Lil Wayne Speaks on Routine Behind Bars


As has become ritual since he went to jail in early March, Lil Wayne again recently wrote a letter to his fans from the inside. In it, he details his daily routine and then sheds light on new material he has been working on.

Weezy describes a comfortable life behind bars. “I wake up around 11AM,” he explains in the letter. ”Have some coffee. Call my kids, and my wonderful mother. I then shower up. Read fan mail. Have lunch. Back on the phone. Read a book or write some thoughts down. Have dinner. Phone. Pushups. Then I listen to ESPN on the radio. Read the bible, then sleep. That’s my day.”

He also shared that he’s working on his craft in his free time. “I’ve been writing and let me be the first to tell you that the lyrics that I’m writing are… well there’s no word that I can think of that properly defines them.” he said. “Amazing would be too typical and perfect would be unfair.”

In addition Wayne thanked a laundry list of fans, personalizing each thank you, much like he did in his previous letter.

Weezy, who is serving time for a 2007 gun possession charge, is scheduled to be released on November 4, but may free as early as October. He began his sentence on March 8. —Adam Fleischer

      You get coffee in general pop. That’s pretty standard. Guess you never been, huh?

      • Jerod

        Nope. You think you’re cooler than me?

  • Sha

    I hope he has fire. But to be honest? Doing time in the clink doesn’t always help an emcee. Matter of fact…. I think it only helped Tupac and Biggie. Every other recent nigga came out WAY WAY weaker than they went in. Jail does some shit to you I guess. We’ll see. My prayers and best wishes Weezy.

  • ri067953

    This guy makes serving jail time sound like a comfortable experience. Once again, he is misleading the youth who listen to his music and write him fanmail.

  • DJ Postman

    And this is punishing him how?…..

  • Christopher Walken

    You guys are on some bullshit why do you want him to suffer? fan or not a black man was charged with possession of gun that was registered in someone elses name (albeit in another state, but that’s not the point) strictly for being a successful black man. Now think of all the bullshit that happens to just regular people smh
