Lil Wayne Finally Goes to Jail

Lil Wayne

After three delays, Lil Wayne has been sentenced to one year behind bars.

The rapper, born Dwayne Carter Jr., appeared in a Manhattan courtroom on Monday (March 8) where he was placed in handcuffs and taken into custody to start serving his term immediately. He plead guilty in October to attempted gun possession and admitted to having a loaded weapon on his tour bus in 2007.

The Grammy winner will serve his time in a city jail as opposed to a state prison and could be released in around eight months with good behavior.

So how did one of hip-hop’s most famous faces spend his last days of freedom? Shooting more music videos and bowling with his Young Money affiliate Lil Twist.

Weezy also took time to congratulate Precious star Mo’Nique on her Oscar win for Best Supporting Actress in one of his last tweets. “Kongradz monique!……..i go in tomorrow…thx 4 the prayers,” he wrote.

“Law is mind without reason. ……………..I’ll return” were his parting words to his Twitter followers.

    He will be missed. he is a major part of the hip-hop/rap group. It is sad to see such a good person go to jail for something that shouldn’t be such a crime. N.W.A. said it most correctly. “F*ck the Police!!!”

    RECALL BLOOMBERG!

    NYC rappers (Jae Millz is a good starting point) need to circulate a petition to have Mayor Bloomberg face a recall election…if it succeeds, the sky’s the limit when it comes to who’s gonna run!

    I really dislike seeing and hearing about people being locked up in prison. I hope this experience makes Wayne stronger in all aspects of life. I wish his family, friends, and loyal followers(fans) peace and continued strength during this difficult. Know that a man built on character could never broken by system. God bless the Carter family.

    i don’t know why everyone is blaming the ‘cops’ and the ‘law’ and such. You’re a gangsta rapper at the top of your game. Right or not you know the police are going to be looking at you. You shouldn’t be near any guns in the first place. You’re a gansta rapper at the top of your game. You don’t need protection, and if you really do that’s why you buy bodyguards. We need to remind some of these guys that they don’t live in the ‘hood anymore.

    Hip-hop will get a lot more conservative POVs in the time to come (it’s no coincidence that all these gun charges and tax problems are surfacing just now)-and I know why-because the president hip-hop helped elect wants to turn us into a gun-free state (where guns are outlawed, only outlaws get guns!)

    hey
    I`m a fan from Belgium. Yooo peaceee tooo Belgium. I don`t know of somebody of Young Money or Cash Money Company can read this. Its too bad that weezy is lock up. But I hope that he will use all his time too work one a new album that will blow up the whole world. An album more greater then the Carter 3. So the 8 months behind bars weren`t for nothing. Peaceee out. One Love

  79. Beeeeeeeeee

    Are you guys kidding me? You all think he is the best? Is there something wrong with you people.. He is has degraded rap/hip hop.. To people who don’t know rap, they think of Wayne and automatically think of money, hoes and bitches. That’s not rap.. You want rap, modern rap.. Listen to Immortal Technique, Psycho Realm or Tech Nine.. But you people are into mainstream rap. Not underground rap.. So i don’t expect you small minded brainwashed people to listen to me…

    I used to be a real big fan of Weezy,until he start using auto-tune,and start wearing skinny jeans,so hopefully he does some thinkin while he’s in there,and realizes that auto-tune killed rap,and that he should go back to dressing like a real G !! so he should quit using auto-tune and quit wearing skinny jeans and get back on his grind…and make ‘Tha Carter IV’ auto-tune free !!! :)

    I think It’s a shame that he’s in jail. But this will give him time to write more songs and when he comes out he could possibly have a whole album of songs. even if he doesn’t write songs. He will come out of prison a better person. Prison will only make him stronger.. if possible. I am looking forward to his return. Till then, I’ll be thinking about you weezy ! woot.
