Lil' Wayne Pleads Guilty!

Rapper Likely to Serve a Year in Jail

This morning, (Thursday, October 22nd) at around 10:05AM, Lil Wayne walked into a Manhattan courtroom and pleaded guilty to felony weapons charges, stemming from an incident in July 2007, in which he was arrested after his very first headlining gig in New York City. According to, Wayne is expected to be sentenced to a year in jail, but could be released in eight to ten months if he behaves himself while incarcerated.

Wayne’s long-delayed albums, Rebirth and Tha Carter IV, are expected to be released before the end of the year, so I guess we can expect to see quite a bit of Lil Wayne in the coming months (much like the media blitz undertaken by T.I. in the months leading up to his incarceration). Incredibly, Wayne’s legal troubles actually don’t end here though. We can’t forget about the multiple drug and weapons charges Wayne is facing after an incident back in early 2008, when he and two others were arrested after their tour bus was stopped by police just outside of Yuma, Arizona. Officers found ridiculously large amounts of marijuana, cocaine and ecstasy in Wayne’s possession, in addition to $22,000 in cash. We’ll have to wait and see how those charges pan out, but if Wayne couldn’t beat these weapons charges, I’m thinking he might not beat those drug charges either.

Not a great day for Lil Wayne guys.
