Weezy F. “I Got A Lot Of Babies” Says Being Locked Up Wasn’t That Bad

- By Bossip Staff

SMH at him spending all his time playing “Uno”:

Rapper Lil Wayne says his stretch at Rikers Island “wasn’t as difficult as people might think” and that he got so good at Uno other inmates refused to play him. In a cover story for Rolling Stone magazine, the 28-year-old Grammy winner reveals his biggest hardship in the can was being deprived of conjugal visits.

“Don’t remind me, Brother,” he says, adding the closest he came to a lover was a picture of a woman he cut out of a magazine and taped to the wall of his 10-by-6-foot cell. The tattooed rapper was released from jail in November after serving 242 days in protective custody (he prefers calling it “Punk City”) for attempted criminal possession of a weapon, a charge he describes as “bull—-.”

Wayne says he got to know his fellow “Punk City” inmates during the eight hours a day they’d spend in a rec room watching TV or cooking together like in the prison scene from “Goodfellas.” His favorite pastime was playing Uno, a card game, and he and other inmates would gamble for commissary goods or one another’s phone-use privileges. He said he won far more than he lost.

“I would have a bed full of s–t,” he says. “The [correction officers] would come through and like, ‘What are you, about to cook?’ ‘Nope, just kicked ass at Uno, that’s all!'” Lil Wayne, who was born Dwayne Michael Carter, said he read in jail more than he ever read before, mostly biographies ranging from Jimi Hendrix to Vince Lombardi. He also read Confucius and the whole Bible.

“It was deep!” he says of the Gospels. He worked as a jailhouse suicide-prevention aide, earning 50 cents an hour, but found his 10 p.m.-to-6 a.m. shift was “for the birds.” His visitors included a who’s who of hip-hop royalty from Sean (Diddy) Combs and Nicki Minaj to Kanye West, who rapped his latest album for him.

Once, he received a call from former Jets quarterback Brett Favre telling him to “Keep your head up.”

“Not to use the word ‘easy’ – but it wasn’t difficult as people might think,” he says of his time behind bars. “There’s difficulty – mentally, just waking up every damn day in that mother——. But once you get over that, it’s all good.”

      Are you reading something that I didn’t read other than the mockery the writer of this article is making of him. I didn’t see anywhere in this article where he himself discussed his kids. Ya know if you read a little more carefully you wouldn’t respond with such general and simple minded responses. All men that go to prison and come out aren’t gay. How would you know unless you’ve been to prison and if you truly mean what you say then doesn’t that make you gay? Yeah I thought so.

    I have never, ever been in jail/prison/lockup, but I have had family members, and friends that have went to the penthouse & trust there is NOTHING! NOTHING GLAMOURS about being locked up! Told what to do, when to do, how to do it, chow time etc…True, he has $$$$ so when he ret’d to society he was ready to go….trust young boys in the real world it’s not like that….life goes on w/or w/o you…family members cont to funtion & they have to take time out of their schedules/lives to come and sit & visit w/you…..

    so, listen to this knucklhead if you want, because trust he is NOT coming to visit or send you a single dime if you decide to take the same vacation he took…..
    I’m just saying….now that is reality.
