Lil’ Wayne Released From Prison

Published: Thursday 4th Nov 2010 by Sam

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).

    Agreed. People act like he’s Nelson Mandel. If Lil Wayne being released from prison is the highlight of your day, then you seriously need to reevaluate your life.

    Who cares about wayne being in jail or out,seriously?Did he pay my bills ?

  6. daboss8791 November 4, 2010

    Unfortunately, for some in the Black community going to jail is a right of passage. Blacks have the misfortune of going to jail for things that members of other races might recieve probation for, ex: T.I. and Lindsay Lohan. I really don’t need to list anymore do I? Be that as it may, Lil Wayne did something wrong, and got his punishment and served his time, but does that mean he should be treated like a pariah for the rest of his life? He’s done his time, and if his friends and family chose to celebrate his homecoming, to each his own!

IF SOMEONE SO MUCH AS SNEEZE WRONG LOCK THEIR B*** UP! IT DOESNT MATTER WHO IT IS FROM LIL WAYNE TO ANTOINE DOBSON LOCK EM UP !

  16. nicole November 4, 2010

    Who frickin cares it should be praised for being released from prison. smh what is wrong with people today. Lil Wayne is just a disgrace to young man in general thinking its right to have 2 woman pregnant at the same time. and portraying this image and thinking its cool. and his music is garbage. I feel bad for his kids. i am just speaking my opinion.hopelfully he will set an example for his children. btw i am 16

    Let the church say Amen!!!

    That is what I love about Sam. U keeps it real. You know how to throw that shade (I live for the Rihanna posts), but you also know how to get intellectual with it like this post right here. Can’t find that kinda entertainin realness on any other site.

    As for wayne, I just hope he gets his s*** together.

  20. MichelleWFan November 4, 2010

    I agree 1000000000000000000% with you sam … They should be ashamed.

  21. VA STAND UP!! November 4, 2010

    Congrats Weezy! Now get your ass in the studio and stay your ass out of jail! Please don’t pull a TI.

    You have a point Sam, but as far as the other you mentioned…they can stay in jail for all I care!

  24. Likecaesar November 4, 2010

    Graduated from college…the homies said “u think u all that” and “u think u too good for the hood now”! Cousin got outta jail and the homies threw him a BBQ! Guess misery just loves company!

  25. Blue Kid November 4, 2010

    I agree with TGJ on this one, fans need to stop glorifying the bad behavior of there fav’s. Smh!

  26. ~aMaZiNG.Lee~ November 4, 2010

    Uh-oh this means an increase in population because more babies will be born in every zip code. Especially since he hasn’t got any in 8 months. (Well from a female at least). LOL! J/K

    You guys know I’m a Wayne fan (Formerly named Team Weezy, just changed my name and gravatar) but I’ve never supported his personal life or his attempts to get street credibility by doing stupid things to go to jail. If you know the entire story, to me, he was asking to be put in jail. I have never and will never say ‘Free Weezy’ because he deserved to be locked up. Not only am I glad that he paid his dues to society but also that he wasn’t able to smoke or drink that damn syrup. Maybe being sober will carry on in his every day life now (probably not). Now all I need is another mixtape, preferably like his ‘No Ceilings’ mixtape. That’s the Wayne I LOVE, the “MIXTAPE WAYNE”

  27. I & I (yardie style) November 4, 2010

    agreed. stay outta jail damn it!

  29. jeremy November 4, 2010

    Actually lil wanye was innocent if you did ya research rather then jus running your mouth like you know what happened… The gun wasn’t his and on top of it the couldn’t even prove that he even touched the gun, I thought you were innocent until proven guilty and he wasn’t proven guilty he jus took the plea deal so he wa4 innocent another person wrongfully jailed but now T.I. Him and his wife need to stay in jail right next to lindsay lohan

  30. UMMM……….. November 4, 2010

    TGJ, I total agree with you this “rah rah Weezy’s free” media frenzy is irritating. Although, I do like Lil Wayne and happy he’s home.


    lets not forget the Can’t Go To, Won’t GO TO Jail Crew NO MATTER HOW MUCH THEY DESEVE TO GO: Charlie Sheen, Lindsay Lohan, Eminem, Paris Hilton, Mel Gibson, Sean Penn, Steven Seagal, Daniel Baldwin, Woody Allen, Romain Polanski, etc who have done similar or far worse than those you mentioned but WILL NEVER RECEIVE AS MUCH AS A SIDE EYE GLANCE FROM THE COURT!


  31. Call On Me November 4, 2010


    What a ridiculous thing to say. An entire community of people do not view prison as a “right of passage”! There are too many discrepancies within the criminal justice system for any reasonable person to believe what the media propagates.

  32. True Blue November 4, 2010

    @ Amazing.Lee:

    My bad, I always thought you were a new TGJ visitor! I was just thinking to myself “I haven’t seen Team Weezy in ages…”

    Yeah, to be honest, I think he is so caught up in going down as a legend in the same vein as a rock star that I kind of think he’s deliberately hurting himself so he can die early and become a musical martyr (see: Jimi Hendrix, Kurt Cobain, Tupac, Biggie Smalls).

  33. ~aMaZiNG.Lee~ November 4, 2010


    OMG!!!! I have been saying that for the LONGEST! I debate about this with my friends all the time. It’s like he wants to die early so he can be known like the Jimmy Hendrix, 2Pac, Biggie, and especially Kurt Cobain because he really idolizes him (he refers to him ALOT in his rhymes). That’s crazy because you said, verbatim what I’ve been saying since he became so mainstream. *high five* LOL!

  34. True Blue November 5, 2010

    ^^^ Damn, I thought I was the only one who thought that way, lol!

  35. BENJAMIN November 5, 2010

    Wayne is out, so am I supposed to be excited?

    @Sam —

    “Pardon my cynical, but the inevitable hoo-harr about his return is irritating my skin. Scratch.” <– Does this mean you'll then-be-rendered incapable of "even and unbiased review" of Wayne's upcoming material? Sam, to be totally honest, you've demonstrated a "less-than-keen-insight," and an "even-lesser appreciation" of any-and-all that was "born of/from the streets…!!"

    …Rap ain't exactly Gimmick-strong/techno-pop music, now is it, Sam? (A bit too crude for your finely-tuned British-sensibilities?)

    "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."<–Sam the puritan(no-one, at least not of this generation, uses the word/term "slammer", you're showing your age); Sam of-the-manor-born, whose contempt for anything he doesn't understand would be ignorant, were it not for the fact that "if it's dressed in white," it'll then be noteworthy, and beyond reproach…!! Sam, you've had nothing but glowing adoration for all that "The White Rapper" has produced…!! Sam, you're "color struck," and it's left you confused, self-hating and needy…!!

    "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)." <– Sam, er… I take it, you didn't "get the memo" but the charges against Gucci: DROPPED – ALL OF THEM….!!!

    When's the last time a DA outright dropped ALL OF THE CHARGES on a readily and easily convictable rap-superstar felon…?? … Never, that's when…!! Then WHY, did they OUTRIGHT drop the charges, SO-SOON AFTER ARRAIGNMENT? … Because that "cop stop" was bad: THOSE COPS LIED, THAT'S WHY….!!!

    Sam, you're so-obviously … "color struck"…!! There's just no-other reason, rational nor explanation!
    YOU'RE A BLINDED, BIAS AND SELF-LOATHING CARNIVORE!! If Uncle Tom had a Cabin, you'd volunteer as "head-grounds keeper, and forever-appreciative toe-tapping gesturer…!!!"

    X.Y,"and Z" — OUT…!!

  37. KASH November 5, 2010

    HMMM.. My thoughts ….well First off Lindsay Lohan and Paris Hilton have had how many arrest’s? And how many time’s have been let out on community service…and 30 day’s jail time? Yea Weezy may have a gun.. But was he harming anyone..? He is a caring intelligent person…. So get over it if we wanna celebrate his release… he has a little girl that he came home to that was overjoyed… He payed for the consequences that he made …which were harsh…SO FREEE WEEEZZZY F BABY
