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.
