Fans of the rapper Lil Wayne have begun gathering outside New York's Rikers Island prison in anticipation of the 28-year-old rapper's release, reports MTV News. Wayne, real name Dwayne Michael Carter Jr, has served eight months behind bars for criminal possession of a weapon and marijuana, and despite freezing temperatures, his legion of followers began waiting in the prison's parking lot last night (3rd November 2010).
The rapper was expected to be released today (4th November 2010), however, prison guards have suggested that may not be the case. However, Wayne's fans seemed unperturbed, with one saying, "I'm a huge fan, and so are my girls. We were planning on coming in the morning, but we saw it on Twitter so we were like, 'Let's play it safe and come tonight'" Maxime Viard and Raphael Soula said that they quickly hurried down to the prison after learning of the rapper's impending release online, they said, "It's been a while. We didn't see him in, like, eight months".
Wayne's time in prison recently attracted the attention of former President Bill Clinton, who, in an interview remarked, "This guy's smart and he's got ability. You know, my daughter introduced me to rap and hip-hop music after I said some things she thought were not very smart. She said, 'Dad, you need to listen, all these people are smart", reports the UK Guardian newspaper.
