Grammy-winning rapper Lil Wayne has discussed what he wants to do immediately after his Rikers Island jail stay comes to an end later this week, and which celebrity visit meant the most to him.
According to Wayne, he is most concerned with seeing his family members, whom he hasn’t seen since his March incarceration.
“Not sure about the concert yet. And the first five things I will do is kiss Reginae, kiss little Dwayne, kiss Neal, kiss Kameron and kiss my wonderful mother Cita…All artists and friends were very supportive. Thank God I’ve gotten two visits a week since the day I walked in. I’d have to say the visit from Diddy was most surprising because there’s a lot that you’re required to go through and to think he did just to see me is more than cool. But again, everybody has been more than supportive. I never felt alone.” (Billboard)
Wayne also revealed what lessons he has learned from serving time in jail.
“I’ve learned about my strength and inner peace. I’ve shown myself how patient I can be. The most important or positive thing I’ve gotten out of this is the ability to be so humble…I’ve learned a lot from my fans, mostly about my impact on others’ lives. There are many letters that helped me in many ways. And I do plan on reading more fan mail after my release.” (Billboard)
Cash Money Records’ Baby recently talked about how jail has changed Wayne.
Lil Wayne is writing furiously in anticipation of his post-prison return to Hip-Hop, family and the free world. “He hasn’t written out rhymes since the Hot Boys,” Birdman told Rolling Stone in the November edition of the magazine. “There’s a different swagger coming from Wayne, different things to talk about.” (All Hip Hop)
Young Money CEO Mack Maine recently discussed a rumored “Welcome Home Weezy” concert being nixed.
“It’s not gonna be a concert, he’s gonna do a party,” Mack Maine confirmed in an interview. “We wanted to do a concert, but we just decided to do a party. We might do a family party. We just gonna celebrate him coming home and just party-party and work- work. Just wild out and celebrate, fly to Miami, fly to where we live. Of course, he gotta make sure he sees his immediate family, his kids and stuff. Just basically have a good time.” (VIBE)
Lil Wayne is expected to be released from jail on November 4th.
