Lil Wayne's prison sentence got me thinking- what luxuries will he able to enjoy in prison as a star or wealthy person? If not him specifically what luxuries can be given to a prisoner with enough wealth and influence? How is this legal?

I am also thinking specifically of a couple of scenes in The Wire and other TV shows and movies where a "kingpin" has a jail cell with nice sheets, a nice radio (or even a TV), a cell phone, and a selection of candy, cigarettes, and other luxuries. Would a situation like this occur in real life? How?
