Lil Wayne "Stomps" the "Yard" in Prison, Producers Scramble to Create "Stomp the Yard IV - Lil Wayne: SO MANY YARDS LEFT FOR STOMPING." Related News: Possible Dysentery.

Lil-Wayne-AP-Photo Lil Wayne, who began serving a year long gun charge in New York's Rikers Island jail complex in March, has gotten himself into trouble again.  Seems there's one fight he won't stop fighting, no matter how much trouble befalls our music star.

Lil Wayne won't stop beatin' up that beat, even in jail, where officers found a charger, headphones and a watch that doubles as an MP3 player in his jail cell. [This story would so rock [PUN] if it were a cassette deck. - Ed.] in his cell earlier this week.  City Correction Department spokesman, Stephen Morello, has indeed confirmed the young man's offense.  It's not entirely a serious offense, but, said a source, "You just get an infraction, a violation ...[y]ou lose some 'good time.'"

The source added, "It depends on the severity of the infraction. Level one is the worst. Then you have [level] two or three. [This infraction] could be a level one. He has to go on trial, and based on evidence, they'll make their determination."

Officers said the music player itself turned up in another inmate's nearby cell, reportedly in a bag of chips. It is not yet known whether the snack was regularRap-Snacks Frito-Lay chips or the more esteemed and appropriate, "Rap Snacks."  Officials have not yet released that information, declaring the snack is considered material evidence to the case.  Both men were charged with infractions that aren't crimes and will be subject to a jail disciplinary process, not a court. Punishments can include being segregated from other inmates.

Lil Wayne began serving his term in March in the city's Rikers Island jail complex. He pleaded guilty in October to attempted criminal possession of a weapon, admitting he had a loaded semiautomatic gun on his bus in 2007.

As for how Wayne obtained the items, the source said that despite the level of security in the jail, contraband materials are sometimes smuggled in during the inmates' visiting time.

"There's a lot of ways it can happen," the source continued. "Through a visit, or it could be through someone else. In the visiting area the barrier between an inmate and the visitor is a small table — that's about it. It could happen between when you first come in and [the visitor] gives you a hug."

Another source, who demanded anonymity, a dark room and a thick cloak, confirmed the contraband theory with video s/he gave to me personally, through a dimly lit tube of something called a "web," and something some people refer to as "an overactive imagination."  Here, for the first time anywhere, is the video footage of the smuggling.

Born Dwayne Carter, Lil Wayne had the best-selling album of 2008 with "Tha Carter III," which won a Grammy for "Best Rap Album."

As he faced incarceration with his career in high gear, he pledged to keep music on his mind (just like those "Footloose" chirrens) while doing time. "I'll have an iPod, and I'll make sure they keep sending me beats," he told Rolling Stone in February. "I'll be still rapping in there, have a gang of raps ready when I come home."

With good behavior, he could be released as early as November. Be careful if he gives you the watch after his sentence is fulfilled.  You don't know where it's been.
