Lil Wayne Completes Riker’s Island Prison Term

Lil Wayne is a free man after serving eight months of a one year jail sentence on gun possession charges.

Wayne (Dwayne Carter), completed his time earlier today at 8:35 AM. He began his sentence on March 8.

Wayne’s release date had been the subject of conflicting information throughout the week. The November 4 date was said by a prison official to have been delayed until Friday (November 5). However, Wayne’s original release date was upheld.

Wayne’s time in jail was marked by several infractions ranging from smuggling in headphones to meeting secretly with a prison guard. Both violations resulted in Wayne being sent to solitary confinement, and the guard being suspended for a week without pay.

This weekend, Wayne is rumored to make a guest appearance at Drake’s Las Vegas concert. (November 6). He will have a welcome home celebration on Sunday (November 7) at a strip club.

At press time, Lil Wayne has not delivered his first public statement.

**********************************************************************

Here comes the real challenge. Has Lil Wayne and his crew learned anything since his time away from jail? Only time will tell.

In recent years, Lil Wayne has been prolific is his music output. I expect him to hit the ground running again. He doesn’t have his hand in as many outside ventures as T.I., so I don’t think he’ll struggle with his music like Tip did during this last run.

Are you happy Lil Wayne’s back?

  1. He had enough music out to keep his name in people’s minds… if anything he’ll probably have a renewed focus and hit the studio even harder. I know I would.
