Lil Wayne Released from Prison

Lil Wayne was released from prison on Thursday morning after serving an eight-month sentence on Rikers Island. In 2007, a loaded, semiautomatic .40-caliber gun was found on his tour bus. The rapper pleaded guilty a year ago to attempted weapon possession and was sentenced to a year in prison, but he was credited for good behavior and released after 8 months. 

According to the Los Angeles Times, Lil Wayne has been in solitary confinement since October 4 after being found in possession of headphones for an MP3 player, or "music contraband."

While in prison last June, Lil Wayne pleaded guilty to drug possession in an Arizona courtroom via video. He was sentenced to three years' probation in that case.

Lil Wayne or "Weezy" has a blog where he's kept up with fans while jailed: On his latest post, "The End of a Long Journey," he thanks his fans and friends and family for their support while he was in jail.

Lil Wayne said he received over 300 letters of support from fans on just his first day of jail. He said that when he read the letters his "heart smiled." He says that he will continue to thank his fans and respond to their letters now that he is out of jail.

While he was imprisoned, Lil Wayne's latest album, "I Am Not a Human Being," reached No. 1 on the charts. It was released online in September on his 28th birthday.
