Lil Wayne finally makes it to prison for a 1 year sentence
Lil Wayne has managed to avoid going to jail twice now with both dates being pushed back due to unforeseen circumstances (he needed dental work done and then a fire erupted in courthouse), but his luck is finally up. He has officially turned himself into authorities today to begin his year long sentence. MTV has stated that a riot almost broke out outside the Manhattan Criminal Court Building as he was going to enter.
The rapper will serve his sentence in city jails rather than a state prison. If he cooperates with the officials inside, he could get his sentence moved up to 8 months. He doesn’t plan to put a hold on his music and has told Billboard that he will “be still rapping in there, have a gang of raps ready when I come back home.”
