Lil Wayne is already the hottest thing in Hip-Hop and for the past few years he has only gotten more and more popular. Now the rapper has plead guilty to gun charges associated with a 2007 arrest.
While he has yet to be sentenced, insiders speculate he will serve about eight to 12 months over the conviction. The rapper managed to dodge a potentially lengthy prison term by submitting to the terms of the deal.
Clearly, this is not the optimal way to further one's career, but could there be an upside to this seemingly bad situation?
The streets and internet have posed the question: will jail increase the already popular rapper's street cred after doing a stint in a New York City jail?
Take the poll and weigh in.
