Lil’ Wayne will be heading to prison tomorrow to serve a one-year sentence for felony gun possession, and even though we think no crime should go unpunished, we’re sad for the void he’ll leave in our lives for twelve months. Wayne has been busy recording The Carter IV and only just released his rock album Rebirth last week, so there won’t likely be a shortage of his music in 2010, but what of the antics we’ve grown to love? We’ve come up with a few ghosts of Lil’ Wayne’s past that we plan to revisit whenever we need of healthy dose of Dwayne Carter Jr.
Last month, Rihanna was caught making out with Drake, the DeGrassi star turned rapper. Despite the “just friends” denials that followed, Drake yelled “shout out to Rihanna, I love you baby!” on stage soon after and the stars continue to spend time together. Last week they both attended a Black Eyed Peas concert, and Monday night the pair showed up at the afterparty for Year One on the Empire Hotel roof. “She and Drake were attached at the hip…they are definitely together, but really trying to be discreet,” says Page Six‘s source.
Drake has a Top 20 single, “Best I Ever Had,” and he’s the opening act for Lil Wayne‘s “America’s Most Wanted” summer tour. Are they trying to avoid the attention a public relationship would receive—or is his career benefiting from the gossip?

Rihanna spent Monday night bowling in Manhattan, but she didn’t strike out. Page Six spotted the singer smooching with Aubrey Graham, an aspiring rapper best known for playing Jimmy Brooks on DeGrassi: The Next Generation. “They were really cute together,” said their source, noting they left around midnight. Graham, Drake to Canadian rap fans, plans to release his debut album by the end of 2009. Think he’ll get her to cameo?
