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 most of it by his lonesome self. When guards found the rapper's contraband iPod, charger and headphones, they sent him straight 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, 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.

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