Lil Wayne is writing in jail. That’s what the hip-hop star who’s serving time in New York’s Rikers Island prison said yesterday of his new material in his newest letter to fans. In addition to touching on his music, Wayne also took some time out to answer a question he’s often asked. What does he do all day?“Amazing” and “perfect” don’t do justice describing the lyrics
“I wake up around 11AM,” he starts in his note. “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. Push-ups. Then I listen to ESPN on the radio. Read the Bible, then sleep. That’s my day.” He has roughly 100 more days of that regime. He’s expected to be released this November.
In other Weezy-related news, his manager Cortez Bryant recently told Vibe Magazine that he plans on releasing I’m Not A Human Being, an EP and prelude to Wayne’s Tha Carter IV, in September.
“I’ll probably drop it on his birthday, September 27,” said Bryant. It won’t be released for commercial purposes, though. At least not initially, he said. “We’re not about to roll out no three month set up. I’m not even putting it out in stores. We’re just gonna put it out virally and maybe package it up for Christmas. Give ’em a hard copy later for fan appreciation.” The EP likely will feature songs Wayne recorded before he was imprisoned in March.
