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!
