The newest letter from Lil Wayne, now 4 months in at Rikers:
Hello worldâ€¦ Iâ€™m good. Counting the days and still smiling. Most of those smiles come from hearing my kidsâ€™ voices over the phone. The others come from reading fan mail. Let me just say that I have the best fans in the world! The devotion, dedication, support, love, and most of all, prayers are simply the best. I never imagined that I could have such an impact on peopleâ€™s lives. Because of this, I vow to be a bit more careful of what I say. So Iâ€™ve been writing and let me be the first to tell you that the lyrics that Iâ€™m writing areâ€¦ well thereâ€™s no word that I can think of that properly defines them. Amazing would be too typical and perfect would be unfair. I listen to the radio sometimes, emphasis on sometimes, and I hear the new music. I like some. I applaud my Young Money family for what theyâ€™re doing. As Iâ€™m not surprised. This is what weâ€™re supposed to do. Congrats to Drake and Nicki for all their recent success. Those 2 are going to have me retiring early. I love my team. Much love to Tez and Mack. I know that people are inquisitive of what I do all day, so here goes. I wake up around 11AM. Have some coffee. Call my kids, and my wonderful mother. I then shower up. Read fan mail. Have lunch. Back on the phone. Read a book or write some thoughts down. Have dinner. Phone. Pushups. Then I listen to ESPN on the radio. Read the bible, then sleep. Thatâ€™s my day. Iâ€™ll end this letter, but never my love. Iâ€™m gone. Oh, and how â€˜bout dem Lakers!?! P.S. I thank my fans for appreciating me the way you do. Tunechi. His fan thank you’s are after the jump. Or, you could simply read the blog entry at the WeezyThanxYou website.
