Top Ten musical jailbirds: In honor of Lil Wayne and T.I. and their respective prison stints

Earlier this morning, Lil Wayne was released from New York's Rikers Island after serving eight months of a one-year sentence for criminal possession of a weapon.

Fellow Southern rapper T.I., meanwhile, went back to jail on Monday after a federal judge in Atlanta revoked his probation following an arrest in Los Angeles last month for possession of Ecstasy and marijuana (his original case also involves weapons charges).

To commemorate Weezy F Baby's release from the big house and T.I.'s return, we've compiled a list of Top Ten musical jailbirds. Click through to see who made the cut.
