We heard it from Diddy earlier this week , and now [artist id=”510062″]Lil Wayne[/artist] has confirmed it himself: The hip-hop rock star is doing all right as he serves his yearlong prison sentence at Rikers Island. On Wednesday morning (May 19), footage was released of Weezy phoning from jail to DJ Scoob Doo, urging him to release the video for “Steady Mobbin’ ” and talking about his recent “contraband” incident in jail .
“I’m coolin’. Ya feel me. I’ll be home soon,” Wayne said in the video that shows Scoob talking to him on speaker phone. “If you worryin’, don’t worry too much, but keep worryin’. If you ain’t worried, then something’s wrong. But you know, it’s Nino Brown, I got the penthouse suite up here in Rikers, man. I got my feet up. Ya smell me. My team is still holding it down, man. They keepin’ the flood open. I already know how it go.
“Ain’t too much, I got in a little trouble and whatnot, you feel me,” Wayne added about being caught with headphones and an MP3 charger. “Yeah, they tried to bang me with that. … But I can’t live without my music, Scoob. You know how it is, man. I needed my music. It’s all good. I had to take my little slipup. I ain’t trippin’. Players f— up.”
Then the phone beeped. Wayne said that means he didn’t have much more time for the call. The two went on to promote the upcoming “Nino Brown Story 3” DVD, which is coming out soon.
