Lil Wayne's fan mail ban
Lil Wayne has asked fans to stop sending him mail in prison.
The 'I'm Single' rapper has recently been moved to solitary confinement in New York's Rikers Island prison after he was caught with a banned MP3 player and headphones in his cell, and has called for fans to stop contacting him, because he will not be able to write back.
A message posted on Wayne's twitter page, on his behalf, read: "I can no longer write my fans, as difficult as this maybe to say please stop sending me mail, I luv u and will see you soon. (sic)"
28-year-old Wayne - who was jailed in March on weapons charges, after a gun was found on his tour bus - has previously said he gets over 100 pieces of fan mail a day in prison, and in his infrequent blog posts has written personal lines in reply to specific letters he's received. He estimates in total that he has had over one million letters of support from fans around the world.
He has also previously said how well wishes from fans keep him going, telling MTV: "When I read those letters, that fan mail, and see what they say about what my music does for them, and how it helped them through situations; to read that, that makes me take my words and my whole outlook on what I'm doing a lot more seriously."
Wayne is scheduled for release on November 4.Posted on 7 Oct 2010 09:45 to category : Band / Celebrity News
