Lil Wayne Talks Prison with Rolling Stone
Here’s what the 28-year-old rapper had to share:
On the books he read in prison: “[Anthony Kiedis'] Scar Tissue was really good,” he says. “I also read the Bible for the first time. It was deep! I liked the parts where some character was once this, but he ended up being that. Like he’d be dissing Jesus, and then he ends up being a saint. That was cool.”
On not being invited to cellmates’ Uno games because he was too good at the game: “They’d be like, ‘Oh, we thought you were asleep.’ Like you can’t look inside my cell and see that I’m right there! We ain’t got no doors!”
On dealing with solitary confinement: “Solitary was the worst. No TV. No radio. No commissary. Basically you’re in there 23 hours a day.” The only upside was he had a window where he could watch cars go by. “I used to sit at that motherf—er all day,” he says.
