Looks like Lil Wayne is headed to the big house. We wonder how he’ll get his beloved cough syrup in jail?
On Thursday, the tremendously successful rapper pleaded guilty to a gun possession charge. As part of his plea deal, he was sentenced to one year in jail, according to AP.
In July 2007, Weezy was arrested for possessing a .4-caliber semi-automatic. Although he has agreed to the plea bargain, his official sentencing will come in February. He is also required to relinquish his passport.
The court appearance comes as Lil Wayne is once again on top of the charts with “Down,” from him and protégé Jay Sean. He’s also on the charts with “Forever,” performed by Drake, Kanye West and Eminem; “Successful” with Drake, and “I Can Transform Ya,” with Chris Brown, and “Money to Blow,” with Birdman.
