"And I'll Take Probation. I Don't Want That T.I. and Vick Vacation...."

You may not have heard, but Lil Weezy just Plaxico'd himself into a 1 year prison sentence this past week for a NY gun charge:

"Lil Wayne pleaded guilty to felony gun possession in a Manhattan courtroom on Thursday (October 22) stemming from a July 2007 arrest following his first headlining concert in New York. The rapper will be sentenced to one year in prison as a part of his plea deal and must also give up his passport. Wayne quietly told the judge yes when asked if he understood the terms of the plea he was making."

Looks like Weezy got away with a slightly less punishment than Plax, but still:

"Wayne will be sentenced in February 2010 and is expected to serve eight to 10 months, assuming good behavior. He must also appear in court in December for a parole update."
-MTV News

Man, just when he was really starting to reel in the glory for the Carter III, he's now going upstate for the greater part of a year. Needless to say, NY gun laws are OFFICIALLY no joke after this sentence.

Even though I'm not particularly looking forward to it, we'll at least get to see a new side of Lil Wayne before he goes to prison when he releases his debut "rock" album titled Rebirth.

When asked to comment on the CEO of Young Money heading to do his fair time, Drake said:

“I’ll just do what I can to keep the whole Young Money/Cash Money team going, and I just want to play my part as a team member and keep the brand strong until the boss gets home.”
-The Rap Up

All in all I don't think he got too bad of a deal considering he was originally supposed to get a 15 year stint and was able to cop a plea deal for a year. Let's just hope before he goes away, he can get on a years worth of cameo's and plan a re-release of his album...wait someone else already did that...yea Clifford, you're "The King" at that (pardon the pun). Too bad Tupac was the first to pull off the same career sustaining move while in prison before both T.I. and Lil Wayne.
