Lil Wayne is expected to be released from prison in November, it's been reported.

The rapper was jailed for 12 months in March after he pleaded guilty to attempted gun possession.

But prison records obtained by MTV News suggest that the rapper's projected release date in November 4 – four months early.

As previously reported on Gigwise, Lil Wayne revealed in a blog post this week that he has been writing new songs from his prison cell.

The rapper also gave fans an insight as to what his daily routine was like in jail.

Music Mugshots
  • Scott Stapp – Amazingly the Creed singer wasn't arrested for crimes against music. Nope, the above photos comes from when he was arrested for reckless driving back in 2002.

  • Jay-Z – Looking absolutely devastated, this 1999 mugshot stems from the rap mogul's arrest in connection with allegedly stabbing a record executive. He later pleaded guilty to a lesser charge and was sentenced to three years probation.

  • Phil Spector – Taken shortly after he was sentenced to 19 years behind bars for second-degree murder, sans one of his infamous wigs he looks like Mr Burns from The Simpsons.

  • Phil Spector - Here's an earlier mugshot of the shamed producer taken last month. He's now prohibited from wearing a wig in prison in case he smuggles drugs or other contraband in under his headpiece.

  • George Clinton – The funk pioneer looks wild on a good day, but when he was arrested for alleged cocaine possession in 2003 he looked even wilder.

  • David Crosby – The legendary artist was arrested in Dallas in 1982 on drugs and weapons charges. He eventually served 11 months of a five-year sentence behind bars. Despite his crimes, he looks quite proud of himself here.

  • Lil Wayne – The acclaimed rapper was arrested along with two others in January 2008 when police found 105 grams of marijuana, 29 grams of cocaine, 41 grams of MDMA and $22,000 in cash on their tour bus. He pleased not guilty to the charges in May of that year.

  • Scott Weiland – The ex-Velvet Revolver singer upon his arrest for drink driving in May 2008. He was handed a probation, fined $2,000 and ordered to check into rehab for his crimes.

  • DMX – He's been arrested so many times that there are a multitude of mugshots to choose from. This one is from May 2008 when DMX (real name Earl Simmons) was charged with animal cruelty amongst other things. Lovely bloke.

  • Hank Williams Jr – The country singer looked frazzled when he was charged for allegedly verbally and physically attacking a 19-year-old waitress. He was later released.

  • Glen Campbell – Easily the messiest mugshot of them all, this is the country star's ugly mug when he was arrested for DUI in 2003.

  • Jerry Lee Lewis – The man who married his 13-year-old cousin was arrested for drunken disorderly and gun possession in 1976 in relation to an incident in Graceland where he flung a weapon around at security asking to see Elvis. Loser.
