  • Former Gambit writer and full-time Lil Wayne aficionado Alison Fensterstock is no doubt camping out at the newsstand now.

New Orleans' best-known zillion-selling rapper (and recent guest of the Rikers Island Hotel) is the cover subject of the new issue of Rolling Stone, and the magazine has posted a preview of the article online. The trash-talking of Lebron James and Dwyane Wade will no doubt get most of the attention, but it also provides some insight as to what Lil Wayne was reading behind bars:

In prison he read biographies of Jimi Hendrix, Jim Morrison, Marvin Gaye, Joan Jett, Vince Lombardi and Anthony Kiedis. "[Kiedis'] Scar Tissue was really good," he says. "I also read the Bible 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."
