Within moments of the account being launched, artists like Trey Songz were among his thousands of new followers, reports Billboard.com. Songz even urged other Twitter users to follow Lil Wayne.

“Aye… and get at da homie. Wayne @liltunechi He got twitter for 8days b4 he go innnnn!!!! FOLLOW,” Songz tweeted by way of his account, @SongzYuuup.

Weezy also announced his Twitter account was live via a Ustream session on Young Money artist Lil Twist’s site, where the hip hop star also took the opportunity to show off his recent dental surgery — surgery which delayed his original sentencing court date earlier this month.

“Yeah, I got the bottom grill out for right now” Wayne said via the stream, who removed his lower diamond-encrusted grill. “That’s why I’m not showing y’all too much.”

Via the live stream Wayne also revealed that he and “Twist did a song last night, ladies, for ‘Tha Carter IV’ album. When I tell you it’s crazy – man! Man!” he said. Wayne then went on to reveal some of the lyrics from the unnamed track. “She a monster, but I’m a beast, though/ Take her clothes off, with my teeth, though.”
