Lil Wayne Writes From Solitary Confinement
With less than a month left of his eight month prison sentence Lil Wayne is reaching out to his fans penning his ninth letter thanking them for their support, and dropping updates on his current status.
In his latest correspondence Weezy responds to being in solitary confinement for the remainder of his sentence, his punishment for breaking prison rules by listening to music on his MP3 player, a move which he acknowledges was the wrong decision. "By now I'm guessing that you all have heard about my recent relocation to the bing, which is punitive segregation," he wrote. "Basically, no T.V., no radio, no snacks/junkfood, and one phone call a week. This punishment has been handed to me for my earlier MP3 incident. I admit, I f---ed up and now I must deal with the consequences."
He continued, "As I write this, I only have 25 days left, and it'll be even less than that when you read this. So honestly, I'm fine. Obviously, this gives me a lot of time to myself and a lot of alone time with my thoughts, which can be creatively dangerous. I do miss being able to hear from my family everyday but once a week will have to suffice. To them, I apologize. I'm still able to receive mail so reading and responding is still a huge part of my day. I'd like to thank everyone that sent me B-Day cards and wishes -- that was terrific. You all are wonderful, simply wonderful."
Weezy goes on to express his gratitude to fans for downloading his latest album 'I Am Not a Human Being,' which debuted at No. 2 on the Billboard Digital Singles Charts. Ever the promoter the 28-year-old even announced that he will be shooting videos for the album upon his release, as well as dropping a bonus song to his 'Nino Brown 2' DVD. The father of four, has been locked away since March stemming from a 2007 weapons possessions charge. He is scheduled to be released from New York's Rikers Island November 4.
