(Newser) – Lil Wayne gives his first post-prison interview to Rolling Stone, which offers a hilarious preview of the piece. The best quotes:

  • On his favorite prison activity, Uno: "I'd bust a n***a's ass at Uno. We gamble for phone time. I'd take n***a's commissary: Lemme get them cookies, lemme get them chips, get that soup.” But he got so good, his fellow prisoners stopped inviting him. "They'd be like, 'Oh, we thought you were asleep.’ Like you can't look inside my cell and see that I'm right there! We ain't got no doors!"
  • On the Bible, which he read for the first time: “It was deep! I liked the parts where some character was once this, but he ended up being that. Like he'd be dissing Jesus, and then he ends up being a saint. That was cool."

  • On Lebron James and Dwayne Wade, who didn’t talk to him at a recent Miami Heat game: "Them n***as never speak to a n***a. They don't chuck me the deuce or nothing. N***a spent all that money on them f***ing tickets ... Come holla at me. We sit right by them little bitch-ass n***as.”
  • On solitary confinement, where he spent his last month: “Solitary was the worst. No TV. No radio. No commissary. Basically you're in there 23 hours a day,” but at least there was a window where he watched cars drive by: "I used to sit at that motherf***er all day.”
