No, not with a fellow inmate, but with his inner romantic…kind of.

While locked in his Rikers Island jail cell, Lil' Wayne wrote an album full of love songs…but not in the traditional way that you and I might know love, this is love, Wayne style:

Lil' Wayne Opens Up About Jail

Filed under: Legal MattersLil Wayne

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??

Wheezy Helps A Fan In Need, Buys Her Mother A Wheelchair!

Filed under: InspirationLil Wayne

This was so nice of him!

While Lil' Wayne was serving time in Riker's Island, he was constantly recieving letters from a fan in New Jersey, Ronda Austin. In her letters, which came once a week, she would tell him about her life and family, including her mother, who has been confined to a wheelchair for quite some time now.

After hearing about the women's plight, Wheezy, while still in prison, had his charitable foundation bring the woman a brand new motorized wheelchair, with his thanks for the family's support. And no one was more surprised than Ronda.

She told sources:

"I couldn't believe it. I never asked for nothing. I just told him all kinds of different things about me. I never even said I needed help."

As for her mother, Evelyn, the chair has given her a new lease on life, allowing her to finally leave her home and take strolls around the neighborhood and even take a trip to Atlantic City. She told sources:

"I pray for him every night thanking him for this chair."

When reached for comment about his most generous gift, Nina Packer, who heads Lil' Wayne's charitable foundation, would only say it was "something he was compelled to do."

Such a good deed. That's what the spirit of the season is all about!

Lil' Wayne Impregnated A Woman Before Rikers Island?

Filed under: Lil Wayne

lil wayne paternity test illegitimate child

Lil' Wayne probably prepared himself for a slew of challenges while serving at Rikers Island. One thing we're sure he didn't plan for was getting hit with a paternity suit while behind bars!

And yet…

Sources are reporting that while Weezy was in jail, a woman in Missouri came forward, claiming to be the grandmother of an 8-year-old girl Lil' Wayne father in 2002. The grandmother went so far as to obtain a court order for a paternity test, but with Wayne behind bars at the time, there was nothing to be done. The judge in the case ordered the test be postponed and the deadline for Weezy to prove the kid is or isn't his is December 9.

What's strange about this whole thing is that the grandmother wouldn't say how her daughter plays into this scenario or if she even knows about the test. In fact, the birth mother wasn't even listed on any of the documents.

Figure that one out!
