After being caught with headphones and an MP3 player charger this past May, Lil Wayne has been handed a delayed punishment for possessing the contraband materials in jail. The 28-year-old rapper will serve the final 30 days of his sentence on Rikers Island in isolation for up to 23 hours a day.
“He’s not in an area where he is mingling with other inmates—ever,” a Correction Department source tells the New York Daily News. He will have to forfeit his social activities until he gets off Rikers Island, and even when he is released from the isolation cell, he will still be segregated from other inmates.
Weezy, who will be sequestered in what Rikers prisoners call “The Bing,” will scale back phone calls to one personal conversation per week, but be able to enjoy a private recreation hour where he will be able to work out on his own.
The Young Money honcho is expected to be released from jail on November 4 followed by the “Welcome Home Weezy” concert the next day.
