Dear Diary: Lil’ Wayne’s Letter From Jail To His Fans

Despite the fact that Lil’ Wayne is currently behind bars, he is still managing to stay in his fans’ minds and hearts. The New Orleans-born rapper just sent his third letter to his fans since his stay at Rikers began. In it, he thanks his fans for their letters and good wishes, then goes on to individually shout out various fans that that have sent him mail.

His comments to his fans just seem so heartfelt and sincere. It’s undoubtedly comforting for Wayne to know that even while he’s in prison, people on the outside (who probably have never actually laid eyes on him) still care.

Dear Diary: Remy Ma’s Letter From Prison to her fans

Incarcerated rapper Remy Ma recently took the time to write a letter to her fans from prison.

Remy, a former member of the Terror Squad, was sentenced to eight years in prison over one year ago. The rapper was convicted of assualt, weapons possession and attempted coercion after an altercation that left Makeda Barnes Joseph shot.

Here is the letter, according to GlobalGrind.com:

I always find myself thinking about what I was doing a year ago, two years ago, five years ago today. I never remember exactly where till I find myself imagining where I would be today. I rarely listen to the radio because it’s sort of depressing. Not being able to record is stressful not because I’m a rapper but because that was my way of venting and expressing myself. So I write a lot! So much that now I have a callous on my finger from holding a pen. I guess I got used to texting my rhymes!

I get a lot of fan mail and everyone asks me how I’m doing? I say fine, the way I see it I never imagined making it this far with my sanity. Not being able to go somewhere when you want, see your family when you want (on many occasions when you need to), can’t use the phone, take a shower, wear clothes, or even eat when you want – super aggravating. Whenever, which is almost everyday I get visits, a lot of kids ask for autographs. It’s something that I used to do almost everyday but now it actually feels weird, I really feel like an inmate. And as much as I hate to admit it, I really am an inmate. I mean, it kind of grows on you when certain people go out of there way to make you feel like that.

They have this program called YAP (Youth Assistance Program) they keep asking me to join. It’s a program that brings inner city kids to the prison to show them what it’s like to be incarcerated. I hear that every group asks about me but I’m a little hesitant to join. They think it will give the kids a reality check that this can happen to anyone. I however feel that it’ll be more of the kids wanting to see Remy Ma the rapper and because of that they won’t get that I’m actually in jail. So I’m still contemplating. If I figure out a way for them to actually get it, that this is really not a place you would ever want to be whether for 8 years, 8 months, or 8 minutes then I’ll do it.

Everyone in prison isn’t innocent but everyone in prison isn’t guilty. So whether you end up here on purpose or by accident, the pain you’re feeling is still the same.  And I can quote a lot “gangsters” by saying that “I wouldn’t wish this on my worst enemy…”

Forever Innocent,
Rem
