(EAST ELMHURST, NY) -- While Lil Wayne finishes up his sentence in prison, his proteges Nicki Minaj and Drake are tearing up the charts, and Wayne admits he wishes it were him out there. In a new posting on his website WeezyThanxYou.com, the rapper writes, "To my [Young Money/Cash Money] family, you are the bleepin' best! Nik, I am jealous of you and Drizzy, but it's cool! I miss you all and keep killin' em. I love y'all."
Wayne, who celebrated his 28th birthday on Monday, writes that he is "awaiting freedom patiently," adding, "I can't bleepin' wait!" To pass the time until his release in November, Wayne says he's "still playing UNO. Still doing push-ups and such...I've been trying to get as much rest as I can because I know I won't when I'm out of here." He adds that he enjoys listening to sports and slow jams, and reading all the letters from his fans, for which he says he is "forever grateful."
