Think you could survive a month without your iPod? Apparently Lil Wayne couldn’t. The incarcerated rapper, who is due to be released from Rikers Island on November 2, was busted for having a pair of headphones and a charger for his MP3 player in his cell, according to the New York Post.

The Post notes that Weezy will now serve out the rest of his sentence in solitary confinement, and will spend up to 23 hours a day in an isolation cell. Another inmate was found to be carrying his MP3 player.

And perhaps even worse than having his music yanked away—Wayne’s phone privileges have apparently been relegated to one personal phone call a week.

Lil Wayne, who’s been in the slammer on gun charges since March, turned 28 last week. The music video for “No Love,” his collab with Eminem, premiered on Thursday. Weez’s latest album  I Am Not A Human Being is currently the top download on iTunes.
