MTV News has learned that rapper Lil Wayne’s one-year sentence has been cut down by several months. The rapper is now expected to be released from Rikers Island in November, four months early.

News of this new release date was revealed in prison documents attained by MTV.

Lil Wayne has been serving time at Rikers Island since March 8, 2010 and an early release date for the rapper is reliant upon him not receiving any violations or infractions.

Earlier this week a letter from Lil Wayne, addressed to his fans, was posted on his Website

“Let me just say that I have the best fans in the world! The devotion, dedication, support, love, and most of all, prayers are simply the best,” said Lil Wayne in his letter. “I never imagined that I could have such an impact on people’s lives. Because of this, I vow to be a bit more careful of what I say.”

A rep for the rapper has yet to confirm MTV’s report of Lil Wayne’s early release.
