After serving an 8 month sentence at Riker's Island on weapons charges, Lil Wayne was freed today much to the delight of his fans and supporters. Unfortunately, this week saw T.I. turn himself in to serve 11 months for a probation violation, stemming from a weapons conviction back in 2009.
Wayne watched from behind bars as his Young Money label flourished with the success of Drake and Nicki Minaj, as well as the success of his own album 'I Am Not A Human Being', which became the first album by a rapper since Tupac's 1995 'Me Against the World' to top the billboard charts from behind bars. Now all eyes are on Wayne as fans look forward to the highly anticipated 'The Carter 4' album.
Like Lil Wayne, T.I. plans on releasing his new album 'No Mercy' from prison. Previously title 'King Uncaged', 'No Mercy' will hit stores on December 7th, a followup to his double platinum selling album 'Papertrail'. Check out the first single "Get Back Up" featuring Chris Brown.
