Lil Wayne Sent to Solitary Confinement

Lil Wayne is in trouble! The rapper was just reportedly sent to solitary confinement at Rikers Island for the remainder of his sentence.

According to the New York Times, Weezy broke the rules after stashing a charger and headphones for a digital music player in his cell earlier this year. Officials said the headphones and charger were found in May, tucked in a potato chip bag in a garbage can in the rapper's cell.

Correction Department spokesman Stephen Morello said Lil Wayne will be confined to his new cell 23 hours a day, with the exceptions of visits and showers, instead of being allowed to mingle with other inmates most of the day. He'll eat in his cell and won't get to socialize even during his hour a day of recreation. That means no TV or phone privileges either.

"Possession of contraband is serious," Morello said, “Though not as grave as violent offenses or being caught with a weapon, for example.”

But it wasn’t surprising when Weezy was caught with the paraphernalia, since he said he was going to keep working on his music while locked up.

In fact, his latest album comes out the same day he gets out—November 2nd. Guess solitary confinement was worth it for Weezy!
