Rapper Lil Wayne struggled with his new-found freedom in the days following his prison release last November – because he wasn’t in the right frame of mind to party.
The hitmaker served eight months behind bars at New York’s notorious Rikers Island prison on illegal weapons possession charges – and he admits it took him weeks to accept he was a free man.

As a result, he couldn’t enjoy the celebrations – including a lavish bash in Miami, Florida – planned by his friends and family.

The rap star tells Rolling Stone magazine, “I was out of place, mentally. I didn’t talk too much. I had my hood on the whole night, my shades.

“I played the corner – you wouldn’t have even known it was my party.

“We went to the strip club afterward, but I didn’t really get to enjoy myself. It was too much of a shock.”
