(Newser) – Lil Wayne has one month left of his jail sentence, and he'll spend it alone. The rapper was banished to an isolation cell yesterday after being caught with headphones and a charger for an MP3 player in May, the New York Daily News reports. He'll stay in the cell for up to 23 hours a day until his Nov. 4 release, and when he does leave for brief periods, he will not be around other inmates. But hey, at least he can count President Obama as a fan...
