Lil Wayne Sends His Love From Jail
The search for the best new website of the day is over: Weezy Thanx You includes a countdown ticker to help you keep track of when Lil Wayne will be released from jail (only 215 days, 9 hours and 38 minutes to go!), as well as his prison mailing address and a personal thank-you note from Weezy. (Oh, and don’t forget to pick up a Free Weezy t-shirt.) Read the incarcerated rapper’s heartfelt message to his fans, friends and family below.
“During my prison stint, I want my fans to know I love you,” begins Wayne, blogging from Rikers Island. “I want all of you to know that I appreciate all the mail I get, and this is my way of saying thank you.” He goes on to announce his plans to blog for ESPN while in jail, and individually responds to a few of his fans who have already sent him letters (“Nurris Terrero…Your letter was so thoughtful and sincere. The way you worded everything left me in awe. Please send suggestions on books I should read. I look forward to checking them out.”). But the most heart-wrenching part comes when Wayne mentions missing his children:
You see, we’re all living on borrowed time, so I’m not worried about this situation. Life happens quick. The more time you spend contemplating what you should have done…you lose valuable time planning what you can and will do. Trying to tear down the past prohibits you from building up your future. So for my time here, my physical will be confined to the yard. My love and my spirit, however, know no boundaries.
I’m in good spirits man, for real. My kids race through my mind all day. They know they were created with love, so love is how their life will be defined. I just hope my love and adoration for them provides a temporary bandage on a wound I unknowingly inflicted on them.
As with his poetic tweets, Wayne writes with more depth than one might expect (although he certainly has the time to make as many revisions to his thank-you notes as he wants). Go check out weezythanxyou.com and write the man a letter of support—he needs all the distractions he can get from the jail “activity” that T.I. foreshadowed.
