Lil Wayne Placed in Solitary Confinement

With just a month left on his jail sentence, Lil Wayne is now facing some trouble at Rikers Island. The multi-platinum selling spitter will be spending the next four weeks in solitary confinement.

According to New York’s Daily News, Weezy will be out of contact with other inmates for up to 23 hours a day until his November 4 release. The punishment reportedly stems from an incident back in May when officers found headphones and an MP3 charger on Wayne. The actual MP3 player was later found with another inmate. “He’s not in an area where he is mingling with other inmates—ever,” a Correction Department source said, according to the Daily News.

The more than three-month delay between the crime and the punishment occurred because, with limited space, priority for solitary confinement is placed on inmates who have committed violent acts.

The Young Money leader also had his phone rights knocked down to just one call per week.

    Before he released his last album, he went to jail. When he releases the next one, he goes to the hole…

    This is pretty much a joke. Weezy will be out in less than one month. What’s the point of this???

    Let’s just hope Weezy is smarter than T.I.

    This is good don’t get me worng i love Lil Wayne. This way he has more time to work on his rap, in fact this is how we should let him be release him once are year for 3 months to work on a cd than put him back.(Am just joking by the i don’t need internet gangster on my s**t)

  • pretty_kinah

    just fuckn let him live his fuckn life in let him be what he was born to be the best rapper alive

  • El Tico Loco

    Wayne is looking smarter than TI right now because he never claimed to be a changed man. If he ever goes back in or extends his stay, nobody will be heartbroken or surprised, he just wants to live whatever he sees his life as being what it is.

    PS. He has to kill a lot of rappers to be the best rapper alive.

    • DaTruth

      Indeed, may not be the best in his own clan.

  • jondoe

    @el tico loco yeah thats real talk

  • cliff

    This is standard procedure in most prisons. I worked in one. When an inmate is on his last days, he is placed alone. It keeps trouble away. Believe me, he ain’t causing trouble.

  • mat rod


    solitary confinement? bullshit, yeah you found an mp3 player on him who the fuck cares? he is a platinum rap superstar, thats the only way he lived; music.

    anyone that works for Rikers Island: learn how to use your brain, and some logic, and learn how to do your fucking job, placing him in solitary confinement isn’t going to do shit.

    so all of you who run rikers, fuck you and suck my dick trace me down personally pussy ass bitches.

    (In my personal opinion)

  • zayzkidd

    Go head mat rod! You too gangsta for t.v.

  • flavorblade

    Smart move; away from the last day haters by being in solitary. People; the prison is doing it for Wayne’s own protection (and the warden’s job) the MP3 thing is just cover. Wake-up.
