Earlier this month, Lil Wayne checked in from jail, revealing that he’s been passing the time reading the Bible and writing sports blogs for ESPN.
When he’s not doing that, he’s got a new mandatory job while at Rikers Island: suicide watch.
According to an Us Weekly, Weezy’s ex and baby’s mama, Antonia “Toya” Johnson, said prison officials have the rapper monitoring inmates on suicide watch.
“Wayne has a job,” she told the site. “They got him on suicide watch for other prisoners. He watches the crazy prisoners and makes sure they don’t kill themselves. He likes the job even though they don’t pay him much.”
Aside from the job, Toya says Weezy’s stay has been just fine and he’s yet to have any problems.
“He is getting along with everybody,” she claimed.
She also adds that the rapper hasn’t had to cut his dreads while incarcerated either.
The rapper is less than a month in for his one year prison sentence. If everything goes well, he’ll be out in eight months.
