographers fought to snap the rapper’s last moments of freedom until 2011, according to MTV News. The Young Money General is expected to only serve eight out of the 12 months on good behavior.

Wayne was originally arrested in 2007 when a New York police officer caught Wayne with a weapon after boarding his tour bus. Last October he entered a guilty plea in order to receive lesser jail time. —Elan Mancini

      For what? For being a dumb fuck in possession of an unloaded paper weight, I mean handgun? Dude will be back in time for christmas, calm down sweetheart.

      If this was the real Gudda-Gudda then damn why you beefing with online “hate fans.” You probably should go worry about something realer like those in Haiti, chilli, or yourself. An no diss to Weezy but its about fucking time, if anything hopefully this will get him to realize that he is not a singer and shouldn’t use auto-tune but stick to rappin’. He’s good at that, but don’t use the auto-tune & his last cd was garbage, only track worth a listen to was Drop the World & it was only because he actually sounds like he took his time with the track & Eminem killed it like always.

    What are yall saying free Lil Wayne he had weapon,and when you have a weapon the intent is to harm others or defend your self, and knowing these type of bs rappers someone would have probably gotten hurt on some stupid gangster shit plus, he will probably get special treatment in jail.

    • RiZob

      you have people who have ACTUALLY killed and hurt people who serve less time. Wayne got a year for bullshit. i dont care what you call it or how you justify it, its a bs law they got up in ny, and its bs that someone can serve a year of they life for “the possibility of someone getting hurt” but ma’fuckas who have actually commited heinus crimes are sentenced to probation…

  • http://xxl All Dae

    I agree the a year in jail is to harsh a punishment for holding a empty pistol.

    Lil Wayne got the money to afford not to go to jail. I wounder if he’s in a rehab stay. Hence pc.

  • HipHopFive15

  • http://xxlmag.com ant

    aint no protective custody in there he still gotta be around other inmates, Ben rothleburger just caught another sexual assault case why is he still walking free, oh yeah forgot he white

    • Capital G

      “oh yeah forgot he white” – For real B? His skin color ain’t got shit to do with it,Roethlisberger wasn’t even charged, let alone convicted, THAT’S why he’s still walking free. Don’t forget, ya boy Weezy PLEAD out and took the year. He could of been “gangsta” and took his chances at trial. Get your facts straight homie.

      • http://www.bboycult.com $yk!

        Cap G what’s up homie?

        C/S he took the deal because he was gonna blow trial. Cats been saying he was PC-bound so I don’t see where/why people are surprised.

        I wonder which halfway house he’s going to?

        And where does Ben “I takes the p*ssy” Rothlesberger fit into this story?

        Again y’all Wayne fans better hope he don’t catch a concurrent sentence from the Arizona case.

  • Hey Dumb Fuck Ant

    Dumb ass Ant. He (Ben) just caught the case. Why has Wayne been walking free for 3 years?, some people are so fucking stupid. Black, white it doesn’t matter to me, but stupidity is was I’m against. And Ant you’re one dumb motherfucker.

  • av

    nah this is bullshit, people shouldnt go to jail for guns anyways. we got a constitutional right to have guns. had he went out shootin it all crazy, then yeah throw his ass in jail, but our rights are slowly being drained from us one by one. they threw wayne in jail to make a public point. i think him being in pc is f#cked up though. aint he been talking shit about pc?
