Lil Wayne Covers Rolling Stone

Before Wayne’s countdown to lockdown, the rapper covers issue 1098 of RollingStone. The issue’s on newsstands today, but here’s a brief excerpt.

I don’t like to stop,” Wayne tells RS‘ Chris Norris. “I believe you stop when you die.” So in the weeks before he reports to Rikers Island, Wayne is keeping busy — recording tracks bound for Tha Carter IV (the album Cash Money staffers call “C4″ because it’ll be the bomb), shooting videos with his Young Money protégés, spending time with his growing family, and deliberately not asking anyone for advice about life on the inside. “This is Lil Wayne going to jail. Nobody I can talk to can tell me what that’s like,” he says. “I just say I’m looking forward to it.”

Update: Didn’t notice the gang sign flash at first but to be fair this an old shoot and I’m sure Weezy didn’t want this to be the cover photo. But oh well. Vanity Fair got Tiger and Jann got you. Ha.

    Rolling Stone continues to have the worst covers in the history of life. But oh, Sade gets a little spot on the the left corner by Mr. Carter’s pocket. That was nice of RS.

    Glad Sade didn’t get a huge spot.
    Overrated. Latest music is all average if not completely boring and uninspired.
    But its SADE so everyone is giving her an autopass.
    hope wayne doesnt come out sounding like Shyne did on the Khaled record. ha!

  • prolly

    from a first glance waaaaaaaaaaaaaaay boring. but love his khakis.

  • piff lighty!

    WHAT HE FORGOT IS HE’S REPPING A GANG!…BLOODS FOR INSTANT!…HE GONNA RUN INTO SOME REAL GANG MEMBERS CRIPS OR BLOOD OR WHOEVA AND ONE OF THEM IS GONNA TEST HIS G!…SO HE MAY BE LOOKING FORWARD TO IT BUT THEY LOOKING JUST AS FORWARD TO IT AS YOU ARE!…BETTER HIT THE PC ROUTE AND DO YA BID LIKE PLEXICO OR HIS TIME IS GONNA BE RUFF!

    For Wezzy to be rocking a red bandana, throwing up that gang sign & saying that he’s looking forward to going to Riker’s obviously means that Baby & Slimm already got some real Bloods on the inside that’s going to take care of Wezzy when he gets there

  • DARKAQUA

    FIRST……WHY IS THIS FOOL TALKING ABOUT HIMSELF IN THIRD PERSON???? HE LOOKS LIKE….MAN NEVERMIND…MY HEAD HURTS JUST LOOKING AT WAYNE.

    SADE DESERVES EVERY COVER COMING OUT….SHE’S 20+ IN THE GAME, CAN LEAVE,COME BACK AND STILL SELL RECORDS…HER GANGSTA IS WORLDWIDE!!

    SO I NEED PEOPLE TO PUT A MUTE ON THAT SILLY SH*T TALKIN’ BOUT SADE DOESN’T DESERVE THE COVER!!!

  • Interscope Employee

    there’s only 2 options I can see ;

    Either his ass wont get to jail…then all the “he snitched” rumors gon’ come out

    OR

    Baby & Slim paid some real niggaz in the Island to protect this punk bitch. Cuz aint no way he’s THAT cool, calm, collected. he aint built like that

  • http://rapradar.com Blakout615

    Lil Wayne said hes “fly like a butterfly doin the tootsieroll” but Sade is overrated???

    @rAND
    Yeah thats wat I was thinking. Baby gotta hav sum kinda connections upstate for wayne to be lookin “forward” to it.

  • MithritadesHD

    lol,the hate in these comments are staggering,I don’t know Wayne personally so I can’t assassinate the dudes character like yall but I hope he does his time cleanly and comes out a better man than when he went in,I KNOW how it is inside,so when he said he aint asking nobody how it is,I can respect that,everybody do their time differently…jail might be too good of a place for yall commenters but then again,I don’t know yall either and I hope I never do.

    Niggas and Flies….

  • B. Digital

    More than likely, his stay in jail will be similar to Plaxico Burress. Spend a couple of days in Rikers Island then get transferred to a medium security facility upstate.. But someone or some group will test him and I guarantee you he will not be looking forward to that.

  • bossupnugga

    this faggot been done…no buzz…nigga is wak anyways…lil BATTY BWOI kiss men wayne fuk dhi faggot..i wanna see da fags who support this nigga still…ugly ass martian lookin goofy shoes tight pants homo ass lil nigga lol we need real hard rap backk from real people! goin to jail will do hiphop a favor u bitch

  • Hi Haters

    Wayne gonna be OK. Bloods run Rikers and they gonna look out for weezy. YN’s “ya playd ya self” is too direspectful. cmon son. its the gun laws in NY Shitty. Stop blaming the victims. Keep ya head up wayne.

  • Will

    2pac did it 2pac Did it

    its a ploy a la tupac shakur prison stint niggas going to be getting interviews in that bitch then get out and his shit goign to be seen as the hardest shit out only differenc is 2pac music did bang wayne shit prolly goin to be horrible ut still its going to be noticed as the hardest shit out just like with That Wacc Ass Gucci Man album people keep hyping and shyne wacc ass Whos Next the nigga Mystikal or Turk

    Prison and Serving time has become a Publicity stunt ever since Paris Hilton went and did her 3 mins I mean 3 weeks I mean months in jail motherfuccas is going to jail for 30 minutes and 2 hours

    and its evident in the rap Game Wayne might not even go to jail Like The Way Game did he tried to make it seem as if he was still in Jail when he had really got out like 8 days after he got in the fact that homie was trying to hide that he was out is showing these motherfuccas are just trying to promote themselves

    Game made niggas believe he was going to be down for months and turn out cuz got out like in a short week the fact he didnt come forward like Im not in Jail makes you wonder if homie was ever in Jail I mean wtf is their proof of being locced up a mugshot even that Nas video where he admitted to be intoxicated when the breath test came out good makes you think these niggas wanna go to jail

    I remember when that CO pic of Ross just came out he tried to post his mug shot like he was tough cuz got arrested for a DUI

  • Will

    think about it cuz shitty rocc album come out a week or days before he goes in watch that shit sell 500 k or a million in a week

    and am Im the only person that noticed having all them tattoos makes niggas look dirty like they dont bathe

  • So Icy Boi!

    Do you niggaz know that when celebrity’s go to jail the dont be populated around other people ?? yall act like he gonna get beat up or fuked…… do nigga gonna be in jail living better then most people on the streets

  • CaniBlog?

    at the end of the day cash rules everything so wayne ain’t got to worry bout nothing Birdman and his people got connects but more importantly got money so wayne will be better off in prison than he is out here.

  • ms_starr

    Lil’ Wayne is music. Without him, there is none.

    My programmer is trying to convince me to move to .net from PHP. I have always disliked the idea because of the expenses. But he’s tryiong none the less. I’ve been using Movable-type on various websites for about a year and am nervous about switching to another platform. I have heard excellent things about blogengine.net. Is there a way I can transfer all my wordpress content into it? Any kind of help would be greatly appreciated!
