Lil' Wayne Gets One Year In Jail

Lil' Wayne Gets One Year In Jail

By Robert Paul Reyes

 

"Lil` Wayne is headed to the big house.

The troubled rapper pleaded guilty to felony gun possession charges Thursday, agreeing to spend a year behind bars.


Wayne, whose real name is Dwayne Carter, was hit with a pair of charges after a loaded .40 caliber semi-automatic gun was discovered in his tour bus two years ago." Read more:


I don`t see why this is big news, going to prison is a rite of passage for a rapper. I am not going to bore my readers by naming the many rappers who have done stints in jail or prison.

A few months behind bars is a small price for Lil` Wayne to pay, the benefits outweigh the negatives. Wayne`s street creed is enhanced, and that will result in millions of CD`s sold.

When Lil` Wayne gets out of prison, his fans will shower him with love and BET or VH1 will offer him a reality series.

I can`t fault Wayne`s strategy, keeping a loaded gun in his tour bus was a smart idea. The rapper would have reaped even greater benefits if he had shot someone.
