Lil Wayne on Rolling Stone’s latest cover
Lil Wayne is out of jail, what can be expected next? Of course, him on the cover of a major magazine!
The 28-year-old rapper opens up for the first time about his time in prison and reveals his biggest adversity was being deprived of conjugal visits. Wayne also tells Rolling Stone that during his stay at Rikers Island he got so good at Uno other inmates refused to play him.
“I’d bust a nigga’s ass at Uno,” he says. “We gamble for phone time. I’d take nigga’s commissary: Lemme get them cookies, lemme get them chips, get that soup.”
In addition to playing games, he read books, including biographies of Jimi Hendrix, Jim Morrison, Marvin Gaye, Joan Jett, Vince Lombardi and Anthony Kiedis. “[Kiedis’] Scar Tissue was really good,” he says. “I also read the Bible for the first time. It was deep! I liked the parts where some character was once this, but he ended up being that. Like he’d be dissing Jesus, and then he ends up being a saint. That was cool.”
