Lil' Wayne Opens Up About Jail

Wow. Regardless of how you feel about him, this is definitely going to be a fascinating read

The latest issue of Rolling Stone features an article with Lil' Wayne, who opened up for the first time about the eight months he spent behind bars at Riker's Island, his job there as a suicide prevention aid, and how he kept himself busy!

According to Weezy, he became so good at Uno that the other inmates didn't want to play with him anymore!

He explains:

"I'd bust a n***a's ass at Uno. We gamble for phone time. I'd take n***a's commissary: Lemme get them cookies, lemme get them chips, get that soup. They'd be like, 'Oh, we thought you were asleep.' Like you can't look inside my cell and see that I'm right there! We ain't got no doors!"

The rapper also revealed that he read a variety of biographies, on artists like Jimi Hendrix, Anthony Kiedis, Joan Jett, and Marvin Gaye…before turning his focus to the Bible:

"[Kiedis'] Scar Tissue was really good. I also read the Bible for the first time. It was deep! I liked the parts where some character was once this, but he ended up being that. Like he'd be dissing Jesus, and then he ends up being a saint. That was cool."

Finally, he opened up his worst month there, which happened to be his last, because he got stuck in solitary confinement for being caught with an iPod charger in his room. He also had a watch with an mp3 player on it, but was lucky enough to have another inmate pretend that it was his so Weezy wouldn't get in any more trouble.

He says:

"He was a solid n***a. Shout-out to Charles…Solitary was the worst. No TV. No radio. No commissary. Basically you're in there 23 hours a day."

Despite the light tone in which he talks about his time, we sense that the entire experience has really changed his outlook on quite a bit, and we're very interested to see if it manifests itself in the next material he produces.

Thoughts??

    Underneath the brave facade, Weezy dealt with the trauma of sexual abuse as a child, and I feel that may be why he continued to hit the syrup.
    But there's no doubt that he is a talented young man. Don't let the horrid tats fool you, he is sensitive, and a prolific songwriter. But he's not a kid anymore, and he can pull up his pants, stop showing off the undies, and stop using the n-word. I'm happy he got the grilles removed from his teeth. Small steps, Weezy.



  2. 2

    So it's still ok to use the n-word ? i'm confused.



  3. 3

    Oh wow you are so "hardcore". Who brags about going to jail, oh that's right a black person. These "people" deserve to be living in their ghettos like the rats they are, not making millions for mumbling over dance beats. Oh and he is disgusting looking. I can't believe woman who would have sex with that hideous troll.



  4. 4

    This UNTALENTED criminal needs to stay behind bars. This is also the UGLIEST RS cove



  5. 5

    WTF??? Ewwwww, he looks horrible with all those tattoos, well, he's horrible without anything but this is too much! + HE IS SO STUPID!!!!!



  6. 6

    This is the UGLIEST creature i have every seen!!!!
    Missing link!
    PURE trash!
    America is messed up if people look up to this man!



  7. 7

    This UNTALENTED criminal needs to stay behind bars. This is also the UGLIEST RS cover i've ever seen. I almost threw up when I looked at it,
    GAG



  8. 8

    that has got to be the ugliest man alive

    Awe, he seems like such a nice young n***a…oops, i mean nice young man



  10. 10

    You'd think all that money could buy him a better education. And if he can say n**ger that much then I should be allowed to.



  11. 11

    He looks like Predator.



  12. 12

    he has no talent. everytime he realeased a new album he only gets one hit. he looks so ugly. his voice is so annoying.



  13. 13

    Oh come on now. That is just freakin ridiculous. Stop using the n word like that. It's bad enough when white people do it and twice as bad when black people do. And pull your pants up. That is no longer considered cool. People just laugh at that. Other than that, I'm glad to hear he started reading. The gospels are the best.



  14. 14

    to bad with all that "reading" supposedly done he didn't acquire some intelligence to speak properly and understand the demeaning nature behind the word "ni**a" - eh, you can take the kid out of the hood but you can't take the hood out of the kid (and that's not a good thing)



  15. 15

    Why does it matter what he looks like? You all are so shallow. Are some of his songs stupid? Yes. Sometimes, he writes about dumb shit, but other times his lyrics actually do mean something. He may not be the best musician around, but obviously his music speaks to many many people, and he makes them happy. What he looks like should have no impact on his profession. Your negative opinions are NOT the only ones that matter. It seems like he learned something from his time in jail, and now it's time for him to step up and prove he's changed. Give him a chance.



  16. 16

    With all that money you would think he could afford to buy a belt.



  17. 17

    That's why they call it solitary confinement you stupid n***a.. Don't worry I'm sure you'll do something stupid again and go back to see "Charles".. Musta been your bum chum eh!!!.. Dumbass



  18. 18

    he's an overrated fool.



  19. 19

    Sooo gross. He should cover himself up, and put a bag over his head.



  20. 20

    Lol what a undercover homo! All these rappers are closet folk, I swear!



  21. 21

    "… dem bastards wrote all over me dammit!!…."



  22. 22

    If you can be bothered to do a little reading up on him you will find that he is actually very intelligent, always did well at school, took up an open university course etc. Don't judge someone by how they look cos you are clearly wrong.



  23. 23

    he looks like a has to take a dump



  24. 24

    why does how he look matter? and as for his talent, he's a rapper and obviously all of his fans appreciate and love his music. he's got SOME kind of talent to be a RS cover. i do agree he needs to pull up his pants… that wasn't cool… ever.



  25. 25

    Re: Laurenxx – If HE bothered to speak with any intelligence and showed a bit of class, people wouldn't think and speak so negatively of him.



  26. 26

    It is confusing, but apparently black people can still use the 'N' word but other ethnic groups should not. Stupid? Absolutely! Makes them look ignorant? Absolutely! And btw, that is one nasty looking man! Yuck!!



  27. 27

    when I see his tattoos.. all I can think of is ouch!! thats a lot of ink.. ihave 3 smaller tattoos and I couldnt even imagine the pain. On another note.. everyone will most likely bash wayne in their comments.. but despite his unattractivenes.. I like weezy!! yessir i do!



  28. 28

    Rolling Stone continues its shame spiral towards irrelevancy oblivion. Why would anyone put this idiot on the cover of a magazine aimed at young people?



  29. 29

    whats funny is… the people commenting on how ugly he is.. and how sucky his is… dont even matter.. he laughs all the way to the bank.. :D and im sure some of these weezy haters bop to his music in the clubs and tap their hands on the steering wheel when he comes on the radio.



  30. 30

    Re: Laurenxx – But you can judge them by how they present themselves. And by judging his poor grammar and the fact that he uses the N word that much means that he has no class and really isn't that intelligent. The man's a fool and should be sterilized.



  31. 31

    Yeah, I bet he is loose!

    It's disheartening to see Rolling Stone basically advertise gang-life on its cover photo. Wayne's gang-related tattoos are literally the most prominent thing on the cover. What kinda message does that send to kids? Especially high-risk youths. How many 13 year old kids see this picture and think, "Hmmm…Weezy's a Blood and now he's got millions and is on the cover of magazines." Really Rolling Stone editors??? You couldn't have photographed him in a shirt?? Irresponsible.



  33. 33

    Now that he is out of jail, what is he going to do to better himself and his community? Why is he still using the "N" word when it's supposed to be so offensive to the African Americans? Why is he still trying to look like a "gangsta" when he wants to be taken more seriously? He needs to grow up and stop trying so hard to keep it "real".



  34. 34

    Some African-Americans express considerable offense when referred to as a n***a by Caucasian people, but not if they are called the same by other African-Americans, or by some other minority, as a term of endearment



  35. 35

    This fool belongs in the museum of ugly linoleum patterns.



  36. 36

    Re: caroaber – Totally, totally agree with you. I typically feel there is no depth to rap but this man stands out as a unique talent…I was hoping that he would do so writing while he was in the clink. I would be interested to read his poetry or musings.



  37. 37

    Re: PeteJuggernaut – Pete, when you crack this case would you please go public with the denouement?



  38. 38

    Re: Widad Wood – There are plenty of factual insults to hail and aspersions to cast at Wayne, but unfortunately for you, Widad Wood, you are going to have to be more creative than calling him "Stupid" because THE GUYS IQ IS LIKE 180. I would challenge me on this info. too so I will go ahead and do like a proper research paper and cite sources. I saw it on the biography channel when they featured him. In his youth, Wayne had affiliations with the State and in assessing youths, IQ tests are commonly given.
