Lil Wayne in Jail

Keep Your Hancock

to Yourself

3/12/2010 9:09 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Lil Wayne in JailLil Wayne's signature move in jail won't have anything to do with his actual signature -- TMZ has learned he's been instructed not to sign a single autograph during his stint at Rikers Island.

A rep for the Correction Officer's Benevolent Association tells us officials issued the no autograph mandate because "Lil Wayne is not a celebrity in here."

The rep also tells us Wayne isn't getting any special treatment while at Rikers -- but we're told the rapper really hasn't requested anything out of the ordinary.

Weezy is nearly a week into the yearlong jail sentence he received for a gun-related crime -- but he could get out after 8 months if he stays on his best behavior.

It's a good thing there's a no autograph mandate. Can you imagine how much crap he would sign in a year? Everybody and there mama's going to send stuff up there for him to sign.

If he is not a celebrity then why would people want him to sign stuff?
He's obviously a celebrity, ( had the number 1 album )because otherwise they wouldn't have issued this rule.
It's called "double speak" and it's a tactic of propaganda when they say something that is opposite from the truth.

It's a sick world we live in. He's a celeb but a human being first and if he wants to pack heat then he should be able to. NY has draconian rules on carrying concealed weapons. That is why it is such a safe place. Sick world.
Babylon is falling and it will fall down upon itself.
Pop will eat itself.
Little Weezy should be freed. Would anyone feel threatened if Weezy was free? Such a sick world we live in.

He's not a celebrity? Who said that? What ignorant person said that?

What's Weezy's address in prison? Everyone should write him.
Makes me want to go out and buy his records when the evil system tries to crush him.

TMZ should post his address so people can write him.
The guy is obviously a celebrity or they wouldn't have issued their rule.

What do they mean "he is not getting special treatment".He is in a special cell because of his million dollars teeth.If they put him in General Population he'll lose every diamond in his teeth and every tooth in the process.Just like every other black with money that goes to jail he gets special food,special bedding and special whatever he wants and is willing to pay for.How stupid you people can be to think he is not getting special treatment.Duh....

Not to be racist here but it seems like every black person who "makes it" in the rap/hip-hop industry is either in trouble with the law, or is a target of a gang. Why is that world of music the only one who has so many criminals in it ? They make a few bucks but it doesn't give them any class, they still act ghetto.

First this is probably an order for the Guards, not that moron rapper.

Second, the LASO issued a similar order when OJ was brought into LA County Jail.
