Lil Wayne Moved To Solitary Confinement

With less than one month left before Lil Wayne is released from prison on good behaviour, he has been sent to solitary confinement for the rest of his time at Rikers Island. This is because Weezy was found with unauthorized electronics in his cell back in May. Tunechi won’t be able to socialise with other inmates, he will have to spend spend 23 hours a day in an isolation cell, only allowed one phone call per week, and cannot watch television anymore.

The rapper, jailed since March on a gun possession charge, was shipped to an isolation cell as punishment for previously getting nabbed with music-related contraband, Rikers Island sources said.

The platinum-selling star – who calls himself “Weezy” – will be confined to an isolation cell for up to 23 hours a day until his scheduled release on Nov. 4, the sources said.

Weezy won’t be going near other inmates during the rare moments when he is not locked down in a so-called “punitive segregation” cell – known as “The Bing” among Rikers Island jailbirds.

“He’s not in an area where he is mingling with other inmates – ever,” a Correction Department source said.

Lil Wayne, whose real name is Dwayne Carter, can blame his month-long loneliness on his love of music. Correction Department officers caught him with headphones and a charger for an MP3 player back in May.

Another inmate was found to be hiding the MP3 player itself.

Priority for punitive-segreation cells is given to inmates who commit violent infractions, so Rikers officials shipped Weezy off to The Bing when an opening became available yesterday.

Correction Department spokesman Stephen Morello confirmed Weezy’s transfer to punitive segregation Monday.

Lil Wayne was sentenced to a one-year hitch after getting caught with a loaded gun on his tour bus. He is expected to get sprung next month because his sentence was reduced for good behavior. –

    Josiah Lil Wayne has stated in his letters that he’s been writing again, because he can’t record.

  • Waynetastic72

    @Luiseezy F. Crazy I feel what your saying (no homo) but if it was a rumor wezzy would have told someone by now e.g. Mack Maine, Cortez Bryant, baby or even his family?

    Free wezzy until they free wezzy!

  • Why hasnt Drake or Birdman bail him out from prison.

    FREE WEEZY

    Dang he doesnt get to talk to nobody for 23 hours and only one call a week.

  • wiggy

    the reason why the mp3 was such a big deal is because of the charger and headphones. if it got into the wrong hands someone could strangle someone with it. when you go to jail they take your shoe laces homie.

  • c-meezy

    @josiah, dude you stupid bruh. If you read any of his letters he said he started writing again cause he can’t record in there. Free Lil Wayne

  • @WeezyFan ”WTF God damn what the fuck” Bail him out of prison? LOL he’s been sentenced to a year in prison 8months for good behavior, bailing people out of prison is when you first get arrested.

  • Luiseezy F. Crazy

    WEEELLL!!!!! there is a guy thats not inform @Josiah…and @Waynetastic72 i feel you too (no homo)..but as far as i know this rumor/fact just came out so i don’t think weezy knows we know. but maybe he will tell us ,on what could be his last letter.
