27-year-old rapper Lil Wayne told Rolling Stone in February, “I’ll be still rapping in there, have a gang of raps ready when I come home.”
Lil Wayne began serving in NYC’s Rikers Island jail in March after pleading guilty to attempted criminal possession of a weapon in October 2009. He admitted to keep a loaded semiautomatic gun on his bus in 2007.
We’re not sure if Lil Wayne had read the fine print of what constitutes contraband at Rikers when he talked with Rolling Stone shortly before being incarcerated. “I’ll have an iPod, and I’ll make sure they keep sending me beats.”
The Associated Press reports that “the Grammy Award-winning rapper faces potential discipline after jail officers found a charger and headphones for a digital music player stashed in a potato chip bag in his cell Monday, city Correction Department spokesman Stephen Morello said.”
The player was found in another inmate’s cell nearby.
Apparently inmates are only allowed to listen to music on radios and headphones sold at the jail commissary. With this infraction, who knows if Tha Carter III will be out on good behavior in November. We hope so.
