Lil Wayne blogging behind bars
Lil Wayne has been writing to his fans from prison, as members of his team are posting his handwritten letters on his blog.
The 27-year-old rapper was sentenced to a year in prison last month after pleading guilty to attempted criminal possession of a weapon, but is expected to be released after eight months if he serves with good behaviour.
Lil Wayne wrote at weezythanxyou.com: "During my prison stint, I want my fans to know I love you... for real, this will be the best way we can communicate for the coming months."
He went on: "I want all of you to know that I appreciate all the mail I get, and this is my way of saying thank you. The F is for Family, Friends, and Fans.
"I'm in good spirits man, for real. My kids race through my mind all day.
"I work out a lot because it helps pass the time. I read the Bible everyday. Jail didn't make me find God, He's always been there. They can lock me up, but my spirit and my love can never be confined to prison walls."
