Lil Wayne Explains Jail Contraband Violation: “I Got the Penthouse Here…”

Earlier today, an upbeat Lil Wayne called up friend and Nino Brown Story DVD collaborator DJ Scoob Doo to reveal the details on his recent contraband violation at Riker’s Island.

Last Thursday (May 13), officials confiscated a charger, MP3 player, and headphones from the rapper’s cell.

The infraction could result in Wayne remaining in prison for the majority of his 1 year sentence, as it constitutes a violation of “good behavior” protocol.

Wayne admitted to the incident, but justified it on the basis that music is a necessity for him.

“Yeah, they tried to bang me with that. But I can’t live without my music, Scoob,” he explained. “You know how it is, man. I needed my music. It’s all good; I had to take my lil slip up. I ain’t trippin’, players fuck up.”

The New Orleans emcee didn’t verify whether he’s been reprimanded for the infraction. Normally, inmates are required to face a trial before a corrections officer and a captain to determine whether further punishment is warranted.

“I’m coolin’, I’ll be home soon,” Wayne assured. “It’s Nino Brown; I got the penthouse here at Riker’s. I got my feet up, ya smell me? My team is still holding it down, man. They [are] keeping the flood open. I already know how it go.”

Upon his release, Wayne verified that he and DJ Scoob Doo will complete a third installment of The Nino Brown Story.

The latest Wayne project will be a video release for “Steady Mobbin’.”
