Lil Wayne Pens Open Letter to Fans From Prison
The world is a little more boring with Lil Wayne locked up at Rikers, but it looks like we’ll start hearing a lot more from him in the coming weeks. In a letter addressed to fans, Weezy has revealed that he’s doing just fine. He’s been focusing on working out, reading the bible and following the sports world closely. On that front, he said that we’ll be able to catch him blogging for ESPN from the pen very soon.
“Love. Live. Life. Proceed. Progress,” wrote Wayne in the letter. “That’s who I am and who I’ll always be. 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 the 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 my spirit, however, know no boundaries.”
Nicely put, Wayne. He also puts focus on the two most important parts of his life: family and fans. He thinks about his kids and hopes that unwavering love will get them through his incarceration. As for the fans, Weezy’s thankful that they went out and supported ‘Rebirth’ and his team just created a new website — WeezyThanxYou.com — where he’ll post weekly letters and answer questions.
“This isn’t all about me, you are the reason for this letter,” he continued. “It’s because of you ‘Rebirth’ went gold when critics aborted it. It’s because of you Young Money is and will always be a movement. If the weight of the world is on your shoulders, I beg of you, place it on mine. That’s the least I could do for you, after all you have sacrificed for me. If I could, I would write each one of you back.”
