Although [lastfm]Lil Wayne[/lastfm] just celebrated his 28th birthday with a digital gift to his fans and President Barack Obama declared Weezy as one of his favorite musical artists, Lil Wayne is–yes, despite conspiracy theories–still in jail on Rikers Island.
In prison since March on firearm charges, Lil Wayne has still been able to work on his new album, tweet, and write a letter to his fans on how much he hates prison.
[pullquote quote=”Anyway, so back to my fans, you are the best in the world. When reading those letters, you never cease to amaze me with your love. I am forever grateful. ” credit=”Lil’ Wayne”]
Weezy starts the letter like he is writing his high school girlfriend. It’s sort of adorable.
What’z poppin! I hope that you all are well and as always, thank you thank you thank you for the endless love and support. I think by the time you all read this I’ll be 28 years old… feeling ancient in this b#tch! On that note, I do encourage you young people to enjoy your youth. And for the old heads like me, enjoy your life. Everyday! As for me, I’m good. Awaiting freedom patiently. People often ask does the days feel longer now that the time is getting shorter… I say that there’s 24 hours in everyday. But honestly, I can’t f*ckin’ wait! Sorry. Anyway, I’m still playing UNO. Still doing pushups and such, by the way, please don’t expect me to come out looking any different. I’m the same little ‘ol me. Also, I’ve been trying to get as much rest as I can because I know I won’t when I’m out of here. Wait, Aaliyah‘s “Let Me Know” just came on the radio! “At your best, you are love”… and I try to always be at my best, for you.
Dr. Carter then describes for his fans what he’s been doing (and listening to) this whole time. Wait, we thought he was making a record and doing push-ups?
I only listen to slow jams and ESPN. Shoutout to Keith Stewart and Dr. Bob Lee on WBLS, and Lenny Green on KISSfm. That’s all I listen to, other than sports. Oh and if you haven’t heard the new song by Eric Benet, “Sometimes I Cry”, please stop what you’re doing and check it out. Well, after you finish reading this. It’s the best song I’ve heard since Maxwell‘s “Woman’s Worth”. It’s for grown folk. I actually listen to the radio all day waiting for that song. Anyway, so back to my fans, you are the best in the world. When reading those letters, you never cease to amaze me with your love. I am forever grateful.
Here’s the Eric Benet song/grown folk music that Lil Wayne is encouraging you to check out:
