Lil Wayne checks in from prison -- via his new blog

The first thing we thought when we read Lil Wayne‘s blog from prison was that someone had to be editing his stuff, because -- nothing against the guy -- the mechanics of the writing are a serious departure from his Twitter feed.

Sure enough, according to Spin magazine, the rapper doesn’t have Internet access while he’s incarcerated, but members of Team Weezy are inputting his handwritten letters and posting them at the blog Weezy Thanx You. He says he’s in good spirits, working out a lot, reading the Bible and thinking of his kids.


It’s Lil Wayne’s way of keeping in touch with fans who are apparently sending him tons of mail while he’s locked up for a year after pleading guilty to a weapons charge. He went in on March 8 after several delays.

‘If I could, I’d write each one of you back,’ he said on the blog Friday. ‘Because of this, my team and I have created a website where you can view my letters. Each week I’ll answer as many questions as I possibly can.’

Also, according to the first post from the man also known as Dwayne Carter Jr., he’ll be blogging again soon for ESPN.

Meanwhile, as the rapper does his time, a judge in Arizona has issued a bench warrant for his arrest, for failure to appear in a Yuma court on charges related to possession of drugs and a loaded weapon.
