Lil Wayne Bids the Internet a Temporary Farewell
Yesterday, Lil Wayne asked his fans to stop sending him the hundreds of pieces of mail he gets per day, since he can no longer write back. (A violation of jail rules back in May landed him in solitary, where he'll remain until his release from Rikers in November.) And now, today, he's posted his final communiqué on his blog, writing "Because of my new limitations, this unfortunately has to be my last letter." Aw, Weezy:
Hello world. Time is ticking and I'm counting every second. Because of my new limitations, this unfortunately has to be my last letter. I don't think people truly understand how much their thoughts and well wishes have helped me through this time in my life. Not everyone is as lucky as I am and it humbles me daily. You would be amazed what positivity can do in a negative environment. I'm going to miss reading about your lives. I'm going to miss looking at the pictures. They were the highlight of my days aside from speaking with my kids. Don't stress over this in 27 days, the ride starts again.
Thank you from the bottom of my heart to everyone who is supporting I Am Not A Human Being. It amazes me each time people go out and support my music. I'll always be in debt to you for that. Keep rocking your "Free Weezy" tees and rocking out to my music. Trust me when I say this is almost over. I love you. I'll continue to pray for all of you. Just keep doing the same for me.
And so rap's grimmest countdown enters its final month. Which Wayne will emerge from prison? As a friend recently put it, the rapper's newest release, I Am Not A Human Being, is more of a "clearinghouse than an indication of what's to come." We don't know what's next, really. Neither, probably, does he. He'll have 27 more days to think on it though.
