Dear Diary: Lil Wayne “The End of a Long Journey”

Lil Wayne has done it again, and it’s said to be his last letter for his fans. He actually posted it 3 days ago, prior to his release yesterday morning. It was very thoughtful and nice of him to keep us all posted and show us that he appreciates us as his fans.

Check out what he wrote after the jump….

Hello world! My world! Our world!

As I greet you all in my last days on this island, I must reflect. I think back to when I first arrived and I had no clue of what I’d be experiencing. I was never scared, worried, nor bothered by the situation. For that, I thank God, my family, and you, my amazing fans. I prayed for you all every night, as I’m aware that I was in your prayers as well. The very first day that I received mail, it was about 300 pieces or more! I smiled like a child of Christmas. But when I began to read them, my heart smiled. I laughed with some of you, reasoned with some of you, and even cried with some of you. I responded to as many of you that time would allow. I plan to keep reading and responding after my release. I thank you all for being so very supportive, as I never imagined how much impact my words and life can have. With this knowledge, I vow to continue to be me! For you have assured time that I don’t have to change for no one but God. I will be the same Martian I was when I left, just better. You fans are more than amazing, and I will for to the end of the world for your love. This isn’t the last of weezythanxyou.com I will continue to thank you when I’m home.

I simple LOVE you all.

P.S. Thanx for supporting my YM team the way you do!!

Now I like to thank my wonderful family and friends for never letting me down. Your love and support is worth the world. I am grateful for you all and I couldn’t have done it without your love. Also, I thank everyone who came to visit me. That shit meant a lot, straight up! I would do the same, if not more for you.

Now I must dedicated something to the woman in the picture…

…sitting on this bed with my back against one of the four walls I’ve been confined to, all I can think of is you. Staring at you staring at me, from the picture of you that I see. I try so hard to make the picture smile. You look so serious. Seriously beautiful. You, me, we are one. Then I look further to the right and there’s a picture of “the bed by the water”… where I dream to be with the woman in the picture that still won’t smile. I sometimes talk to the picture, but it never responds. Although, I’ve been told that a picture speaks a thousands words, I only wish that this picture would speak of four… “I love you too.” That would be the perfect response to what I frequently say to it. You see, the picture of “the bed by the water” has sand in it, and the woman in the other picture has sand in her hair… put them together, and she’s there. And when I dream, I’m there with her. Shhh… quietly these four walls become that place in the picture. And the woman in the picture begins to whisper… “I love you too”… she responds!

And now she smiles. Imagination is perfect.

Dedicated to the woman in the picture.

Gone!

Just In: Lil Wayne Free At Last!

“Free Weezy” t-shirts, No Longer Needed. Lil Wayne has been officially been released from Rikers Island today (November 4th), after serving eight months behind bars following a a gun possession charge in July of 2007.

And what a long, eventful eight months it has been for Wayne as well as us, his fans. Around 8:35AM, representatives confirmed that Lil Wayne was officially released earlier this morning.

Perhaps one of the most eyebrow-raising aspects of Wayne’s jail stint was the fact that he managed to shoot nine music videos in a 48-hour period before heading off to the clink. And once they began to surface, it became apparent that, at times, quality control was of little concern.

The rapper headed to jail on March 8 to begin serving a year-long sentence. But his stay was shortened due to good behavior (hence his early release today).

That’s not to say Weezy didn’t run into a little bit of trouble while he was locked up—he was busted in May for being found with a MP3 player and charger in his possession. Eventually he was punished with a month in “solitary confinement” for the infraction.

In late September Wayne’s ‘I Am Not A Human Being’ album was released digitally. Once the physical CD version hit shelves in October (I made sure to get my copy), the album climbed to #1 on Billboard’s Top 200 chart. And it’s still in the Top 10, this week sitting at #4.

Often he would post letters to his fans via the website WeezyThanxYou.com. Two days ago, in his final entry, Wayne wrote, “As I greet you all in my last days on this island, I must reflect. I think back to when I first arrived and I had no clue of what I’d be experiencing. I was never scared, worried, nor bothered by the situation. For that, I thank God, my family, and you, my amazing fans.”

And now, with Lil Wayne a free man once again, it’s time to celebrate his freedom, but according to Young Money Records‘ president Mack Maine, and MTV News, Wayne is said to be heading to Miami for a celebration that will take place on Sunday at a strip club.

“Well deserved!!”

Below is a photo that is said to be taken this morning of Wayne leaving NYC’s Rikers Island….

“Welcome back to the music world. You’ve been truly missed.”
