Lil Wayne Caught With Unauthorized Contraband

Lil Wayne is doing all that he can to maintain in jail. Apparently that includes working on his music without regard to the rules of his prison.

According to the Village Voice, Wayne was caught yesterday (May 11) at Rikers with unauthorized earphones and a charger hidden inside of the garbage can in his cell. An MP3 player that went along with it was found hidden in the cell of another inmate.

In an interview earlier this year Weezy told Rolling Stone that he planned to keep working in prison: “I’ll have an iPod, and I’ll make sure they keep sending me beats.”

As previously reported, a prison guard at Rikers Island, was fired last month for allegedly spying on Lil Wayne. According to New York’s Daily News, Negron is preparing a federal suit against New York City. She claims that union big wigs made her say that she was gawking at the New Orleans superstar, while on the job. —Brooklyne Gipson

    They should let him have his ipod. It’s not like he smuggled in narcotics or weapons.

    • $yk

      The MP3 player can be used as a weapon (headphone wires for strangulation, unit broken up and sharpened).

      • HNIC

        This is true. Point taken. But, we’re talking about Lil Wayne here, not a hardened, lifer/killer. Although, I guess that under the wrong circumstances, in a life or death situation, anyone has the capacity to become a killer, if pushed to that limit, or given the opportunity (if you’re not wrapped to tight, or if you have a motive, or just simply trying to prove yourself). So, again, I see your point.

          No doubt H.

          At least Wayne already has weed carriers in there for stashing purposes.

          Notice how they had the unit and he had the accessories.

    Hate to bust your chops but there is not any type of “authorized” contraband in jail, that is why they call it contraband. If somebody already pointed this out, sorry.
