(Newser) – Lil Wayne is not wasting any time: As soon as he leaves prison Thursday, he’s going to start recording … on the plane flying him home. “We're gonna deal with that microphone, no trip,” says a member of his team, which is currently trying to locate a plane with studio equipment. “You can't keep him out of the studio.” The rapper has been writing lyrics during his entire eight-month prison stint, Rolling Stone reports, and he had even more time to write when he got placed in solitary confinement last month.
