NEW YORK (Billboard) - A hopeful Lil Wayne wrote a final letter from jail and posted it on his weezythanxyou.com blog site on Thursday.

"Because of my new limitations, this unfortunately has to be my last letter," Wayne wrote in his first paragraph, referencing his solitary confinement restrictions.

"Thank you from the bottom of my heart to everyone who is supporting I Am Not A Human Being. It amazes me each time people go out and support my music," Wayne, who also goes by Weezy, wrote in the letter dubbed "My Last Written Lines."

"I'll always be in debt to you for that. Keep rocking your "Free Weezy" tees and rocking out to my music. Trust me when I say this is almost over. I love you. I'll continue to pray for all of you. Just keep doing the same for me."

Wayne also expressed to his fans how much their constant support helped him get through this difficult time.

"I don't think people truly understand how much their thoughts and well wishes have helped me through this time in my life," he said. "Not everyone is as lucky as I am and it humbles me daily...Don't stress over this in 27 days, the ride starts again."

Wayne is serving time in a New York jail following his conviction on a gun possession charge. He will be a free man on November 4. He then begins serving three years probation on a drug charge in Arizona.
