Lil Wayne Has A New Job In Prison To Watch Over Suicidal Inmates

Lil Wayne makes his living as the bestselling rapper on the planet, but while serving his year-long jail sentence at New York’s Rikers Island, Weezy has entirely new job: keeping watch over suicidal inmates. Antonia “Toya” Johnson, the mother of one of Wayne’s children, tells Us Weekly, “Wayne has a job. They got him on suicide watch for other prisoners. He watches the crazy prisoners and makes sure they don’t kill themselves.” Finding himself in a 9-to-5, albeit in prison, Weezy shares a similar complaint with much of the working population. “He likes the job even though they don’t pay him much,” Toya says of the Young Money multimillionaire. Toya adds that Lil Wayne is adjusting well to prison life, and getting along with his fellow inmates. He’s even managed to avoid getting a haircut.

Via Rolling Stone, and it’s good to see Wayne is getting along fine in prison… but I wonder how much he gets paid for doing that job ❓

Update: Antonia Carter has tweeted that this story is total bullcrap: I’m angry this morning : -( who told US weekly to say I told them Wayne have a job…I never said that to them…people r Crazy!

  • Danny this isn’t true. Not long ago Toya posted on her Twitter that she was very angry that someone had told the US weekly that she had said that and she said she didn’t. It has jus gone on her Twitter take a look her Twitter is antoniacarter.

  • Waynesgirl69

    Thats my baby!

  • Danik

    FREE WEEZY!!! GJ

  • DirtyBurky-209

    ok well my personal thoughts are that wayne will go back to rapping abou tha hood once he gets out. any real fan will agree with me on this. wayne is a god to me. but he has completely turned on himself and changed who he is. for what? tha money. i think he is prolly gonna find recruits for YOUNG MONEY ENT. while in jail considering Rikers is where bloods originated from in New York. i think that his time is goin to change him for tha better so that we can hav tha real Lil Wayne back.

  • Camee

    This isn’t true. They twittered that this was false!
