Since [artist id=”510062″]Lil Wayne[/artist] went to jail earlier this year, his fans have been curious about how the star is holding up. Artists who have kept in touch with Weezy — like Tyga , Nicki Minaj and Fat Joe — have given updates about the star’s bid, and roughly midway through his sentence, Wayne has written another letter to his fans, opening up about his time in Rikers.
In the letter, posted Tuesday (July 13) on his website, WeezyThanxYou.com, Wayne said he’s “counting the days and still smiling” and gives up details about his daily routine. “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. That’s my day,” Weezy wrote. The routine reflects a level of normalcy that experts predicted the star would experience in jail.
The superstar MC also opened up about the new lyrics he’s been penning in the pen, writing, “There’s no word that I can think of that properly defines them. Amazing would be too typical and perfect would be unfair.”
In addition, Weezy said the outpouring of support he’s received while in lockup has prompted him to pay closer attention to his words. “I never imagined that I could have such an impact on people’s lives. Because of this, I vow to be a bit more careful of what I say,” Wayne wrote.
Wayne also revealed that he’s keeping up with the pace of music, writing, “I listen to the radio sometimes, emphasis on sometimes, and I hear the new music. I like some.” He might not be into all the latest radio hits, but Weezy did show love to his Young Money artists. “I applaud my Young Money family for what they’re doing. As I’m not surprised. This is what we’re supposed to do. Congrats to Drake and Nicki for all their recent success. Those 2 are going to have me retiring early.”
The megastar rapper closed the letter by sending detailed messages to dozens of individual fans. The star wrote to one fan (who’s presumably a fan of both Miley Cyrus and Weezy), “Me and Miley? Different, but cool. Enjoy Utah,” and to another, “Thanx for supporting me in the U.K.. Say hi to Lexie for me.” To those he wasn’t able to shout out by name, the artist ended the letter with a simple message: “I thank my fans for appreciating me the way you do.”
