Lil Wayne Avoids Jail Time in AZ Drug Case

Lil Wayne had charges stemming from a 2008 arrest in Arizona dismissed recently when he agreed to enter a guilty plea with the Yuma County Superior Court.

As a result of the plea agreement, the Yuma Sun reports that the self-proclaimed greatest rapper alive is unlikely to serve further time upon release from his current bid at New York’s Rikers Island. Wayne, who is currently serving a one-year sentence at Rikers for weapons charges, appeared for Friday morning’s hearing via video feed and pled guilty to one count of possession of a dangerous drug.

Authorities claim to have found cocaine, Ecstasy and a handgun on Weezy’s tour bus when it was stopped by U.S. Border Patrol Jan. 22, 2008. Wayne had the charges for narcotics possession, weapons misconduct, and possession of drug paraphernalia dismissed in exchange for his plea.

According to the terms of the plea agreement, the New Orleans rapper will likely be sentenced to 36 months probation for the Arizona charge once he is released from Rikers. Official sentencing will occur June 30. —Calvin Stovall

      If in fact Boosie did kill someone, then the system ain’t doing shit to him. He decided to “keep it real” for the sake of his image. You expect for the system to roll over on a violent crime just because he’s a C-List rapper????

    Will ppl please stop with the “Free [Enter Celebrity of the Moment in Jail]“. If you want to use that phrase use it with ppl who are WRONGLY imprisoned not dumb ass rappers. When ppl said Free Mandela, Free Mumia, Free Leonard or other political prisoners it was for a real reason. The last person or ppl who deserved that statement were the Jena Six. It’s a outcry for justice not just some cool shit to say.

      these rappers have an chance to send a msg to the hood unlike any other form of media and all they can do is brag and lie about cocaine,murder, and material possessions. when was the last time any of the rappers who have been locked up did something positive for the black community? ps selling crack doesn’t put money back in the hands of the people.
