The latest issue of Rolling Stone features Lil Wayne on the cover.
Need we say more? This is a man who once let us in on a little secret regarding birth control. He's as quotable as they come, so you know this will be good.
The rapper and frequent dad opens up for the first time about the eight months he spent behind bars at Riker's Island. Some excerpts from the interview:
Out of jail. On the loose. Ready for strip clubs.
On dominating at a card game so much, fellow inmates tried to cut him out of the game: "I'd bust a n***a's ass at Uno. We gamble for phone time."
"I'd take n***a's commissary. Lemme get them cookies, lemme get them chips, get that soup. They'd be like, 'Oh, we thought you were asleep.' Like you can't look inside my cell and see that I'm right there! We ain't got no doors n***a!"On his reading material in jail: [Anthony Kiedis'] Scar Tissue was really good. I also read the Bible in there for the first time. It was deep!"
"I liked the parts where some character was once this, but ended up being that. Like he'd be dissing Jesus, then he ends up being a saint. That was cool."
On the dude who saved him from more time in solitary confinement by claiming a contraband MP3 player was his and not Weezy's:
"He was a solid n***a. Shout-out to Charles. Being in solitary was the worst. No TV. No radio. No commissary. Basically in there 23 hours a day."
As you can see, Wayne uses a light tone in describing jail, but he does note that the whole experience has really changed his outlook on quite a bit.
Think he'll come away from this a better person? If nothing else, the man needs to give more interviews like this one. He is sound bite gold.
