The 27-year-old rapper, born Dwayne Michael Carter Jr., joined Twitter on Sunday – just eight days before he is due to start serving time after pleading guilty to weapons charges stemming from a 2007 arrest. He already has 129,000 followers. (Fun fact: Of the 13 people Lil Wayne is following, two have “lil” in their handles.)
Here was Lil Wayne’s (@liltunechi) first tweet:
“im super new to this twitter shit but wudup tho !……….follow me biot¢h……….wudup mak……happy bday LO……8 days of freedom..ym”
The Grammy Award-winning Wayne performed at the Grammys earlier this month.
His sentence is expected to begin Tuesday.
