Days after Lil Wayne was punished for having an MP3 player, a spokesman for the New York City Department of Corrections has come forward to explain the details of the situation. Despite the Young Money rapper being put into solitary confinement, his release on November 4th will not be effected.
"It doesn't change his projected release date," said Stephen Morello, a spokesperson for the New York City Department of Correction. "It's a serous infraction because it's contraband, but it's not a weapon, and by comparison to a more violent infraction of the rules, like assaulting another inmate or an officer, [it's not as serious]."
In related news, when Lil Wayne is released in a few weeks, there will of course be some celebration. With his family planning a "Weezy Weekend," Lil Wayne was asked who he might want at his party. "Madonna," Wayne said. Of course, he quickly added with a laugh, "That was a joke. It doesn't matter, man, I just want to see the fans and I want them to see me, that's all."
Wayne continued by talking about the mail he gets. "Honestly, I await the mail every day, just to open one up and see what somebody is saying. Reading the fan mail, man, you never expect what you see when you open those letters," Wayne said. "Somebody talking about, 'I have this incurable disease, but your music makes me feel like I don't even have a disease,' " he marveled. "You can't even believe it."
