Lil Wayne’s prison sentence got a lot rougher when he was busted with a homemade MP3 player that he was using to help him write music while still in lockdown. He was placed in solitary confinement, a punishment that is usually reserved for the most dangerous/hard to handle criminals.
Yesterday, Wayne reached out to his fans on his blog to us all know how he’s doing:
“This punishment has been handed to me for my earlier MP3 incident. I admit, I f***ed up and now I must deal with the consequences. As I write this, I only have 25 days left [20 days at press time], and it’ll be even less than that when you read this. So honestly, I’m fine. Obviously, [solitary] gives me a lot of time to myself and a lot of alone time with my thoughts, which can be creatively dangerous.”
Anyone who saw The Carter knows that Wayne has probably been in that padded room writing some of the most insane shit that we’ll ever hear.
But considering Wayne’s rigged MP3 player incident is more like, rascal-y than criminal-y, don’t you think solitary is a little bit of a rough sentence? Not to mention a drain on our system’s resources. Save that shit for the Hannibal Lecters.
