Lil Wayne Stuck in Solitary Confinement Because of an iPod

lil wayne Up until now, Lil Wayne has been something of a model citizen at Riker's Island, where he's spent the past 11 months serving a one-year jail sentence. He's been playing Uno, updating his blog, and has even found time to keep other inmates from killing themselves. With his globally anticipated November 4th release date within sight, it's been safe to say that Weezy's time behind bars has been a roaring success -- until he got caught with an iPod.

As the AP reports, the diminutive rapper will now spend his very last month of incarceration in solitary confinement, after a Riker's officer caught him with an iPod. Wayne had apparently stored the device and its requisite charging equipment in his jail cell, but was outed earlier this year. He'll now spend 23 hours a day in his cell, which he can leave only to take a shower or entertain visitors. That's right. The Tchaikovsky of our times can no longer listen to music or play Uno: further proof that our prison system is in disrepair.
