Lil Wayne is allegedly getting preferential treatment in Rikers Island.
Sources tell the Village Voice that Weezy’s getting everything from take-out food to advanced notice as to when his cell is going to be searched.
We’re told that when guests visit Lil Wayne — whose real name is Dwayne Carter — they bypass the general visiting room where other inmates’ visitors wait. Wayne’s visitors are picked up by an official in a separate car, who drives them to the Eric M. Taylor Center, where he is serving an eight-month jail term in New York after admitting in October 2009 to having a loaded, .40-caliber semiautomatic weapon on his tour bus. Lil Wayne’s guests are driven back after the visit is up — which is usually longer than the one hour allowed for other inmates’ visitors.
Jail staffers also bring Lil Wayne food from the nearby Jackson Hole restaurant and local pizzeria, says our source. They are also said to tip him off so he knows when he is going to be searched.
None of this surprises us at all.
