Dipset's Juelz Santana recently said he has been in touch with Lil Wayne during his current incarceration
Talking with radio host DJ Whoo Kid, Juelz said he is trying to protect Wayne during his stay on Rikers Island.
"Wayne is like my brother, that's my dude," Santana said in an interview. "I stay in contact with him pretty much every so often. Yeah, he's locked up in New York -- we gonna set the homie out. That's all I'm gonna say, we gonna set the homie out. We gonna make sure the homie right. I promise you, I'm gonna set the homie out. This is our city, you know we got a lot of people around the area so we gotta make sure the homie's good. [The inmates], they love Weezy but you got idiots everywhere you go. It's just like going to a club, there's always on idiot. That's what I'm saying and they always think it's us [causing problems.]" (Radio Planet TV)
T-Pain recently said the rapper's one-year jail bid has delayed their duet project.
"The T-Wayne album, we're actually gonna wait until he gets out," Pain said in an interview. "He has so much going on. He has Rebirth out right now. I don't wanna interrupt that. We just gonna wait until he gets out to really get in on that. We recorded a bunch of songs. But, right now, it's time for him and his personal sh--. We definitely got an album's worth of material, but it's only an album's worth. It's nothing to pick from. We just got an album. We can put out whatever we feel like and say, 'Hey, this is T-Wayne's album,' or we can actually try to make it good. Like we're actually trying to make an album and say, 'This is the good T-Wayne album.' Rather than just record 12 songs and say, 'Here you go, mutha----as! I know you want it. You gonna buy it anyway, just 'cause you think it's good.'" (MTV)
Since being placed behind bars earlier this month, Wayne has already experienced restrictions due to his fame.
A rep for the Correction Officer's Benevolent Association tells us officials issued the no autograph mandate because "Lil Wayne is not a celebrity in here." The rep also tells us Wayne isn't getting any special treatment while at Rikers -- but we're told the rapper really hasn't requested anything out of the ordinary. (TMZ)
He was officially sentenced to a year behind bars last week.
Lil Wayne has been sentenced to a year in jail after pleading guilty in a New York City gun case. The Grammy Award-winning rapper was taken away in handcuffs to start serving his term immediately after his sentencing. He'll serve his sentence in city jails, not a state prison. He could be released in about eight months with good behavior. (CBS News)
