Dave Itzkoff calls attention to a blog post by Lil Wayne wherein he describes his daily prison routine:
Wake up around 11AM. Have some coffee. Call my kids, and my wonderful mother. I then shower up. Read fan mail. Have lunch. Back on the phone. Read a book or write some thoughts down. Have dinner. Phone. Pushups. Then I listen to ESPN on the radio. Read the bible, then sleep. That’s my day.
Wayne (née Dwayne Michael Carter, Jr.) is currently serving a one-year prison sentence at Rikers Island for attempted possession of a weapon after a gun was found on his tour bus in 2007.
Last month, he literally phoned in a verse he wanted appended to Drake’s “Light Up.” Best lyric: “Behind bars, but the bars don’t stop / Recording over the phone / I hope the call don’t drop.” Indeed.

Sounds delightful and relaxing, really, (except for the Bible part).
can I just say this is totally rad!? Lil Wayne and I could be best friends lol (except for the ESPN and the Bible part…I’d choose True Blood and the Tao of Pooh)
Outside of the prison bit, this sounds great. Simplicity; I love every bit of his routine, through and through.
11:00 a.m.! That’s one unusual prison.
One year prison sentence for “attempted possession of a weapon”? Jesus!
Um, does anyone have a cudgel I can borrow? There, can I go to prison now? I could do with some lie-ins and some time for reading…
