Lil Wayne to rap his way home

Lil Wayne is to record new raps on the plane home from jail.

The 'I Am Not A Human Being' rapper is expected to be released from a jail term in New York for firearms offences on Thursday (04.11.10), and the team at his label Cash Money records are reportedly looking for a plane with studio equipment so he can lay down new rhymes as he flies, likely to either his native New Orleans or Miami.

Bryan Williams, a.k.a. Birdman, co-founder of Cash Money, said: "You can't keep him out of the studio."

He added that Wayne - who famously freestyles his raps in the studio without writing anything down - has taken to recording his lyrics for the first time since starring in one of his earliest groups while in jail.

Bryan added: "He hasn't written out rhymes since the Hot Boys. There's a different swagger coming from Wayne, different things to talk about."

Wayne's manager, Cortez Bryant, added: "He's had time to take everything in from the early years to his going in. We've been at such a fast pace, moving, moving, moving, that he's finally been able to put some things in perspective."

Wayne has had plenty of time to reflect in the latter part of his sentence, which he started in March, after he was moved to a solitary confinement cell earlier this month after he was caught with a contraband MP3 player and charger in his cell.

Meanwhile fellow rapper Eminem has said he's looking forward to Lil Wayne's release, telling US radio station Shade 45: "I'm definitely looking forward to Wayne getting out. I can't wait to hear what he comes up with next."

The material Wayne has been working on is expected to be recorded for his forthcoming 'Tha Carter IV' album.
