Rick Ross, Jim Jones and Juelz Santana have been the first to share their reactions to Lil Wayne's guilty plea and offered their views on his prospected one-year jail sentence.
Jones shared his reaction by comparing Wayne to incarcerated rapper T.I.
"Thts crazy lil Wayne gets a year for a hand pistol and ti gets the same tome for having army issued rifles wit silencers U tell me wtf," Jones wrote Thursday afternoon via Twitter. (Jim Jones' Twitter)
Santana also disagreed with Weezy's plea deal.
"A! I just arrived 2 the set. Just did a MTV News interview wit Shaheem about Lil Wayne. That's some BULL SH*T!!!!," Santana wrote on Twitter hours after reports of Wayne's guilty plea made headlines. (Juelz Santana's Twitter)
Ross said he felt the Young Money leader could overcome the jail stint.
"It hurt us," Rick Ross said. "We strategize and work towards this for so long, [and] when something like that, a major inconvenience such as that, nine people out of 10, that stint could hurt them. But I think Wayne has a unique situation with his Cash Money family and now his Young Money roster, I know they got a lot of things poppin'. Wayne's got enough music. He's one of the few artists I feel could eat those 10 months up, or that year, and then come home to rap royalty. If anybody is gonna be able to do it, it's gonna be Wayne." (MTV)
GaTa, who is an associate of Young Money's Tyga, discussed his reaction to the reports.
"Thankful I Got the Opportunity to work and make some Amazing Songs with #LilWayne before he got that Jail Term-No Man Is Unstoppable!" (GaTa's Twitter)
