Young Money protege Lil Twist recently talked about his relationship with Lil Wayne and how often he keeps in touch with the incarcerated rapper.
Twist said Wayne normally calls just to check up on him.
"I talk to him every chance that we get. Every chance that I get. You know, my phone line is always open for him to call. He calls a lot, and sometimes its just for the blog and stuff. And other times, he calls just to talk about the whole process, and what he's thinking about, and what he's going through. But overall, a lot of times its just to call and check on me." (All Hip Hop)
The rapper has also kept Wayne's online Twitter presence up as he completes a one-year jail sentence.
"That's my brother. He really took me in. Anything he needs me to do, it's done. He told me one day to set him up with Twitter, and I did. He started going hard tweeting every day, Ustreaming every day," Twist said. "Then he went in and he still gives me that call from jail with shout-outs to people, and I'll write it on his Twitter and keep him updated. I look at it like, if I don't do it, my big brother's gonna knock me out." (Los Angeles Times)

"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)
