Lil Wayne gets year in prison for gun charges

October 22nd, 2009 // 94 Comments

A day after DNA testing linked him to an illegal handgun found on his tour bus, Lil Wayne copped a plea bargain this morning and pleaded guilty to charges of attempted weapon possession. He faces a year in prison as opposed to a minimum 3 1/2 year sentence if he was found guilty of illegal gun possession charges, according to the AP:

In New York, he politely answered the judge’s standard questions with “yes, Sir” and “no, Sir” as he entered his plea to second-degree attempted weapon possession, a felony.
He acknowledged he had a .40 caliber semi-automatic loaded gun on bus.
When the judge warned that he would not be able to withdraw the plea as some people try to do, the rapper said, “I’m not one of those people.”
Prosecutors said small amounts of DNA found on the loaded weapon connected it to the platinum-selling artist. Defense lawyer Stacey Richman said the gun wasn’t Lil Wayne’s, and the testing technique was too problematic to prove otherwise.

You know, just once I’d like to see a rapper get busted for something original besides the stereotypical gun charges. I understand it’s part of their record contract to do time, but would it hurt to spice things up a bit? Maybe ride a tiger to Starbucks. Or, shit, fire white babies out of a cannon, I don’t care. Just show me some zazz!

    Hmmm, I guess Hip-hop has been saved by a federal judge. Nice one.

    Worst rapper alive. He should have gotten life so I don’t have to hear his incoherent rhymes.

    You know whats absolutely fucked up? Lindsay Lohan, Paris Hilton and god knows whatever other rich bitches in Hollywood, get minutes or hours in jail for DUI or DWI and this guy gets a year just for HAVING a gun. He didnt fire it, it was just there. Call me crazy but i think a car with a drunk behind the wheel is more dangerous than a loaded gun just sitting there.

  10. lol@dank

    Um dude its in a state with a no handgun period law. Then the gets caught with a handgun. Education is a cool thing, helps you understand whats going on. I recommend you get some more of it.

  11. social conscience

    Another positive attempt to perpetuate the ghetto-boy stereotytpe. You go wif your bad-ass self.

    #5 — love your post… very true.

    #6 — you’re an ignorant asshole. why is he a typical nigger? for having a gun? he is actually intelligent and talented. and at least he sounded respectful and honest in court. not so “typical” for a nigger, huh?

  13. not crunk

    I always thought it was funny (in a sad way) that he misspelled Little in his name.

  14. The Observer

    One less stupid moron no longer able to influence our nation’s kids. Unfortunately, these pieces of shit are like the Hydra; take one down and two more pop up.

  15. big tone

    how is he a typical n—– #6 all black people dont carry guns and u sound like a n—– i wonder if u even know what that means

  16. fearsarewishes

    He deserves a year in jail just for wearing that ridiculous hood rat getup.

  17. Deacon Jones

    A year, Pffff

    They should cane his fucking ass until he looks like the meat in the Taco Bell commercials. Let’s see how many more “thugs” keep packing

  18. Where's the clock necklace?

    Flava Flave? Is that you?

    Fuck that! This country sucks ass, we should all be entitled to forty cal semi autos.

  22. At least he admitted his mistakes and pleaded guilty.

  23. Scott

    #23, Rose, he admitted his mistakes and plead guilty because the prosecutor offered him a deal to plead guilty and do a year vs. the 3.5 years he would have gotten had he been convicted at trial. The evidence must have been overwhelming to make him change from his non-guilty plea.

  24. beep beep

    Typical Jew.

  25. He’s “got the hardest bars, just call him the warden.”

  26. FemmeFatale

    Call me stupid but if YOU are such a rich aka (BALLER) why in the world would you not hire a body guard that can carry a gun. This the second time this year you see person that can afford to get a body guard that can carry gun take measures in there own hands. They always fail when the do…. THen in state like NEW york that does not play with weapon charges. I personally think LIL wayne can use a little time out. Get is life back to normal he does way to many drugs. Plus he looking at more charges in Arizona.

  27. Madonna's Old Ass

    This is the best news ever.
    This means I won’t hear any of this losers horrible music for 12 months.
    He should have been arrested a long time ago for making such horrible tunes like “Lolipop”.

    Good luck in the can L.W. I bet some hard hitten brotha is gonna make your ass go “Burp, Burp”. Hahaha! That’s funny!

  28. Surrealcirce

    Yes, #18 . . . someone who finally agrees with me! We can elevate over-crowding in jails, the wasting of taxpayer’s $ on people who will never get rehabilitated – with just a couple of wacks (4 maximum because after that you can’t feel it anymore!). And no, I don’t believe in spanking children – just criminals who hold honest citizens and the nation’s laws in contempt!!!

  29. ******KrazyHotKelli**********

    He’z hot I would let him lick me all night! A zhame the Bruthuz have to pay for zmall zhit and white people get by with murder more or lezz.

  30. BruteHawk

    New York law sucks. A year in jail for the non-crime of not having a permission slip from his overlords to possess his own property? Yikes! The belligerent and coercive State is the only problem in this situation. #18 You’re drunk.

  31. yuki

    little bend over.

  32. me

    wtf is attempted weapon possession?

    @12 you should proof read what you type before posting.

  33. lol@KrazyHotKelli

    Look we all know you are pretty stupid but damn typing shit out like a retard is never going to get anywhere. Thanks for the laughs chickenhead.

  34. lol@KrazyHotKelli

  35. I wonder if he knows what the Kings are…

  36. luis

    how does this retard only get a year in jail for carrying a gun, but plaxico burress gets 3 years of sitting i prison. so much for the zero tolerance law for guns.

    does anyone see any injustice to this

  37. Zesty

    Okay, sooo I don’t think I’ve ever been angrier than when I just read all you shit heads talk about the most talentedest nigga ever/my favorite person ever/WEEZY F. I’m in fucking honors college as an English major and I’m definitely wiser than all you fucks. I guarantee all of you (cept for like the two fucking smart people on here that weren’t being douches) haven’t even fucking listened to a full Lil Wayne song, and if you have, you don’t know what the fuck he’s saying because you’re a stupid piece of shit. I’m Irish as fuck and I know what this dood’s saying because I’m not a tard or an ignorant fuck. Fucking take a look at your dumbass selves! The irony’s retarded hilarious. You sit in front of your computer with your Mountain Dew looking at pictures of foxy celebrities. Then, you see Lil Wayne up here and have to call him a nigger, untalented, and all this stupid shit that doesn’t even make sense, just to make yourself feel special because, as it’s pretty damn obvious, no one else will. Don’t you just feel sooo accomplished now? Leaving a hateful comment that’s worth nothing and serves no real practical purpose? I bet you do!

    Oh, and also, hope you lame-asses have awesome lives not smoking weed. You’re too fucking dumb for it anyways, it’s probably for the best.

  38. yaksik

    his @ss is gonna take a beating in jail from the sisters i hope, why does he need a gun if hes got private security goons to do that stuff for him?

  39. Turd the third

    Looks like Lil Wayne is going to be doin’ a lil’ time. Hope he meets some nice friendly dudes in there that want to get rrrrreal close to him… Idiot…

  40. Zesty

    See, you guys are ignorant as fuck! Wayne’s not gonna get a finger laid on him in the pen. When I said he was the talentedest nigga ever, I was for real. If anyone touches him they’d be mega fucked. He’s the biggest artist on the fucking planet now you tards. Oh, you wouldn’t know from your subdivisions.

  41. Turd the third

    Zesty, the way you are talking and carrying on, it sounds like you want to be the one fucking him…….da Turd is over and da out….goodnight

  42. Spoonman


    Honors college is for retards. English is a failure of a major. Be prepared for your job working at the DMV, you whiny little undergrad. Wayne has blown out the FF button in my car since he started jumping on tracks with Drake. Dude is awful. Worst fucking rapper ever.

  43. Zesty

    No homo.
    Nice name.

    What do you even do? You’re looking at comments on in your spare time! I just saw this shit about Wayne and wanted to see what people had to say about it and it only ended up infuriating me. I was expecting to see people backing him up, like they usually do, and maybe giving helpful information. Instead I found like 30 of the same exact comment, a comment that doesn’t even make sense:
    “Duuuuuhhhhh I can’t stand the sound of Wayne’s voice, fuck this shit. He sounds like too much like a black person and I can’t understand his nonsensical jive. He’s not a good rapper. In fact, what he really is, is an ignorant n*gger.”

    Good arguments, internet scrubs. I like them because they reflect America on a whole.

  46. newbie

    Had to comment…what the hell does “attempted weapon possession” mean? Is that kind of like attempted orgasm, or attempted diarrhea after eating a shitload (no pun intended, really) of chili beans? ‘splain plz.

  47. O'Roughly factor

    Ahh who cares, the real rappers are dead, retired, or doing local bars…
