Letter #04: As Time Flies

Hello world… I’m good. Counting the days and still smiling. Most of those smiles come from hearing my kids’ voices over the phone. The others come from reading fan mail. 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. 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.

So I’ve been writing and let me be the first to tell you that the lyrics that I’m writing are… well there’s no word that I can think of that properly defines them. Amazing would be too typical and perfect would be unfair. I listen to the radio sometimes, emphasis on sometimes, and I hear the new music. I like some. I applaud my Young Money family for what they’re doing. As I’m not surprised. This is what we’re supposed to do. Congrats to Drake and Nicki for all their recent success. Those 2 are going to have me retiring early. I love my team. Much love to Tez and Mack. I know that people are inquisitive of what I do all day, so here goes. I wake up around 11AM. Have some coffee. Call my kids, and my wonderful mother. I then shower up. Read fan mail. Have lunch. Back on the phone. Read a book or write some thoughts down. Have dinner. Phone. Pushups. Then I listen to ESPN on the radio. Read the bible, then sleep. That’s my day.

I’ll end this letter, but never my love. I’m gone. Oh, and how ‘bout dem Lakers!?!

P.S. I thank my fans for appreciating me the way you do.

    Greetings Wayne:

    When you’re out, it’s imperative that you make contact with Grear Turnbull on FB or myspace or the email provided. You’re not in your “proper person.” She’ll tell you why…& how. Had you been, you wouldn’t even be where you are now. And can you visit a sista named Ja (nicknamed Weezy), she’s a die-hard fan from the gate. She’s from Queens–she suffers from… Well, I’ll let her tell you. But there’s no cure for it. If you can visit her b4 u leave the Q borough (upon your release), she’d just be bowled over! Email me, I’ll give you all the particulars. Even her boyfriends resembles you–now, you know? Smile.

    Let me breeze…

  36. Jamanda Austin-Franks says:

    Hey Love,
    First off let me start by saying ” talent is best nurtured in solitude ” i love that quote it fits you and your talented ways, Last night i watched the BET 2010 awards and if only you saw all the love everybody showed you. It brought plenty smiles to my face and courage in my heart that you will make it thru no matter what the case may be,Its hard to look at wayne && have a negative vibe about him. Its crazy because theres not one mixtape, Cd, Or youtube video that i havent heard or seen that i didnt like. Even though i cant have you in my arms seriously i still say your the man that i turn to when i dnt feel like im pretty enough or my world is flipped upside down, I know you probably wont read this but it doesnt matter because this is the closest thing i have to get to you. HAHAHA i know everybody probably thinking im a crazy female and I have my dreams to high but when you have high dreams you have the greatest potential for reality. Some Males feel like being in jail is the end of there life but it doesnt it makes you stronger in the end not only your body type gets bigger you mind builds stronger, Jail should never be a way of punishment its jst gives you time to get your life and your future track straight with no problems or bumpy edges down the path & if you have any bumps edges you know how to get thru them without doing something extremely stupid.At this point everyone needs a motivation speaker to make them stronger in many ways but what they dont notice is that they are their own motivaional speaker deep down uner the pile of ashes on hatered you have in your life, You dont always have to live like your lifestyle you can change it up try something new . Well, Ima wrap this lecture up by saying I love you Dwayne M. Carter and these days will be over quicker then you think. Keep ya head above the clouds even if theres MANY PEOPLE thats trying to hold you beneath the water.. && to your haters love them because deep down they love you 2 they know damn well they got some wayne on their ipods,mp3 players, and phones. You cant run away from the best rapper alive..

    Love Always,
    Mrs. Tune ♥

You have variety, talent, swag (on infinity), and you are so dearly loved.. Women and young girls across the world adore you and men of all ages look up to you.. You are my idol and you always will be. Love you so much WEEZY!
