Lil Wayne showed his sensitive side this week by reaching out to his fans from behind bars.
He took to his website,WeezyThanxYou.com, to personally thank his fans who have been showing him support while he’s incarcerated.
He wrote: “I hope everyone’s summer has been going well doing whatever it is you like to do. On my end, I’m alive, breathing and blessed. You already know how I’m passing the time – reading and working out. I know I say it every letter, but thank you from the bottom of my heart for the pictures, rocking free weezy tees, and continuous letters. They mean the world. I promise to continue to update as much as I can and answer as many questions as I can from you guys. Shout out to my YM family for making me proud last night. Love and appreciate life. God bless.”
He then went on to thank specific fans, and wrote things like “Stay in School! And keep writing!” and “I am honored to know that my words can inspire you the way they have. I wish you nothing but the best. I thank you with love. You made me feel great.”
Wayne also praised fellow artists Drake and Nicki Minaj, who he said "made me proud" at the BET Awards, with the stars claiming the Best Male Hip-Hop Artist and Best Female Hip-Hop Artist titles, respectively.
This is a side we’ve never seen from Lil Wayne! Maybe this prison time has turned him into a softie!
