Lil Wayne promises to be 'the same Martian I was when I left, just better' in last letter from jail

Lil-WayneImage Credit: Christopher Polk/Getty ImagesThis morning Lil Wayne released the most upbeat goodbye letter ever. Notes of the sort are usually a bit more sullen. But his happiness is understandable when you know where he’s prepping to exit: Rikers Island. After paying his debt to society and serving his eight-month stint in the bing for a weapons charge, Weezy gets out this Thursday. Throughout his stay at Rikers, Wayne’s been getting out letters to his fans on his WeezyThanxYou blog. And for its tenth and final letter, he thanked them one last time for their support.

“The very first day that I received mail,” he starts. “It was about 300 pieces or more! I smiled like a child [on] 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.” He also promised that he’ll be an improved version of himself, but still the spacey talent we remember him as. “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,” Wayne says.

Wayne’s been gone for a while, although it doesn’t feel like he’s really left. Since being incarcerated he’s had a No. 1 album, released several singles, and even appeared on Eminem’s new hit “No Love.” Have you felt his absence? As we’ve reported, Wayne will likely go straight to the studio to make more music upon release. Are you happy he’s getting out in less than two days? Let us know.

      The man is utterly the best rapper alive. This was all apart of his plan. can you not see how every great rapper has served time and then get out and everyone craves the music so much. That when the are released there sales are boosted dramatically. He could come out with the wackest song ever made but you will still love it jus because He’s LIL WAYNE, you thought he was from outer space now wait until he’s out. He’s going to take the rap game to another universe!

    I like Lil Wayne. I am interested in what he does next. I just wish he would keep his ass out of jail and not fall for the idea that he has to do illegal things to be legit in that buisness. I hope he walks the straight and narrow rather then be stupid again. Good Lucky Lil Wayne!
