From 'Free Weezy' to 'Weezy's Free': Lil Wayne gets out of jail

Lil Wayne gets out of jail In case you didn't RSVP on Facebook: Rapper Lil Wayne got out of jail Thursday morning, leaving New York's Rikers Island after serving eight months on a weapons charge.

Weezy, whose real name is Dwayne Carter Jr., was going to head home to Miami, his managers have said, where a party celebrating his release is scheduled for Sunday. A blurry picture of the free man was posted online Thursday.

The rapper pleaded guilty a year ago to attempted weapon possession, admitting he'd had a loaded, semiautomatic .40-caliber gun on his tour bus after a show in 2007. After a few false starts, he was sentenced to a year at Rikers and went in this past March, but got time off for good behavior despite being in solitary confinement since Oct. 4 after getting popped for possession of "music contraband"; headphones for an MP3 player were found hidden in his trash can.

While incarcerated, Lil Wayne hit No. 1 on the charts with his album "I Am Not a Human Being," released online on his 28th birthday in September. He also pleaded guilty to a count of drug possession, appearing via video in an Arizona court on June 21. No jail there, however -- he was later sentenced to three years' probation.

"I was never scared, worried nor bothered by the situation" behind bars, he said Tuesday through Weezythanxyou.com, a website he set up to give fans a glimpse of his life in jail. Missives from him were posted on his blog off and on during his incarceration.
