    Rapper Lil Wayne will be forced into solitary confinement for the final month of his prison term. He was slapped with the solitary confinement punishment after being caught illegally listening to music on an Mp3 player in May. The device was considered illegal contraband and now Weezy is paying for it.

    Weezy, born Dwayne Carter, will spend the rest of his sentence in his jail cell for 23 hours a day until he is released on November 4. He will exit his cell for medical and hygienic reasons only. He will enjoy one hour of recreation time per day, without the company of fellow inmates. He has also been limited to one personal phone call per week. Talk about making the man's final days in jail tough! I have to go on record as saying that this punishment is ridiculous. Weezy has proven to be a pretty model prisoner, blogging about sports and music while behind bars, and reportedly helping at risk inmates. Does he really need to be stuffed into his cell for the next month over an infraction that happened in May? I understand that inmates are not allowed to smuggle in contraband such as electronic devices and that concessions should not be made for someone who breaks the rules simple because they are famous. But it just seems harsh. Free Weezy.

    Do you think Lil Wayne's punishment is overly harsh?
