Rapper Lil Wayne has launched a website from behind bars so he can keep in contact with his fans.

The "Lollipop" hitmaker only began a year-long sentence for weapons possession in maximum-security New York prison Rikers Island last month, and the workaholic star has already created an online outlet for his messages to fans.

Launching the site on Friday, Lil Wayne wrote, "During my prison stint, I want my fans to know I love you. I want all of you to know that I appreciate all the mail I get, and this is my way of saying thank you."

The note is Wayne’s first communication since he posted a goodbye to fans and friends on his site on March 8 while he was on his way to jail.

His first post, titled "Gone ’til November," reads, "The more time you spend contemplating what you should have done… you lose valuable time planning what you can and will do."

He adds, "I work out a lot because it helps pass the time. I read the Bible everyday. Jail didn’t make me find God, He’s always been there. They can lock me up, but my spirit and my love can never be confined to prison walls."
