Lil Wayne, the inexplicably attractive yet understandably popular hip hop artist who is known to some as the greatest living rapper, has recently begun a series of blogs for ESPN.com.
According to the editor's note on the talented lyricist's blog, "This is the first in a blog series by mega-rapper of the moment Lil Wayne. When speaking to him for a package about at-bat music in MLB (a bunch of guys use Lil Wayne), he offered to blog for us."
Here is a delightful excerpt from his first blog:
This is the first entry in the blog I'm doing for ESPN The Magazine. I don't watch nothing but sports—no movies, no news, no television shows—so I thought this would be fun.
Further on in the same blog entry, Weezy talks about some of his favourite teams and athletes, especially noting his fondness for tennis superstar Roger Federer:
Besides the Packers, my favorite teams are the Red Sox, the Lakers and the Boston Bruins. I also love tennis. I had a lot of people over to my place to watch the Wimbledon final this year, and we went crazy. I love Federer but Nadal is my favorite. He's the man. I love his motivation and his heart is big. He leaves it on the court. And when I found out he still lives with his family despite his success, that was it for me. That's unbelievable right there. That just goes to show you where his heart is at, how much love he has.
The ESPN website does not specify how many entries Lil Wayne will be responsible for.
