Rapper Lil Wayne is on "suicide watch" in prison - he's has been asked to keep an eye on desperate fellow inmates, according to his ex-girlfriend. The 27-year-old rapper, real name Dwayne Carter Jr., began his year-long stint for gun possession in maximum-security New York prison Rikers Island in March, and he has been given a big responsibility behind bars.

Antonia 'Toya' Johnson, the mother of Wayne's 11-year-old daughter, tells Us Magazine, "Wayne has a job. They got him on suicide watch for other prisoners. He watches the crazy prisoners and makes sure they don't kill themselves. He likes the job, even though they don't pay him much."

She insists her ex is "doing OK" and "getting along with everybody".

Weezy is absolutely amazing. All his songs really have a great purpose, and he loves doing what he does in the music business. I think all these rappers should take into consideration all he's been through, and the things he has accomplished. Maybe then they won't judge him as quickly. He may be in jail right now, but all his real and true fans know that he'll be 20,000,000 more amazing then when he put in jail. We all miss and love you Weezy!!!(:
