Lil Wayne’s love for music has sent the chart-topping rapper in solitary confinement, after a pair of headphones and an MP3 charger were found in his jail cell on Rikers Island.
The rapper was found with the headphones and a charger for an MP3 player, while another player was hiding the MP3 player for the internationally known rapper.
According to TMZ.com, the rapper has been placed in punitive segregation, will have less interaction with inmates and must stay in solitary confinement for up to 23-hours-per day.
The rapper, born DeWayne Carter Jr., is now only allowed to receive one personal phone call a week and one hour for recreational time. Also, when he is out of cell, his time is restricted to visitors and religious services.
During an acceptance speech at the 2010 BET Hip-Hop Awards, Cash Money Records’ CEO Bryan “Birdman” Williams stated that Lil Wayne would be released on November 4th 2010.
Lil Wayne’s new album I Am Not A Human Being recently hit #1 on the iTunes charts. The physical release is due in stores on October 12th.
