Bill Clinton, the former President of the United States, has discussed the impending release of the rapper Lil Wayne from prison, saying the 28-year-old has a 'new chance' in life, reports USA Today.
LIL WAYNE is set to be released from Rikers Island prison in New York this week after serving an eight month sentence, and Clinton spoke about the rapper in a radio interview on Tuesday (2nd November 2010) saying, "This guy's smart, and he's got ability, and he's got a new chance now. What I hope will happen is that he has a good life now". He added that his daughter has tried to coax him into listening to more of Wayne's music, saying, "You know, my daughter introduced me to rap and hip-hop music after I said some things she thought were not very smart. She said, 'Dad, you need to listen, all these people are smart".
The rapper recently posted a thank you note on his blog 'Weezy Thanx You', saying, "I think back to when I first arrived and I had no clue of what I'd be experiencing. I was never scared, worried, nor bothered by the situation. For that, I thank God, my family, and you, my amazing fans".
