The rap star said in a radio interview that he’s done a lot of reflecting since being tossed into Rikers in March on a gun charge.

“Everybody says that you’re here for a reason,” he told Hot 97 from jail on Tuesday. “I search for that reason every day.”

The multiplatinum “Lollipop” singer said he has learned from the crime that landed him behind bars.

“I’m gonna move more carefully and be aware of my situation and status,” he said.

Lil Wayne, whose real name is Dwayne Carter, was arrested in 2007 after Manhattan cops spotted him smoking marijuana and found he was carrying a .40-caliber weapon.

He pleaded guilty to attempted criminal possession of a weapon in October 2009 and was sentenced to a year in Rikers in March.

The Grammy winner is scheduled to be released in November.

The rapper said he spends his days reading and responding to fan mail, calling his family and other rappers, including Drake and Nicki Minaj.

“I could read all the fan mail I get all day, every day,” he said.

The New Orleans native said conditions in Rikers were worse than he expected, but he is trying to make the best of the situation.

“[The food here] is not what I want,” he said. “But it is what it is.”
