Lil Wayne

in Protective Custody

3/8/2010 4:20 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Lil Wayne just got a judge to agree to place him in protective custody while he serves one year in jail for a gun conviction.

videos
The judge asked Wayne before sentencing if he wanted to make a statement but Lil just shook his head no.

After he was sentenced, Lil Wayne was cuffed, turned to his fans in the courtroom and bowed his head.

Lil Wayne also asked for special medical attention while in the pokey because of his dental problems.

Lil Wayne's mentor, Birdman, was in court to bid him farewell.

This is the fourth time Wayne was supposed to be sentenced. The first time was postponed because of dental surgery and the second and third times were because of a fire in the courthouse.

Ha ha tough guy!! however, he will find out that protective custody means solitary confinement 24-hour lock down. one hour exercise a day. very restricted in every way and unpleasant as all get out. They want it to be that way to discourage people from asking for it. Most inmates cant take that for very long, Way worse than being in the general population and taking a beat down once and a while. He will be begging to be in general before long.Then again, he is a celeb. We'll see.

Oh yeah right protective custody. He's played a thug for years and sent a bad message to the community. Now that he's faced with dealing with real thugs, he needs protective custody! Another Studio Gangsta.

If I were a rapper I'd put enough money on the tough guys' books so I'd own that cell block while I was there. Hiding out like a pansy. LOL. Time goes by a lot faster when you're in GP. Been there-done that.

These thugs aren't so BAD when reality hits. What a whiney weasel. HAHAHAHA. SAVE ME SAVE ME....I'd throw his @ss right in the middle of general population and let him find out what a tough guy he is. Shoot, thats a hoot. Sissy boy.

This is a lie. Wayne is with the general population by his own request. Just check the New York Daily News.

Weazy is chillin in protective Custody! He doesn't have contact with the other inmates (drug dealers, ship lifters, rapist , murderers) He's not really doing time. I hope he doesn't out rapping about how he was running things... Ghost face killer, Flava Flav, Slick Rick, True Life etc. all did their time in general population. Sounds like lil Weazy is a lil Wussy. I heard he's putting commissary money in all the bloods commissary account

I feel all people as famous as Lil Wayne should be put separate.He has alot of fans that want him to be safe.There could be someone who might want to hurt him and besides making music he has children who need him.Weezy I hope the year goes by quickly because all your fans miss you and cant wait for you to be on stage again.Lov Nikki
