Boston (ChatterShmatter) – Rapper Lil Wayne is a free man yet again after serving 8-months in jail.
The rap star was locked up in prison for a period of 8-months due to a gun case. The case revolved around a loaded gun that was found in his tour bus back in 2007.
The rapper pleaded guilty to attempted weapon possession following a concert in Manhattan, New York.
He was put in jail back in March but was able to leave for periods of time. The sentence was originally supposed to be 1-year.
Lil Wayne has been receiving a lot of support recently from some very high-profile figured, including President Barack Obama, who confirmed Lil Wayne is on his iPod.
The rapper released a new album a month ago while in jail, I Am Not A Human Being. The album shot to No. 1 on the Billboard 200 chart a month ago and has been very successful.
The hope is that now that he is out of jail, he will be able to live a good clean and successful life. The rap community will certainly be happy to have Lil Wayne back.
