Weezy Has Been Working Behind Bars
Lil’ Wayne, also known as Dwayne Carter, is serving an eight-month sentence for weapons possession. While in prison, Weezy says he’s been working out, dreaming up new raps and reading the Bible. Fans can follow his journey through his state prison stint on the Web site Weezy Thanx You. He did get himself into a little extra trouble for possessing an MP3 player, which is forbidden. That did get the rapper placed into solitary confinement, but it didn’t lengthen his sentence.
While in prison, Lil’ Wayne’s production team released “I Am Not A Human Being,” an album of the artist’s previously recorded music. The album is currently in the #1 position on the Billboard Rap Albums chart, having dislodged Eminem’s Recovery. It is not considered a follow up to Weezy’s Tha Carter series. Tha Carter IV is expected to be released in 2011.
It remains to be seen what will come out of Lil Wayne’s prison stint, but his producers and fans, and perhaps Lil Wayne himself are expecting a lot. Prior to entering prison, his producer said that he expects Lil Wayne to concentrate on lyrics and written music. Finding the right beat will come when Weezy makes his return to the studio.
