Lil Wayne Writes Mother's Day Blog Post 'You are the role models, not me,' the MC writes from prison in post previewed online Tuesday.
A preview of Lil Wayne's third blog posting since he began his prison term appeared online Tuesday (May 4) and, in it, the Young Money boss honors the mothers of the world.
Timed to coincide with Mother's Day on Sunday, the full letter will be published on Friday on his fan site WeezyThanxYou.com, launched so the Cash Money rapper could stay in touch with followers while he's away. Wayne pays homage to the all the hard-working women in the web excerpt.
"The love between a mother and her offspring is hands down the most beautiful thing God created," the incarcerated MC wrote on DrJays.com, which obtained an exclusive preview. "More than money, more than fame, more than cars. You know why? Because true love is the only thing that lasts from the moment you're born to the second you perish.
"Everything else eventually leaves, think about it. All love needs to survive is love. To all the mothers who read this letter, I hope this day allows you to feel the love and respect you so rightfully deserve. You are the role models, not me."
The letter will be the second official statement he's penned (excluding an initial update in which he thanked a number of fans by name for writing to him) since a sports post on NFL star Donovan McNabb getting traded. In his first-ever comments after turning himself in for an eight-month sentence on Rikers Island, Wayne opened up about his new daily routines and wrote back to fans who were already sending him correspondence.
"Your letter was so thoughtful and sincere," Wayne wrote in response to Nurris Terrero of New York. "The way you worded everything left me in awe. Please send suggestions on books I should read. I look forward to checking them out."
