Troubled Hip-Hop star Lil’ Wayne is a free man.
Following a miscalculation which delayed his release by an additional day, the ‘Lollipop’ rapper was officially released from the Rikers Island jail facility in New York City early this morning.
He served eight months of his one year sentence after pleading guilty to the attempted criminal possession of a weapon last year.
Friends and family are believed to have organised a large-scale ‘Welcome Home Weezy’ bash.
Pardon my cynical, but the inevitable hoo-harr about his return is irritating my skin. Scratch.
By no means should one be written off for their wrongs, yet the celebratory sentiments, as well as the utter nonsense that was the ‘Free Weezy’ calls (as if he was wronged in some way), are ridiculous. If only the masses, along with his nearest and dearest, would pause and stop glorifying his behaviour, then perhaps his behind would stay out of the slammer.
Same goes for the rest of the Can’t Stay, Won’t Stay Out Of Jail Crew (see: T.I., Wacka Flocka, Gucci Mane, DMX, and co).
