Wayne joins fellow rapper, T.I., who is also spending a year in prison for gun charges. And if Wayne follows T.I.'s example, he can make jail one hell of a good P.R. campaign. T.I.'s pre-jail record, Paper Trail, scored the rapper two #1 singles, and he even has a movie coming out while he's incarcerated.
With Wayne's reputation as a prolific artist, I don't doubt that he will be releasing a wealth of new material leading up to, and during the time that he's away. Brian 'Baby' and Ronald 'Slim' Williams, CEOs of Cash Money Records, said that they would stand behind their artist and longtime friend.
The sentencing will take place in February
