London, Feb 23 (IANS) Rapper Lil Wayne has launched his own blog on social networking site Twitter just eight days before he’s due to report to jail.
Contactmusic.com reports that the “Lollipop” hitmaker, real name Dwayne Carter Jr, will appear before a New York judge next week and is expected to spend a year behind bars for weapons possession.

But Wayne is not letting his impending prison stint stop him from reaching out to his fans. He began tweeting under the user name liltunechi.

In his first post, he wrote: “I’m super new to this twitter s**t wasup thou (though)!……….follow me………. 8 days of freedom.”

The news spread quickly on Twitter and the star had already got up more than 75,000 followers within 15 hours of signing up to the micro-blogging site.
