Letter #09: I’m Back

What’s poppin?!

By now I’m guessing that you all have heard about my recent relocation to the bing, which is punitive segregation. Basically, no T.V., no radio, no snacks/junkfood, and one phone call a week. This punishment has been handed to me for my earlier MP3 incident. I admit, I fu#ked up and now I must deal with the consequences. As I write this, I only have 25 days left, and it’ll be even less than that when you read this. So honestly, I’m fine. Obviously, this gives me a lot of time to myself and a lot of alone time with my thoughts, which can be creatively dangerous. I do miss being able to hear from my family everyday but once a week will have to suffice. To them, I apologize. I’m still able to receive mail so reading and responding is still a huge part of my day. I’d like to thank everyone that sent me B-Day cards and wishes… that was terrific. You all are wonderful, simply wonderful.

Well anyways, I just wanted you all to know that I’m good and I’ll be good! But at the end of the day, I did it all for music!!! By the way, thanx for downloading the I Am Not A Human Being album. And if you haven’t done so already, please do! And if you have, do so again! When I get out I’m going to put the album in stores and shoot more videos for it. Which songs should I shoot videos to? Also, we will be adding bonus songs and packaging the newNino Brown DVD with the in store album! You’re welcome.

Talent is best nurtured in solitude… Be home soon!

Lil Wayne moved to punitive segregation at Rikers Island

October 5, 2010 1 comment

Grammy Award-winning international hip hop artist Lil Wayne (born DeWayne Carter) was accused of breaking jail rules and will be moved to “punitive segregation” for a month.  Headphones and a charger were found in Wayne’s cell in May.  The equipment was hidden inside of a potato chip bag that was placed in a trash can.

Prison officials say for the next month, Wayne will be confined to his cell 23 hours a day with the exception of visits and showers.  Other than that he will not be allowed to socialize with other inmates, not even during his one hour of recreation that he will receive once a day.

His phone access will go from once a day to once a week, with the exception of phone calls to his lawyer.

He will also lose his television access.

Lil Wayne and no television access means he will have more time to write.  A month’s worth of writing for him will eventually lead to more material for his catalog.

The rapper plead guilty in October 2009 to weapons charges.  He admitted to being in possession of a loaded semi-automatic gun on his bus back in 2007.

Wayne is received a one-year sentence for the charge.  He expected to serve eight months and released in November for good behavior despite the weapons charge.
