After being caught stashing a charger and headphones for a digital music player in his cell--an understandable offense for a Grammy-winning rapper, but one that still violates the rules--Lil Wayne has been moved into what jail officials call "punitive segregation." In short, that means solitary confinement; Weezy will now be confined to his new cell 23 hours a day and gets just one phone call a week until his November release.
In one last letter from behind bars, Lil Wayne expressed appreciation for the positivity and love from his fans and the support for his music--and promised that he'll be back soon. From weezythanxyou.com:
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.
