Lil Wayne Sentenced to Probation in AZ Drug Charge

Lil Wayne can breathe easy. A little over a week after accepting a plea deal for a 2008 drug charge in Arizona, the rap superstar was sentenced to three years probation today (June 30) via satellite in Yuma County Superior Court, reports Reuters.

As expected, the rapper—who is currently serving a one-year bid in New York’s Rikers Island for attempted criminal possession of a weapon—was spared jail time after entering a guilty plea to one count of possession of a dangerous drug . Under the terms of his agreement, charges for narcotics possession, weapons misconduct and possession of drug paraphernalia were dismissed.

“We’re quite glad that we were able to wrap everything up,” Wayne lawyer, James Tilson, told Reuters. “It’s a favorable plea agreement that will allow Mr. Carter to pursue his career.”

The rapper is expected to begin his Arizona sentence when he is released from Rikers in November. —Elan Mancini

    What fails The Carter II was certified Platinum by the RIAA so was The Carter III which sold about 2.88 million total get your facts straight. I’m really curious as to what fail there is with Wayne? Not to mention Young Money has been very successful with Drake and Minaj killing~! Weezy is definitly not a fail~!

    TWO FAILS
    A CRAPPY YOUNG MONEY COMPILATION ALBUM
    A CRAPPY EXPERIMENTAL ROCK ALBUM-REBIRTH

    THOSE TWO FAILS THAT TANKED CRITICALLY(POOr REVIEWS AND bad FAN ACCLAIM)AND MEDIOCRE SALES COMPARED TO HIS HYPE AND THE CARTER 3

    Those are the two failures

    I’m no hater Lil Wayne actually can rap and has good punchlines
    He just isn’t worth the hype as they are way more talented rappers underground that can murk him easily

    No classic albums and being spanked by every legend (Em and Jay-z)on all your tracks donot make you the best rapper in the world

    Shit I’d take Kanye’s first album over LIL WAYNE’S ENTIRE DISCOGRAPHY!
    Kanye actually is a musical genius despite dressing like a fag and being an arrogant asshole
    High quality albums and great production
    He deserves the hype!
    Weezy doesnot!

    rebirth wasn’t a failure at all. however, i believe if he is sober he will not be “sharper” a la eminem. it will be a monumental failure. when your not under the influence of drugs, you see the world the same. plus, he WILL go through a heavy depression, and he will doubt himself more than he ever did; with every single verse he spits. he will feel as if it’s not good enough, but more than likely is. he will have temper, he will shut other out. yup its gonna be rough for him. sorry weezy f. fans, i don’t think he can come on top like em did.
