Lil Wayne is so amazing. When I saw a headline this morning saying that Wayne had been caught in jail with “contraband”, of course my mind went to the worst things possible: weapons or drugs. But no. What Wayne was busted for was setting up a bootleg iPod for himself with a watch that played mp3s and some shitty headphones.
From the NY Daily News:
“He was found with a charger for an MP3 player and unauthorized earphones,” in his Rikers Islan cell, a source said.
Authorities seized the music pieces at 8 a.m. after a prison rat tipped off officers, who found the music contraband in foil and a bag stuffed in Lil Wayne’s trash.
A subsequent search found another inmate in the same wing with the accompanying music player, sources said.
Wayne got busted for trying to listen to music in jail! And if you’ve seen The Carter you know that Wayne doesn’t even really listen to other people’s music, he just keeps creating more of his own. Was Wayne busted trying to make a new album in the slammer? I think that might be the case! Genius!
Oh, and this has been out there for awhile, but I just wanted to remind y’all that you can send Wayne fan mail, Christmas cards and legal treats while he’s locked up:
