It may have been six years now since Lil Wayne spent his eight months in prison after being found guilty for attempted criminal possession of weapons, but talk still turns back to it from time to time. In fact, Lil Wayne has been talking about his experience inside, revealing that getting visits from fellow music stars such as Kanye West and Diddy made the whole thing seem a lot more real for him.
Lil Wayne was chatting to the Associated Press, when he explained to them, "When I was there, actually talking to them during the visitation, they made it so real. They threw all the 'Who's in this room' out of there. That was thrown out the window. They were like, 'How you feeling? What are you going through? Do you need anything, like do you really need anything? Do your parents need anything?' And then, I said the moment it hit me was going back up to the cell."
He added, "It was due to the people around (me). When I say the people around me, I mean the prisoners, the guards. ... They took all the cliche (out) of whatever I thought it was gonna be, they took that and threw it right out the window. They made me feel like, for lack of a better word, to say like I was at home. And it was everybody. ... Nobody wants to be there, not even the guards. So when you come through there, for everybody to treat you the same. ... Whatever it was, it worked."
Since being released from prison, Lil Wayne has tried to get his life back on track and to focus on the important things in life, by putting his all back into his music. Lets hope that he has learnt his lesson
