Lil Wayne's letter from solitary confinement
In a surprising development, Lil Wayne has just posted a letter to his fans written from solitary confinement.
Just last week, Weezy told fans that he was going to be on silence mode for the next several weeks while serving out a sentence to punitive segregation for being caught with a contraband MP3 player at Rikers prison, where he will reside for the next four weeks.
Lil Wayne thanks his fans for downloading I Am Not A Human being and offers this bit of wisdom as to his current mindset:
"Talent is best nurtured in solitude... Be home soon!"
By now I'm guessing that you all have heard about my recent relocation to the bing, which is punitive segregation. 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 fu#ked up and now I must deal with the consequences. 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.
Well anyways, I just wanted you all to know that I'm good and I'll be good! But at the end of the day, I did it all for music!!! By the way, thanx for downloading the I Am Not A Human Being album. And if you haven't done so already, please do! And if you have, do so again! When I get out I'm going to put the album in stores and shoot more videos for it. Which songs should I shoot videos to? Also, we will be adding bonus songs and packaging the new Nino Brown DVD with the in store album! You're welcome.
Talent is best nurtured in solitude... Be home soon!
...Dreaming of being in Greece.
