[lastfm]Lil Wayne [/lastfm]is expected to turn himself in today, Tuesday, March 2nd 2010, and begin his one year sentence at Rikers Island in New York, from a 2007 gun charge arrest . Find out what he can expect, including who he will be surrounded by, what activities he will participate in, and the treatment he will receive.
Wayne’s world is about to get flipped upside down. His crazy schedule of recording and and touring will be replaced with a regimented routine of 4 A.M. wake up calls and 3 P.M. dinners. An unidentified prison guard tells MTV News that Wayne should expect the treatment of most inmates in his class. His class is based on the charges he was put in jail for and any circumstances that may make his safety a concern. Wayne’s classification, however, will most likely be decided based in part on his fame, the guard said. The guard also suggested Wayne would be placed in the Eric M. Taylor Center at Rikers, on the north side of the facility in East Elmhurst, New York.
“He’ll be housed with inmates who are classified in his category, and he’ll be able to be a regular inmate,” the guard said. “He’ll be able to watch television, go into the day room and congregate with people of his classification.” “[pullquote quote=”It’s a high-class area where he will be segregated from population,” credit=”MTV News”]
[lastfm]Lil Wayne[/lastfm] recently told Rolling Stone about bringing an iPod with music he can write to on it when he gets locked up. Unfortunately, the guard told MTV News that an iPod would be considered contraband and confiscated. He can however buy a transistor radio with his commissary money.
Weezy will have plenty of downtime between his 4 A.M. wake up and his 3 P.M. dinner to write in his own 10’x15′ cell, complete with a toilet, sink, and window (of another wall).
