Famously Hardworking Rapper Pleads Guilty to Drug Charges While Already in Prison

How impressive is this? Friday morning, Lil Wayne managed to file a guilty plea in an outstanding drug case from 2008 — in which he was booked with a breathtaking array of charges after his tour bus was pulled over near Yuma, Arizona, including possession of a narcotic drug for sale, misconduct involving weapons, possession of drug paraphernalia, and possession of dangerous drugs (namely, an ounce of cocaine, four ounces of marijuana, and 41 grams of Ecstasy) — while in prison. He did so over a live video feed from Rikers, and will most likely get 36 months of probation in return (the official sentencing is scheduled for June 30). For those keeping track at home, the plea bargain follows sports blogging, life-saving, prison-rule flouting, and rapping as things Wayne has accomplished while in jail. Unbelievable. [MTV]
