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.
