Lil Wayne Has ‘Rolling Stone’ Covered

In late December, a happy-to-be-out-of-jail Lil Wayne posted a photo from the set of his Rolling Stone cover shoot over on WeezyThanxYou.com. Now the fruits of his strenuous day of striking poses in front of the talented lens of Mark Seliger have finally been revealed. The “6 Foot 7 Foot” rapper talks to the mag about life behind the iron in his first interview since leaving Rikers. Catch a few quotes from the piece and the full cover after the jump. “I’d bust a nigga’s ass at Uno,” Wayne says about how he’d pass time in jail (and clearly—with Uno—he’s speaking this writer’s language). “We gamble for phone time. I’d take nigga’s commissary: Lemme get them cookies, lemme get them chips, get that soup.”

He also discusses his month spent in solitary confinement while in prison after being caught with the naughty contraband of—gasp!—a MP3 charger.

“Solitary was the worst. No TV. No radio. No commissary. Basically you’re in there 23 hours a day,” Weezy explains. There was, however, one window where Rolling Stone notes he could watch cars go by.

“I used to sit at that motherfucker all day,” the MC says.

Weezy’s issue of Rolling Stone hits stands this Friday (January 21).
