According to HipHopWired.com, Lil Wayne was just released from prison
Lil Wayne is officially a free man.
As previously reported, a Rikers Island guard confirmed that the Young Money head would not be released today as scheduled, due to a miscalculation of his prison time.
Another official at Rikers Island confirms to MTV however that the rapper was just discharged at 8:35 a.m.
An attorney for Wayne says he’ll travel to Arizona within 72 hours of his release and fill out documentation to start his 36-month probation term for a separate drug paraphernalia case.
He is scheduled to have a “welcome-back” party in Miami over the weekend.
