NEW YORK (AP) -- Lil Wayne wants his fans to know that his spirit and love will "never be confined to prison walls."
The Grammy Award-winning rapper's message was posted Friday to his new Web site. He was sentenced in March to a year in jail for having a loaded gun on his tour bus.
The 27-year-old says he's in good spirits and thinks about his four children daily. He says: "I just hope my love and adoration for them provides a temporary bandage on a wound I unknowingly inflicted on them."
Lil Wayne also says he'll be blogging soon for ESPN. But ESPN the Magazine's Editor-in-Chief Gary Belsky (BEHL'-skee) says there are no plans for him to blog at the moment.
Lil Wayne says he'll be reaching out to fans through his Web site every week.
His "Tha Carter III" was the 2008 best-selling album and won a Grammy for best rap album.
