Lil Wayne is well on his way to become a rap legend, as the southern rapper is among the most popular and talented rappers of all time.
Contrary to prior published reports, Wayne was officially been released from Rikers Island yesterday morning.
Earlier published reports stated that the rapper’s release had been delayed by one day, but this is not the case.
Lil Wayne was released from Rikers Island yesterday (November 4th), after serving eight months in prison for a gun possession charge in July of 2007.
A representative at the facility confirmed the release at around 8:35AM.
Although, Wayne is now officially a free man, other legal troubles are upon him and his label Young Money.
The barrage of lawsuits against the Lil Wayne and Birdman run Cash Money records for shady business practices continues, as Lil Wayne will be served a federal court summons and complaint for copyright infringement before his projected November 5 prison release date.
Reports in the media is that an Atlanta producer Mali Boi claims that Wayne committed copyright infringement on the song “Mrs. Officer,” which features Bobby Valentino.
Mali Boi, real name Michael Bradford, claims he is the original author/producer of the song. To support his case, the producer sought the opinion of Musicologist Dr. Gregory A. McPherson, who found prominent elements of Mali Boi’s 2003 composition in the “Mrs. Officer” track known today.
The song have since sold more than 2 million copies in the United States.
