Lil Wayne Released from Jail

Posted: November 5, 2010 in Hip-Hop, music

Lil Wayne is a free man now.  Weezy was released yesterday morning around 8:30 from Rickers Island in New York.  It seems like all we’ve heard for the past 8 months has been “Free Weezy!”

The hip-hop world, especially his Young Money Entertainment crew, is beyond excited about having Weezy back.  Nicki Minaj, Drake, and Birdman were all tweeting their joy. The question now is: what next?  Well, Wayne’s Tha Carter IV is slated for a December 14th release.  I can’t even imagine how many million copies Tha Carter IV is going to sell.  Weezy now has legitimate street cred from this jail stint, which will only make him stronger.

Young Money President Mack Maine explained Weezy’s determination in a recent “RapFix Live” interview. Being in jail forced Lil Wayne to change up his style a bit.  And by that, I mean he has started writing his raps down again, something he hasn’t done since before 2004’s Tha Carter.  Maine said:

“He’s writing. He’s writing music now. Everyone knows that Wayne didn’t write before he went in.  [He’s been] incarcerated for eight months. You can’t remember eight months of material up top.”

Maine also said to expect a “new-and-improved, hungry Wayne.”

“He’s more educated. He was already smart, [but] there’s no such thing as too much knowledge.  Expect a smarter Wayne that’s writing.”

Wayne has to appear in an Arizona court today to sign papers and appear in court for his January 2008 incident in which his tour bus was searched and busted for cocaine, Ecstasy, and a hand gun.  A plea deal was reached in the case in which Weezy has three years of unsupervised probation and some community service.

Saturday the 6th, Lil Wayne is most likely going to make a surprise appearance at Drake’s Las Vegas show.

The next day, the Young Money family will have a huge party at a strip club in Miami.
