Of all the things we associate with prison time, card games you played with your bored babysitter would not have made the list. After being released after eight months of his one-year sentence in November, Lil’ Wayne opens up about prison life in Rolling Stone, including, most importantly, how good he got at the card game Uno. “I’d bust a n—a’s a– at Uno,” the rapper boasts. “We gamble for phone time. I’d take n—a’s commissary: Lemme get them cookies, lemme get them chips, get that soup.” Does a crazy-rich musician really have to take soup from his fellow inmates? We’re sore winners too, but come on.
While Wayne spent a month in solitary at the end of his sentence for having an iPod charger, an inmate named Charles took the rap for Yeezy. “He was a solid n—a. Shout-out to Charles…Solitary was the worst. No TV. No radio. No commissary. Basically you’re in there 23 hours a day,” Lil’ Wayne admits. Charles had better have a million in crisp $20 bills waiting when he when he gets out, is all we’re saying. When it comes down to it though, according to Wayne, celibacy was the hardest part of jail of his stay. “Anyone starts looking good in that b—-, Like, ‘Damn, look at HER with that uniform on, Mrs Officer!’” No amount of soup in the world can take your mind off the ladies in that case, huh Wayne?
