Not content with being the hottest rapper on the planet, Lil' Wayne has taken on a side gig, as a blogger for ESPN. In this week's edition, his second post, Wayne lets everyone know this isn't a lark. "I got ESPN tattooed on my arm. I've had it for at least three months now, so that should show you how seriously I'm gonna take this," he writes.

Wayne also shares some of his sports connections, revealing he got messages from Cincinnati Bengals wide receiver Chad Ocho Cinco and New Orleans Hornets point guard Chris Paul. Wayne learned first hand what it means to have the proverbial power of the pen, now keyboard, as he took some flack from Paul. "My man Chris Paul called mad 'cause I didn't say nothing about him. He was kinda upset."

Now, what does Wayne have on his mind this edition? Among his insights are that Brett Farve "Must have God's phone number cause he is superhuman...There's a reason he's my favorite player of all time," and he sees the Dodgers knocking the Cubs out of the NL playoffs, with new American Idol Manny Ramirez, the best hitter in the National League, and the Tampa Bay Devil Rays going to the World Series.

And for those that want to keep up with Wayne's other gig, that music thing that sold over a million copies first week out this year, he wraps up the blog with an update on what's coming next for him. He's working on a mixed tape called 'Dedication 3,' which will be out soon. Then it'll be up on his website with 20 extra tracks for free.

But if that that music thing doesn't end up working out, Wayne now has something to fall back on. And we're already looking forward to reading his NBA predictions. Something tells us to expect some love for Chris Paul and the Hornets.
