Lil Wayne might be gone until November but that is not stopping him from checking in with his supporters. Friday, the rapper launched WeezyThanxYou.com, a new web site, where he plans to update weekly with random blogs about sports and responses to letters he’s received from fans while in prison.
In Wayne’s first post he writes, “During my prison stint, I want my fans to know I love you. I want all of you to know that I appreciate all the mail I get, and this is my way of saying thank you. The F is for Family, Friends, and Fans.”
The three F’s will no longer have to wonder what the celebrity is doing while in prison. “Real soon, you can catch me blogging for ESPN again thank you [ESPN] for not letting my passion for sports perish,” he blogged. Wayne also posted that he’s been working out to help pass the time and reading the Bible.
Hip Hop bloggers Karen Civil and Karla Moy will be responsible typing up the blogs for the imprisoned rapper. In addition to blogs, WeezyThanxYou.com features a countdown clock and merchandise for sale, including the infamous “Free Weezy” tees.
According to the website, Wayne has 214 days until he’s home.
