Rapper Lil Wayne has wound up in solitary confinement after he was found with headphones and a charger for an MP3 player in his jail cell.
Correction Department spokesman Stephen Morello confirmed the rapper had been put in the isolation area saying, “He’s not in an area where he is mingling with other inmates – ever.” Now Wayne will have to spend around 23 hours a day in solitary until he is released on November 4.
Lil Wayne began his jail time on March 8 after being sentenced to a year after being convicted of illegal weapons possession.
Back in May, DJ Scoob Doo revealed that Wayne was prepared to take a punishment for his prison “contraband”, including iPod earphones and a charger.
Scoob said Wayne revealed, “He said, ‘Yeah, they tried to bang me with that. But I can’t live without my music, Scoob. You know how it is, man. I needed my music. It’s all good; I had to take my lil slip up. I ain’t trippin’.”
