Lil Wayne Says Goodbye to Fans Before Heading to Jail

A surprisingly upbeat Lil Wayne took to the Internet this morning to bid a video farewell to his fans on Ustream. Lil Wayne is headed off to jail at Rikers after pleading guilty to ‘attempted gun possession’ charges stemming from an incident in New York last year.

Lil Wayne was busted last year in July after the NYPD pulled over his tour bus when they allegedly smelled marijuana emanating from the vehicle. Officers claimed Lil Wayne tossed a bag containing a gun into the bus as they approached. Wayne later pled guilty to a charge of “attempted” gun possession and was sentenced to a year in the slammer.

“I’m out this bitch,” Lil Wayne said in his Ustream goodbye video to his fans Tuesday. “To all my fans, my real fans I really, really truly love you. I love you with all of me for real.” Wayne also took the opportunity to promote his just released LP Rebirth, urging fans to download at least one song.

Giving a shout out to his hometown New Orleans Saints for their Super Bowl win, Wayne seemed rather chipper for a man about to spend a lot of time behind bars at a notoriously rough prison.

“Thank you from the bottom of me,” Wayne said in closing out his video. “Do not forget about me ’cause I will forever think about you. I cannot wait for you to see me again.”
