Lil Wayne Pays Tribute To Mothers

With Mother’s Day right around the corner, Weezy penned a letter from jail paying homage to all the mothers across the globe.

Previous Letter: Lil Wayne On Donovan McNabb Trade

Dr. Jays |Karen Civil

It’s not many words in the world more powerful than “mother.” Those six letters can bring joy, just like they bring pain. It can invoke excitement just as quickly as it can anger, depending on the context, I guess. For myself, it means more than I can ever possibly describe, but I will try. I associate the term with immeasurable strength, beautiful patience and infinite wisdom.

You can probably already tell, but the main reason for this letter is to pay tribute to every positive matriarch on Mother’s Day. In my eyes, that day is 365 days a year, but I understand the significance of the holiday. The love between a mother and her offspring is hands down the most beautiful thing God created. More than money, more than fame, more than cars. You know why? Because true love is the only thing that lasts from the moment you’re born to the second you perish. To all the mothers who read this letter, I hope this day allows you to feel the love and respect you so rightfully deserve. You are the role models, not me.

To the mothers of my beautiful children, there remains nothing but love, adoration and respect coming from my heart. Even with the mistakes I’ve made in my life, you give me reason to smile in a place where they attempt to break your spirit each day the sun rises. I love my babies with all my heart. And the fact you brought them into this world only gives me more and more motivation to write these words. Happy Mother’s Day.

Last but not least, my own mother, Ms. Cita. You are my heart and you are my soul. Please don’t ever forget that. We’ve been through everything one could possibly imagine together. With each obstacle that has come our way, you have handled it with the grace and dignity I can only hope to mimic. Even writing this, it’s tough to come to grips with the fact I cannot spend this special day with you. Like you always preached, a man must accept his own actions – good and bad – and learn from them. And that’s what I’m doing. Mom, I love you more than you will ever know. Probably more than I love my own self. Enjoy Mother’s Day because you deserve it. Also, find comfort knowing your son loves you and misses you like crazy.

To everyone, again, I cannot stress this enough, thank you so, so much for the support. My spirits are sky high thanks to you all. It makes the day pass faster knowing people out there care about you and want you to do well. I pray the letters keep coming in at the volume they are right now, especially the overseas ones. They let me know life still does move on, even if I forget at times. I just ask that you all keep the letters to one page. And keep sending the pictures, too. Some of you are talented beyond belief with the drawings and paintings.

I’ll go ahead and end the letter here, but again Happy Mother’s Day to each and every lady who has raised/is raising her kids the best way possible. Take care. God bless. Live life. Show love.

“I can trust my loving Savior
When I fear the world’s alarms;
There’s no safer place of resting
Than His everlasting arms”

    Hmmmm, interesting! I believe it was MJB that recently said… If we could save women, than we would save the world!!! And its the truth, women are about as lost as ever! All of us know a “Black Girl Lost”, probably more than 1, and of all different races. But on the positive note for Mother’s Day… Happy Mother’s Day to everybody’s mother!

    Yup and if what he’s saying is true then weezy n birdman fucked up big time. It means that all the money from a milli n Bangladesh didn’t get a cent of it. Man if that was me i’d be sendin niggas down their fukin crib. Shit we all got bills 2 pay.

  • webstar

    Weezy is a good guy. I’m not much of a fan of his music & he makes mistakes like all of the rest of us but I can tell he has a good heart. Plus he better release some Mother’s Day blessing with all those baby mama’s he got, lol.

  • teejay

    Uh… To those sayin wayne is soft because of this, have any of you jeard “dear mamma”?

    Wayne is soft, but this isn’t what makes him soft. His heart is in the right place. Nothin wrong with that.

  • Concerning the Bandladesh thing- Baby has ALWAYZ been like that. Im talking bout even back in the old Cash Money days. Somebody need to straighten ol boy out because he has a record of fuckn ppl over.

  • Eric_Wright

    NOBODY ever once thought of you as a role model you stupid [email protected]@ER!!!! JUST LOOK AT the tats on yourFACE YOU SHOULD BE ASHAMED TO EVEN BE A FAMOUS BLACK MAN!!!!!!!!!!

  • Interscope Employee

    young moula babyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyy

    haha! Fuck Young Money nigga. But Wayne seems like a real cool nigga when he’s not frontin with his bloodin and shit

  • stars&stripes

    can he just BE in jail? and give us a shout when he’s released?

  • ya’ll would be crying like little school girls if you even did 1 day in the box……fuck you’d commit suicide alone over not being able to come on this site……so til ya lived in the shoes of someone, shut the fuck up….or you just look dumb.

    go ahead & hate on my opinion, its the truth.

  • will


    i seen the excerpts on where dude was saying wayne aint getting royalties he getting an allowance and Young Money is also on allowance money

    Some niggas acknowledge they loving they fans as a group its cool that an artist took time out of they day to acknowledge individuals

    this is shit you have time to do while being locced up and its smart if he’s able to acknowledge all them fans that nigga could sell a blank disc and the shit plague


    Nobody wants to go to prison I mean who is proud have their freedom tooking away shit I would rather sit on this site all day then go to jail thats just me my nigga My Uncle was Locced up for 13 years on a Level 4 and dude never speaks about it nor do he brag about him doing time whether that shit is a life or a second nobody should be bragging about jail time and fill like it validates you to speak on a situation becuz we never been to jail and we dont plan on going my nigga *_Whatthefuccareyoudoing withyourself_* Nigga real talk this aint 95
