Lil Wayne would have dropped tracks from his jail cell if Rikers Island allowed such a thing. However, according to Rolling Stone, Lil Wayne will start laying down tracks as soon as he’s out of the joint and on a plane. The rap artist with the world-famous, diamond-encrusted teeth will be laying down tracks on board his special jet equipped with all his recording needs; apparently eight months in the can fills a man with a certain urgency.

Incarceration of Lil Wayne documented by himself

During months of “furious work” in his Rikers Island cell, Lil Wayne never stopped writing lyrics. Wayne hasn’t rhymed since Hot Boys, although Wayne’s business partner Bryan “Birdman” Williams said he is rhyming once again, reports the Rolling Stone. Those close to Lil Wayne believe that the time he spent in solitary confinement in early October after being caught for the second time with “music-related contraband” lit a fire in the MC. There will be a sharper edge to the material that comes from it.

Calling it ‘A different swagger’

Listening to Lil Wayne’s music will be like hearing “a different swagger.” At least, that’s what Williams says. Lil Wayne’s next LP, “Tha Carter IV,” should be released in early 2011. Fans will still have plenty of Lil Wayne to enjoy until then, as his current album “I Am Not a Human Being” topped Billboard two weeks ago. Lil Wayne had a very human experience, though, leading to and throughout his incarceration. This is what Lil Wayne’s manager, Cortez Bryant, says will lead him to somewhere creative in his music, reports Rolling Stone.
