Lil Wayne called into Funkmaster Flex‘s radio show tonight on Hot 97 live from Rikers Island. The two spoke about Weezy‘s fans and WeezyThanxYou.com, the artists he would like to work with when he is released, his daily routine, his love for sports, Eminem, Drake, Nicki Minaj, how he plans to change when he is released in November, the I’m Not A Human Being EP, and much more. Above, you can watch part one of their interview and you can watch part two after the jump.
It’s just over three months until Lil Wayne is released from Rikers Island! But until then, Weezy gives us an update in his latest letter from jail on how he is doing, his daily routine, writing lyrics, his Young Money family and more. You can read Tune‘s letter below:
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.

A Riker’s Island employee shared some information on what Lil Wayne‘s first day was like in prison on Monday. According to this employee, it looks like Weezy has been receiving special treatment from the C.O.’s, and they have been disciplined for it. You can read it all below:
So far the prisoners love him. He’s a celebrated star and they dig his image, his work ethic, his music. There’s a lotta hype surrounding the fact the he’s not in protective custody (PC), but in general population. But it’s not really a big thing. In prison, they treat all inmates like the next. He does have limited protection, meaning there is someone that stays with him at all times. But because of who he is, this is also the norm. There hasn’t been much activity with Wayne, especially since he’s busy undergoing the processing an inmate goes through immediately upon his incarceration. Paperwork, tests, all that. Tomorrow, they’ll be conducting DNA testing, specifically because his case centers around DNA evidence. The only thing out of the norm is the amount of calls the prison has been receiving from Wayne’s people, hounding them with questions about whether he’ll be forced to cut his hair, and a few weeks ago, what would the situation be with him having all them carats in his mouth (I think that’s why they opted to have that emergency dental procedure). Still, like I said before, in Rikers, they’re not concerned with one’s celebrity status.
A couple of guards have been written up, only because they’ve acted like fans, having more personal interaction with Wayne than is procedure, prolly acting all star struck, which, once again, the system does it’s best to discourage. Me getting this info and writing about it here puts my contact at risk of losing her job. Still, we do this for our culture. For the most part though, Wayne has been pretty quiet, staying mostly inside his jail cell. There doesn’t seem to be anyone, any faction trying to get at him in any harmful way, because he’s new and because he hasn’t violated any of the codes customary to inmate living the prison life. As I was told, it’s too early to determine how the rest of his experience will be, but so far, so good. It’s all in Lil Wayne’s hands.
Props iHipHop, and hit the jump to see what Weezy‘s daily routine is inside the prison and what he can do each day:
Here is the tagless CD quality version of Menace‘s “Blood Niggaz” featuring Lil Wayne and Mitchy Slick. We already posted the song in late January with tags, and you can also watch the official music video for this record and view some photos from the video shoot here!
PS: Everyone keeps asking me why am I not posting up the new Lil Wayne snippet called “Age” which leaked last night… it’s because the full record is actually already out and was released in 2009. It’s a Natasha song titled “Sidekick Remix” and it features Weezy F Baby.
In other news, Young Money‘s “Roger That” and “Girl I Got You” music videos are being premiered on BET 106 & Park tonight! You can also watch a video below of a prison guard from New York’s Rikers Island prison breaking down what will be Wayne‘s daily routine while he is in jail:
