Rapper Lil Wayne aka Dwayne Carter has been released from Rikers Island jail in New York after serving only eight months of his one-year sentence.
Carter's time in jail stemmed from 2007, when he was arrested for criminal possession of a weapon following a performance at the Beacon Theater in Manhattan.
This charge could have resulted in 15 years behind bars, but in exchange for a guilty plea, his time behind bars was greatly reduced. Wayne says although the gun was found on his tour bus during that incident, it was registered to his manager and was in a bag near the rapper.
Remember all that root canal drama that kept postponing his sentence? Let's hope he kept up his dental hygiene while in the slammer.
Wonder if this jail experience will make it into one of Lil Wayne's future rap songs?
