"Counting the days and still smiling." --Lil Wayne on his stint in jail
Not even eight months in prison could keep Weezy down. His album I Am Not a Human Being debuted at #2 on the Billboard albums chart based on digital sales alone.
The rapper went on a long “vacation” in March of this year after he struck a plea deal in his case stemming from a 2007 gun arrest near the Beacon Theatre in Manhattan. The rapper and his entourage were leaving his first headline performance in the Big Apple when police pulled over his tour bus. The New York Police Department alleged that the odor of marijuana was coming from the vehicle and later searched the bus. Authorities discovered drugs and a gun, registered in Wayne's manager's name, near the rapper.
