US rapper Lil Wayne faces a year in prison after pleading guilty to gun charges arising from a 2007 arrest.

The 27-year-old admitted attempted criminal possession of a weapon in a plea deal and will be sentenced at New York State Supreme Court in February.

The rapper - born Dwayne Michael Carter Jr - was arrested in July 2007 when a gun was found on his tour bus after a hip-hop concert in Manhattan.

His sixth album Tha Carter III was the best-selling album in the US in 2008.

The record won best rap album at the Grammy awards in February, where Lil Wayne picked up three other prizes.
So, on a scale from one to wrong, how wrong is it of me to primarily think that it will be nice to have a year of hip-hop without any Lil' Wayne in it? :eek: :D

it's probably one or two steps further from wrong than my wish that whatever umm, how to put this...experiences of receiving undesired insertion, fix that wack voice of his.

If you are reading this, prisoners of the New York Penitentiary System...It fits in both ends...BOTH ENDS!!

The only reason he wants to be behind bars is because TI did it and look how popular he became.... Lil Wayne is a piece of sh*t, he acts all as if he had a hard time in time when he grew up as a little brat cuz his father Bird-Man was/is a successful rapper.

He's only doing it to get some real street cred. I say lock him up and throw away the key... too bad its only taking one p.o.s. off the street...

In my opinion far too many of these urban hip/hop wanna-bes get in trouble with the law and I wonder if that is part of the act? What message are they sending youth through the hip/hop culture that seems to glorify violence (through its lyrics) and lawlessness (though arrest and detention of many of its musicians). I say this guardedly but perhaps hip/hop is not a good model for youth to follow, if "Lil' Wayne" and like thugs are its emissaries...

I've only ever seen him on a couple of award shows (MTV ones I think :rolleyes: ), initial thoughts were that he was a tit. I see no reason to change this train of thought now :p

The guy is a kook. At least (it seems) his popularity is on the downfall finally. I dont care if he goes to jail, I just hope that people stop buying his crap and giving him money.
