Incarcerated rapper Lil Wayne has been enjoying Nacho Cheese Doritos, Kool-Aid and more while completing a one-year jail sentence at Rikers Island, according to a leaked food order document.
Based on the order, Wayne has consumed various popular American snacks.
TMZ has obtained documents of the rapper's commissary food order from last month while serving time at Rikers Island. Among the items on his list are beef sticks, Kool-Aid, Halls cough drops, ramen soup, Nacho Cheese Doritos, 50 sugar packets, and Poland Spring water (no soda). Wayne also requested 20 envelopes and stamps so he can correspond with his family, friends, and fans, who've been writing him non-stop since he checked in in March. (Rap-Up)
Wayne has also been able to keep fans in-tune to everything he is doing via his blog while he awaits his November 4th release from prison.
"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)
He has also placed Young Money's Lil Twist in charge of his online presence.
He calls me," Twist said in an interview. "He lets me know what he wants me to update from time and time. Every time he calls, I update everything he wants. That's my heavy connection to his blog site...That's a hard job. But I am that...Me and Wayne, we're like brothers. He really took me in. He taught me how to do everything, he taught me the music business," Twist added. "We got a strong brother bond." (MTV)
Scheduled to be released as early as November 4th, Wayne was placed behind bars last spring.
Lil Wayne has been sentenced to a year in jail after pleading guilty in a New York City gun case. The Grammy Award-winning rapper was taken away in handcuffs to start serving his term immediately after his sentencing. He'll serve his sentence in city jails, not a state prison. He could be released in about eight months with good behavior. (CBS News)
