Lil Wayne Reaches Out To Fans From Solitary

Filed under: Music MinuteLil Wayne

lil wayne releases another statement from solitary confinement

Last week, Lil Wayne had sent out what he thought would be his final letter from prison, but it looks like he's been able to communicate with the outside world again!

Weezy sent a statement out to fans through his website, where he wrote the following about his time in solitary confinement at Riker's:

"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. As I write this, I only have 25 days left [20 days at press time], and it'll be even less than that when you read this. So honestly, I'm fine. Obviously, [solitary] gives me a lot of time to myself and a lot of alone time with my thoughts, which can be creatively dangerous."

We're not sure exactly what you mean by "creatively dangerous," but we'll be curious to see how that manifests itself into music when you get out!

Stay positive, Weezy. You've got a lot on the horizon, including the fact that the CD release of I Am Not A Human Being is projected to top the Billboard 200 next week.

You're almost out of there, bb!

What do U think about Weezy's new music? Do U think it deserves to hit the top spot on the Billboard 200?

Lil Wayne Release Final Statement From Prison

lil wayne releases final statement from prison

Lil Wayne's had a rough ride at Riker's, but he's kept an impressively positive attitude!

Here's a final letter that Weezy has released to his fans from prison:

“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.” -WEEZY

Surprisingly inspiring and heartfelt stuff, Weezy!

We wish U the best of luck with your final weeks at Riker's, bb!

Double Dosage of Lil Wayne…From Jail

Filed under: TV NewsMTVMusic MinuteLil WayneDrakeSnooki

MTV's debut episode of The Seven gave us two helpings of Weezy…and we've got both of them for you here!

Check out the videos (above) to see Lil Wayne's guest phone appearances on the show…from jail.

In the first interview, Weezy talks about the massive quantities of fan mail that he receives on a daily basis. He claims he's been sent more then 1,000,000 pieces of fan mail since he started his sentence at Riker's Island.

During his second sort of appearance on the show, he surprised the show's not-imprisoned-guest Drake, and made fun of him for receiving some taped love from Snooki! Nice to see Weezy with a sense of humor, even while in prison.

We haven't been head-over-heels in love with Weezy's new stuff thus far, but who knows? Maybe he'll step up his game when he's no longer an inmate!

What do U think of Lil Wayne's phone appearances on MTV's The Seven?

Filed under: Music MinuteLil Wayne

He'll be out in about a month and half, and he plans on coming back strong!

In preparation for his return from Riker's Island, Lil Wayne has made all types of announcements to get fans excited.

Here are a couple of highlights to look forward to with Weezy's release:

-The Full length I Am Not A Human album released on September 27

-Tha Carter IV mixtape, which will precede an upcoming full Carter IV album

Both pieces of news should have Lil Wayne fans tempted to send Weezy a cake with a file in it, in an attempt to get him out early, but stay cool! He'll be out very soon.

Are U excited for post-Riker's Lil Wayne mania to begin?

Lil Wayne To Release New Album Same Day Prison Releases Him

Filed under: Music MinuteLil Wayne

If Lil Wayne misbehaves in prison and his release is delayed, will his album release ALSO be delayed?

We’ll give him the benefit of the doubt that he will in fact be released from prison on November 5, which is the same day that Tha Carter IV is tentatively slated to be released.

Here’s what Mack, the president of Lil Wayne’s Young Money Crew had to say about the new album:

"Tha Carter IV plans we had and still have are to put Tha Carter IV out the day he comes out [of prison]. He had so many songs for Tha Carter IV, we said let's just put these 10 songs out [on I Am Not a Human Being] and double-back for Tha Carter IV. He has more songs for Tha Carter IV that are still strong."

According to Mack, Lil Wayne has been hard at work on the song selection for the new album, despite the fact that he’s been serving a 1 year sentence on Rikers Island.

Will U pick up Lil Wayne’s new album when he gets out of prison?
