Unfortunately, my prediction that Lil Wayne would never actually wind up in jail was wrong and he began serving his sentence on March 10th. Wayne’s serving his prison time in New York (Rikers Island! Just like they talk about in rap songs and on Law & Order!), and has been warned by the guards not to be open about his fame and flat-out banned from signing autographs.
While this may seem like these restrictions were put in place to keep Wayne in check. “Lil Wayne is not a celebrity in here,” a rep from the Correction Officer’s Benevolent Association told TMZ. Damn. Kicking the man when he’s down.
Miss you, Wayne.
