Lil Wayne Arrives at Rikers Island

3/8/2010 7:24 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Lil Wayne Arrives at Rikers IslandLil Wayne has arrived at Rikers Island jail in New York -- which means he only has 364-and-a-half more days to go.

Weezy arrived to the NY jail in a corrections van -- we're told because the rapper is a "high-profile inmate," he was not transported with any other prisoners.

As of now, we're told the rapper is still undergoing the admissions procedure at the jail -- which entails a physical & mental health exam & questionnaire.

It has yet to be determined whether Lil Wayne will be in the general population at Rikers -- or if he will be given his own cell.

And since moving can make any convicted felon hungry, the jail chef has the perfect dish for Wayne's first night -- noodles with beef sausage & marinara sauce, steamed greens, a mixed green salad, whole wheat bread, sliced peaches & a fruit drink or tea.

Lil' WayneWeezy was sentenced to a year in the big house for a gun charge -- but he could be out sooner if he stays on his best behavior.

For those interested, I am taking a collection up to buy him a diamond encrusted rubber donut for him to have to sit on when he gets out. It will have a built in recording of MC Hammers "You can't touch this!" that will play whenever he sits on it.

He got a raw deal. If this was Enimen or any white artist found with a gun on a tour bus, he would have paid a fine, gotten a slap on the wrist and be home right now.

He got a 1 year prison term for being black, famous, rich and a threat to white surburbia because they hate the fact their teenagers buy his music, watch his videos and love gansta rap music. They don't have a problem with Marilyn Manson's devil music or any drug addicted white artist. Every black artist is a threat, ghetto and dangerous.

It's a classic case of modern day judicial lynching.

It would be a raw deal if Wayne didn't have an outstanding charge pending in Arizona for a tour bus full of weed, coke, x and even MORE GUNS. He's going right back in the clink once he does his time for this charge. And Eminem would've been locked up too if he had an unlicensed firearm in the most gun-strict state in America (NY). Plus, Eminem has more charges on his record than Weezy's fake blood self has. Get your facts straight before you post nonsense.

And by the way: I don't know if you've noticed, but YOUR president is BLACK (not really, but african americans sure like to label Obama a negro). There are also many prominent, respected global figures that are African American as well. It isn't 1956, and your "its because hes a BLACK MAN" argument ain't gonna fly these days. Perhaps mainstream America associating blacks with gun violence wouldn't be an issue if Blacks didn't glorify and condone gun violence in the vast majority of their music and culture. Just sayin'.
