Have a Merry Christmas Martians!
Hello World & Fellow Martians! I hope you enjoyed my Saturday Night Live performance. I can’t describe what it felt like being back in my element. I wanted to share some behind the scenes photos from my Rolling Stone photo shoot. The shoot was in Miami two weeks ago and just being able to do this type of stuff again is therapeutic. Be sure to pick up the issue when it hits stands. Thank you to the people at Rolling Stone for the opportunity.
Thank you for making 6 foot 7 foot #1 on itunes, you will continue to be #1 in my heart.
When you hear the Southwest Airlines tagline “You’re now free to move about the country” the one time that you could really appreciate it, is if you were to loose that freedom.
Stricken with failed knees, and an ill-fitted wheelchair that set her up for a horrible fall from a church ramp, Evelyn Austin, had become a prisoner in her Williamstown, Nj home, confined to her bed for almost 2 years.
I came to know about Evelyn through a series of letters that her Daughter Ronda Austin had written me while I was incarcerated.
This is their story. God Bless Austin Family

Hello World. Listen to my 1st single off the Carter IV, featuring Cory Gunz. It will be available on iTunes tomorrow. Young Mula baby!
What’s popping? I granted my first post-jail interview this morning with DJ Drama and Karen Civil. There were tons of questions thrown around during the interview and here’s a quick rundown of what was discussed.
- Mack Maine confirmed it last week and Weezy did today: the new single is “6’7″ with Cory Gunz. Expect that soon.
- Some confusion cleared up. There were rumors he would be doing a show in New York. Wayne took to Twitter yesterdayto denounce them. However, he did confirm he would be kicking his feet up alongside Carson Daly and Nicki Minaj to help usher in 2011.
- Saturday Night Live. On December 18, he and Eminem will be performing on the show making it his first television appearance since being released from Rikers last month.
- If you remember, Rolling Stone had Weezy on their cover earlier this year and documented his mindstate before serving his sentence. Apparently they wanted a before/after type thing as he just recently shot the cover to an upcoming issue for the magazine. This will be his third time receiving the honor.
- One of Wayne’s prison letters focused on his excitement for the new look Miami Heat. Yet, when he attends their games, it’s not really LeBron James and Dwayne Wade who speak to him. Rather, the opposing team normally does.
Enjoy this holiday season. Cherish these moments with your family. I love you all.
P.S. What are you thankful for?
Hello world! My world! Our world!
As I greet you all in my last days on this island, I must reflect. I think back to when I first arrived and I had no clue of what I’d be experiencing. I was never scared, worried, nor bothered by the situation. For that, I thank God, my family, and you, my amazing fans. I prayed for you all every night, as I’m aware that I was in your prayers as well. The very first day that I received mail, it was about 300 pieces or more! I smiled like a child of Christmas. But when I began to read them, my heart smiled. I laughed with some of you, reasoned with some of you, and even cried with some of you. I responded to as many of you that time would allow. I plan to keep reading and responding after my release. I thank you all for being so very supportive, as I never imagined how much impact my words and life can have. With this knowledge, I vow to continue to be me! For you have assured time that I don’t have to change for no one but God. I will be the same Martian I was when I left, just better. You fans are more than amazing, and I will for to the end of the world for your love. This isn’t the last of weezythanxyou.com I will continue to thank you when I’m home.
I simple LOVE you all.
P.S. Thanx for supporting my YM team the way you do!!
Now I like to thank my wonderful family and friends for never letting me down. Your love and support is worth the world. I am grateful for you all and I couldn’t have done it without your love. Also, I thank everyone who came to visit me. That shit meant a lot, straight up! I would do the same, if not more for you.
Now I must dedicated something to the woman in the picture…
…sitting on this bed with my back against one of the four walls I’ve been confined to, all I can think of is you. Staring at you staring at me, from the picture of you that I see. I try so hard to make the picture smile. You look so serious. Seriously beautiful. You, me, we are one. Then I look further to the right and there’s a picture of “the bed by the water”… where I dream to be with the woman in the picture that still won’t smile. I sometimes talk to the picture, but it never responds. Although, I’ve been told that a picture speaks a thousands words, I only wish that this picture would speak of four… “I love you too.” That would be the perfect response to what I frequently say to it. You see, the picture of “the bed by the water” has sand in it, and the woman in the other picture has sand in her hair… put them together, and she’s there. And when I dream, I’m there with her. Shhh… quietly these four walls become that place in the picture. And the woman in the picture begins to whisper… “I love you too”… she responds!
And now she smiles. Imagination is perfect.
Dedicated to the woman in the picture.
By now I’m guessing that you all have heard about my recent relocation to the bing, which is punitive segregation. Basically, no T.V., no radio, no snacks/junkfood, and one phone call a week. This punishment has been handed to me for my earlier MP3 incident. I admit, I fu#ked up and now I must deal with the consequences. As I write this, I only have 25 days left, and it’ll be even less than that when you read this. So honestly, I’m fine. Obviously, this gives me a lot of time to myself and a lot of alone time with my thoughts, which can be creatively dangerous. I do miss being able to hear from my family everyday but once a week will have to suffice. To them, I apologize. I’m still able to receive mail so reading and responding is still a huge part of my day. I’d like to thank everyone that sent me B-Day cards and wishes… that was terrific. You all are wonderful, simply wonderful.
Hello world. Time is ticking and I’m counting every second. Because of my new limitations, this unfortunately has to be my last letter. I don’t think people truly understand how much their thoughts and well wishes have helped me through this time in my life. Not everyone is as lucky as I am and it humbles me daily. You would be amazed what positivity can do in a negative environment. I’m going to miss reading about your lives. I’m going to miss looking at the pictures. They were the highlight of my days aside from speaking with my kids. Don’t stress over this in 27 days, the ride starts again.
