    Lil' Wayne Gives First Radio Interview From Rikers to Hot 97's Funkmaster Flex - Weezy talks about what he has learned from jail stint

    Incarcerated rapper Lil Wayne has given his first radio interview from Rikers Island and spoke exclusively with New York's Hot 97 radio personality veteran Funkmaster Flex! Wayne has been very productive and positive while behind bars on a gun conviction, assisting other inmates, writing music and most importantly, reflecting on his situation! Weezy said, "I'll definitely move more carefully" to longtime radio personality Funkmaster Flex about the precautions he will take after leaving Rikers Island in November. "Everybody says you're here for a reason, so, I promise you Flex, I try to find that reason every day. I think when I get out, that'll be the only time I'll know the answer...[I'm Not A Human Being EP] will drop before Tha Carter IV, only on the Internet. It's stuff I recorded right before I came in. I don't want the phone to hang-up on us so I want to say thank-you to all my fans and I love you Flex for giving me this opportunity..."

    I think other jailed rappers, rockers, starlets and celebutards –ahem, Lindsay Lohan!- need to take note of how Weezy handled himself while in the big house and he did it with grace and class. Nice work Wayne. November is almost here, bro!

    Are you looking forward to hearing more from Weezy when he is free at last?
