article imageLil Wayne released after serving eight months in Jail

By Leo Reyes     Nov 5, 2010 in Entertainment
Grammy award-winning rapper Lil Wayne got his freedom back after serving eight months at the Rikers Island jail in New York .
While serving his one-year term, the popular rapper went solo over a month ago for violating prison rules.
The popular rapper was caught in possession of contraband item inside his cell last May and after further investigations, jail authorities confirmed he has violated his jail term.
The contraband item found in his possession was a charger and headphones for a digital music player stashed in a potato chip bag in his cell last May.
The items are considered contraband, as inmates can listen to music only on radios and headphones sold at the jail commissary.
Lil Wayne was sentenced to a year imprisonment for illegal gun possession.
The charge stemmed from a 2007 traffic stop of his tour bus in New York when authorities said they smelled marijuana, and as they approached, he tossed aside a bag with a loaded .40-caliber handgun.
The New Orleans native served his term in just eight months for good behavior despite his one month solitary confinement for illegal possession of music gadgets.
"I was never scared, worried nor bothered by the situation" behind bars, Lil Wayne said Tuesday through Weezythanxyou.com, a website he set up to give fans a glimpse of his life in jail.
Myfoxny.com reports:
Wayne had the top-selling album in the country earlier this month. He's on the president's iPod. He's on the charts with two singles and a collaboration on a third. He's on Facebook with updates for the more than 14 million people following them. He is, in every respect, on.
In an interview this week on 96.1 KISS FM, former President Bill Clinton shared his hopes that one of hip-hop's biggest stars would have "a good life now" post-prison, Bombox.com reports.
