Lil Wayne Sent to Solitary Confinement over MP3 Player

Lil Wayne Sent to Solitary Confinement over MP3 Player
For the first time in a while, things truly seemed to be looking up for Lil Wayne. The rapper, whose I Am Not a Human Being album was released digitally last week, and his Young Money cohorts have been making some big plans for his proposed release from prison at the start of November. Earlier this week, however, Weezy's prison stay took a turn for the worst when he was busted with banned items in his cell.

According to TMZ, Lil Wayne was caught with a pair of headphones and a charger for an MP3 player in his prison cell. An inmate was said to be hiding the actual MP3 player for him. If this happened in a high school class, it might result in the objects being confiscated. But the higher-ups at Rikers Island are taking it much worse, forcing Wayne to spend the remainder of his stay in solitary confinement.

Allegedly, this means he'll be forced to spend up to 23 hours a day in an isolation cell, without any interaction with his fellow inmates. He'll also be cut down to one personal phone call a week, and out-of-cell time for religious services and visitors.

Lil Wayne is expected to be released on November 5, although this latest stunt could interfere with that.
