Incarcerated rapper Lil Wayne has released a new letter from Rikers Island updating fans on his current condition and how impressed he has been by Drake and Nicki Minaj.
In his letter, Wayne also breaks down his daily routine.
"So 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. Amazing would be too typical and perfect would be unfair. I listen to the radio sometimes, emphasis on sometimes, and I hear the new music. I like some. I applaud my Young Money family for what they're doing. As I'm not surprised. This is what we're supposed to do. Congrats to Drake and Nicki for all their recent success. Those 2 are going to have me retiring early. I love my team. Much love to Tez and Mack. I know that people are inquisitive of what I do all day, so here goes. I wake up around 11AM. 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." (Weezy Thanx You)
Young Money's Nicki Minaj recently envisioned what is going to happen when her boss is freed.
"I speak to Wayne, he's in great spirits," Minaj said in an interview. "He's hilarious, always making me laugh whenever I talk to him. He's his same self it seems to me -- just even more business-minded. I speak to him often. I know when he comes out, it's gonna be a problem, 'cause he's one of those people that needs to get out his thoughts. So I would imagine he would probably be in the studio for 60 days straight. He'll probably do three albums the day he comes home." (MTV)
Drake recently shared his views on the impact of Wayne's tine away from the group.
"His approach with his artists is very trusting, very fearless, and because of that, we have been put out into the world like trying to make people love us for who we are on our own, without Wayne," Drake explained in an interview. "So with Wayne gone, its possible for me and her (Nicki Minaj) to still thrive. I think that's the best approach and I respect Wayne so much, because he urged us to be ourselves maybe in anticipation for the day that he's not here. So we can still be ourselves without him. I don't need Wayne to be Drake. I'm a better Drake when Wayne is here, but I don't need Wayne to be Drake. Nicki doesn't need Wayne to be Nicki. She created Nicki [Minaj]. We're all a better team when he's here, but it's not a necessity. For us, it's a great thing so we can still carry this movement." (All Hip Hop)
According to Wayne's co-manager and Young Money CEO Cortez Bryant, a new EP called I'm Not A Human Being will hit stores in late September.
"I'm putting out a [Wayne] album called I'm Not A Human Being and I'll probably drop it on his birthday, September 27...We not about to roll out no three month set up. I'm not even putting it out in stores. We just gonna put it out virally and maybe package it up for Christmas. Give 'em a hard copy later for fan appreciation." (VIBE)
