Just eight days before he's scheduled to start serving a one-year prison sentence, Lil Wayne
opened a Twitter account to communicate his inner thoughts to all his fans. Wayne opened the account under the name liltunechi
on Sunday and took to Ustream yet again to let his fans know about the news. Lil Wayne shows off his bottom teeth following his marathon dental surgery last week. (From Ustream.com)
Fresh off a marathon dental surgery session, Wayne showed off his lower teeth, which were missing his signature oral bling while talking through the Twitter process with cohort Lil Twist
"Y'all even seeing Wayne go through the whole Twitter process!" Twist jokes. "He don't know what he's doing." Lil Wayne agreed: "I don't know what I'm doing! I was born in the '80s. This sh-- wasn't out then."
Fortunately for his Twitter followers, Wayne figured it out. His first post reads: "im super new to this twitter sh-- but wudup tho !..........follow me biot¢h..........wudup mak......happy bday LO......8 days of freedom..ym." Later Monday he wrote a cryptic message: "aint it funny how love finds you in your darkest place...?"
Lil Wayne will have to get all his Twittering done before March 2, when he is expected to report to Riker's Island to serve his time. The musician has been recording new music in marathon sessions to take advantage of his last days of freedom before serving his prison sentence.Lil Wayne at the Grammy Awards
