It has been confirmed that Lil Wayne will not serve extra time behind bars after a recent prison violation.

The “Cash Money” rapper was moved to solitary confinement after being found in possession of an iPod charger and headphones, which are considered to be contraband items.

In addition to the headphones and charger officials found inside a potato chip bag in a garbage can in Wayne’s cell — inmates can only listen to music on gear sold at the jail commissary — they also found the MP3 player itself in another inmate’s cell.

“It doesn’t change his projected release date,” Stephen Morello, a spokesperson for the New York City Department of Correction, told MTV News in a statement. “It’s a serious infraction because it’s contraband, but it’s not a weapon, and by comparison to a more violent infraction of the rules, like assaulting another inmate or an officer.”

Wayne is expected to be released on November 4 after serving 8 months out of a 12-month sentence for gun possession charges.
