Cash Money Records' Jay Sean has revealed that label founders Baby and Slim visit their incarcerated artist, Lil Wayne, on a weekly basis.
Sean also revealed what he sees as Wayne's biggest struggle behind bars.
"They go and see him once a week," Jay revealed in an interview. "Either Baby will go in one week and Slim will go the other week. His boys will go and see him. [Wayne is] good. He's doing well. I think the hardest thing for Wayne right now is not being in the studio. That's it. That's probably the only thing; he's probably dying to spit. Think about it. The guy was making a new song every day, every hour. He's gonna come out and do 100 albums...Hopefully he's not getting into any trouble. They say he's getting better and better. He's more positive. He can't wait to come out." (MTV)
Rap mogul Diddy reportedly stopped by to see Wayne in late April.
Rap mega-star Lil Wayne - locked up on a gun conviction - brought in at least one more bold-faced name this week: Diddy. The music mogul stopped by the Eric M. Taylor correctional facility to visit Lil Wayne on Wednesday. Diddy, born Sean Combs, even swapped his luxury wheels for the public bus like all the other visitors Wednesday. Diddy was on a pre-approved list to see Lil Wayne, whose real name is Dwayne Carter Jr., and the chat was limited to an hour, sources said. (New York Daily News)
Young Money's Lil Twist recently discussed Wayne's absence.
"We'll be fine because [Wayne] has such a big name and now we have three of the hottest stars in the world, including Drake and Nicki, so we can't lose. We're gonna continue to run this game. This whole experience has taught me to stay humble and not to get in trouble. I don't even think my bro did anything wrong. With him being who he is and doing what he does, he needs protection, but there's different rules in every spot so we're gonna just make it through. I can't wait until we can put this behind us. I'm looking forward to working with him again. I'm looking forward to fun and games. I'm looking forward to talking to him about everything like I used to. I just want him to be proud when he sees me. I love my bro." (VIBE)
Despite being in jail over a gun conviction, YM's Drake does not feel Wayne was rightfully charged for his crime.
"One of my biggest influences ended up being a close friend of mine, Jay-Z and Lil Wayne who is actually responsible for my career has always been a huge influence to me and one of my heroes," Drake said in an interview. "I've talked to Wayne since he's been in jail. In my opinion, he didn't do anything wrong. I think that was the opportunity to make an example of somebody who didn't deserve to be made an example out of." (CNN)
