But are there some advantages of an artist spending time behind bars? Unlike many athletes, entertainers have more than one source of income. So while they will miss out on performance revenues they can tap into other revenue streams to make up for the loss. Rappers T.I., Gucci Mane and Lil Wayne have all constructed effective strategies to stay relevant and satisfy their fan bases to the point that their physical presence was hardly missed. Lil Wayne spent the majority of this year in jail. However he dropped two albums and was recently named one of the Forbes magazine's top "Cash Kings."
But what happens when the positives outweigh the negatives?
Just ask T.I. He's already on his way back.
