Music news didn't entirely dry up when Lil Wayne went to prison, and by the way, we have this great beat that we've been messing with in Garage Band that sounds a lot like crickets chirping.
Fortunately, Weezy has enough people on the outside working for him that WeezyThanxYou.com could become a reality. Not only does the site have a countdown sidebar reminding us that in 215 days, bloggers can resume normal overproduction of content related to the rapper. Also coming soon, Wayne's ESPN blog!

care. God bless."
