Rolling Stone Magazine managed to grab one of Lil Wayne‘s last few interviews before he starts his bid in prison, and slapped the rapper on the cover of their March 2010 issue, in which he discusses how he’s going to cope with his 12 month prison sentence. It sounds like he’s just ready to get it over with.
I don’t like to stop,” Wayne tells RS‘ Chris Norris. “I believe you stop when you die.” So in the weeks before he reports to Rikers Island, Wayne is keeping busy — recording tracks bound for Tha Carter IV (the album Cash Money staffers call “C4? because it’ll be the bomb), shooting videos with his Young Money protégés, spending time with his growing family, and deliberately not asking anyone for advice about life on the inside. “This is Lil Wayne going to jail. Nobody I can talk to can tell me what that’s like,” he says. “I just say I’m looking forward to it.”
While Weezy’s away, his label is relocating to New York to be near him, and his manager Cortez Bryant is exploring ways to keep Wayne in his fans’ minds for the duration — from jailhouse Twitter accounts to endorsements. “I’ll have an iPod, and I”ll make sure they keep sending me beats,” Lil Wayne says. Tha Carter IV — which Norris is told features tougher, faster beats — is scheduled to arrive shortly after he gets out.
Since when do they let you have an iPod in jail? And LOL @ Rolling Stone for promoting gang violence with this cover, SMH…
