With Mother’s day coming Sunday, incarcerated rapper Lil Wayne may not write rhymes, but took the time to pen a letter and pay homage to the mother all around.

Going from his recent track record before going to jail, he has created more than enough new mothers.

Apparently the time behind bars has created more inspiration for the rapper, leaving words of wisdom like he is a writer for Hallmark cards.

It’s not many words in the world more powerful than “mother.” Those six letters can bring joy, just like they bring pain. It can invoke excitement just as quickly as it can anger, depending on the context, I guess. For myself, it means more than I can ever possibly describe, but I will try. I associate the term with immeasurable strength, beautiful patience and infinite wisdom

You can probably already tell, but the main reason for this letter is to pay tribute to every positive matriarch on Mother’s Day. In my eyes, that day is 365 days a year, but I understand the significance of the holiday. The love between a mother and her offspring is hands down the most beautiful thing God created. More than money, more than fame, more than cars. You know why? Because true love is the only thing that lasts from the moment you’re born to the second you perish. To all the mothers who read this letter, I hope this day allows you to feel the love and respect you so rightfully deserve. You are the role models, not me.

Check the letter in its entirety here.

180 days left until Lil Wayne is out of prison.  Follow the countdown.
