Lil Wayne Released from Jail After Eight Months

By  | 

Rapper Lil’ Wayne was released from Rikers Island, after eight months in the slammer. Lil’ Wayne, who has an entire “Free Weezy” campaign on his side, was serving time on a gun possession charge. Dwayne Carter (also known as Weezy) is Lil’ Wayne’s real name and the namesake of his album, “Tha Carter” and “Tha Carter II.”

Wayne’s fans shouldn’t get rid of their Free Weezy shirts too quickly; Wayne still has to stop in Arizona to finish paperwork from a 2008 drug case. He’s not completely free from the legal system, but that hasn’t stopped an epic “Welcome Home, Weezy” bash being planned in Miami.

Wayne’s also rumored to be performing in Las Vegas with his Young Money protege, Drake. His music making hasn’t stopped since he was incarcerated; his eight months in jail including the release of his album “ I Am Not a Human Being” featuring other Young Money artists Nicki Minaj and Drake, on his 28th birthday. The young rapper also wrote letters to his numerous fans, maintaining his connection to the music world.

Music is integral to Weezy’s life, so much so that he was caught with an MP3 player in May, granting him solitary confinement for the rest of his stay, which incidentally was also shortened because of good behavior.

As noted on, Bill Clinton said, “This guy’s smart. And he’s got abilities. And he’s got a new chance now. And what I hope is that this is not just something to brand him as a cool guy, but that it’ll never happen again to him.”

With Clinton and other fans on his side, he’s in a good place. Fans are very supportive as well, coming out to Rikers Island the morning of his release. MTV also reports that President Obama is also a fan of Weezy, “My rap palate has greatly improved. Jay-Z used to be sort of what predominated, but now I’ve got a little Nas and a little Lil Wayne and some other stuff.” So for all you Free Weezy fans out there…Weezy’s Free!
