Lil Wayne Banished to

Solitary Confinement

10/4/2010 4:45 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Lil Wayne has been tossed in Rikers Island's version of solitary confinement after he was found to have a pair of headphones and an MP3 charger in his cell.
0630-lil-wayne-bn-tmz-01-creditWeezy will be in punitive segregation, but he was already in a private cell. The difference is ... now he will have less interaction with inmates and will spend up to 23 hours a day in an isolation cell.

His out-of-cell time is now restricted to visits, religious services and one hour of recreational time and his phone privileges are reduced to one personal phone call a week.

Wayne was found with a pair of headphones and a charger for an MP3 player and another inmate was said to be hiding the MP3 player.

Wayne has been locked up since March on a gun possession charge.

You guys ran a VERY SIMILAR story like this about Lil Wayne in May 2010. This story was titled "Lil Wayne Nailed in Prison" uploaded on TMZ 5/11/10...check your records. The only difference was you mentioned the charger as being for an iPod.

So is this the same story? Or is this his second time having headphones, music, etc? I'm confused....

Now if that was Lindsay Lohan & the CA legal system they would have released her and given her cash for her troubles.

Man, leave him alone!! It's not like HE smuggled the headphones and charger in. Why don't they go after the one who got past security and let him be.

The sad part about my comment is, I'm 40, white, female and don't know a thing about Lil' Wayne but, still, I even can see the wrong in this. They need to go after the one who gets this stuff past security. Not the user or holder. Please, our jails need serious help. I bet it was a guard who gave it to him. Stop blaming the innocent and go after the culprits!! Isn't he about due for release? And, now I bet they'll make him do more time. Give me a break!! Just let him be!

boo-hoo. and dani? wtf? he was caught with the contraband, so he is responsible. he asked someone to smuggle it in. they just weren't stupid enough to get caught. this freak needs to stay where he is.

Why is he the only celeb that has gotten this? They make a mockery of the justice system with all of these other celebs and this is the only celeb they treat like normal folk? Please lol.
