Lil Wayne was busted at Riker’s Island this week, after prison officials found him in possession of “music contraband.”
According to the New York Daily News, the rapper (real name: Dwayne Carter Jr.) was popped at around 8 a.m. Monday morning (May 10) after correctional officers found a charger and ear phones for a watch that doubled as a digital music player.
“He was found with a charger for an MP3 player and unauthorized earphones,” in his Rikers Island cell, a source said.
The items were seized, and a subsequent search found another inmate in the same wing with the accompanying music player.
The paper says a prison rat tipped off officers.
Weezy and the other inmate will be charged with an infraction for contraband.
He is currently serving a one year prison sentence stemming from a weapons possession charge from 2007.
