Lil Wayne's iPod Lands Him a Month In Solitary Confinement

Lil Wayne's only got a month left on his eight-month stint at Riker's, but he's going to be spending it all by his lonesome. The guards who found the rapper's contraband iPod, charger, and headphones have banished him to solitary.

Weezy will spend 23 hours out of every day in "punitive segregation" until he's released next month. That means no mingling, no television, and absolutely no music. His only human contact, aside from his lawyer and the occasional visitor, will be one phone call per week.

Lil Wayne's been serving time for a firearm possession charge, and had been stashing his iPod accessories in a potato chip bag. The device itself was found sequestered with a nearby cellmate earlier this year.

Basically, the whole incident would be our generation's Shawshank Redemption, if The Shawshank Redemption hadn't come out in this generation. [AP]
