On February 9th, rap star Lil' Wayne will be put behind bars after gun-related charges.
According to MSNBC, the star admitted plead guilty to these felony gun possession charges and will be held in prison for 12 months.
The rapper was quoted in Rolling Stone as saying, "I don't like to stop. I believe you stop when you die."
Lil' Wayne has been keeping busy before serving jail time by recording new music for his upcoming album, shooting music videos and spending time with his family.
MTV news says Lil' Wayne was arrested for the related charges in July of 2007 after a concert. MTV also reports "Weezy," as he is often referred to as, is giving up "syrup," a mixture of codeine a promethazine, cold turkey as he serves his sentence.
Rolling Stone quotes him saying, "It ain't that easy -- feels like death in your stomach when you stop doing that sh--," Lil' Wayne said. "You gotta learn how to stop. You gotta go through detox."
The rapper will face 12 months but chooses to see purpose in this event, saying in Rolling Stone, "Everything is meant to be. I know it's an experience that I need to have if God's putting me through it."
