Lil Wayne has thanked P Diddy for visiting him in jail in a letter written in his prison cell.

The rapper, who is set to be released on Thursday (November 4) after serving a sentence for gun crime, wrote a letter to from Rikers Island, where he is currently being held.

In it Wayne answered questions about his time inside and thanked P Diddy for being among those who have visited him while he has been incarcerated.

"All artists and friends were very supportive. Thank God I've gotten two visits a week since the day I walked in," he wrote. "I'd have to say the visit from Diddy was most surprising because there's a lot that you're required to go through and to think he did just to see me is more than cool. But again, everybody has been more than supportive. I never felt alone."

Wayne also said that following his release he will be "giving my musical attention to 'The Carter IV' and promoting 'I Am Not A Human Being'," though he added that he may not stop there.

"I may drop a mixtape! " he explained. "You know me!"
