Lil Wayne pleaded guilty a year ago to attempted weapon possession, admitting he'd had a loaded, semiautomatic .40-caliber gun on his tour bus after a show in 2007. Lil Wayne was sentenced to a year at Rikers and went in this past March, but got time off for good behavior despite being in solitary confinement since Oct. 4 after getting popped for possession of "music contraband."

Lil Wayne reported to prison in March after reaching a plea deal resulting from a 2007 gun charge after a Manhattan concert stop.

Now Lil Wayne will have to make a pit stop in Arizona to sign paperwork stemming from a 2008 drug case, his lawyer James Tilson and the he has to start a 36-month probation term. That unsupervised probation will be transferred to his home state of Florida.

Wayne told fans through a website that he "was never scared, worried nor bothered" behind bars. he also didn't miss a beat, watching his latest album, "I Am Not a Human Being" hit No. 1 on the chart after it was released in September while Wayne was behind bars.
