#WelcomeHomeWeezy celebration plans set

Early Thursday morning, Lil Wayne, whose real name is Dwayne Carter, was released from an eight month stint at Riker’s Island, tweeting "#WelcomeHomeWeezy" and "aaaaaaahhhhhhmmmmm baaaaakkkkkkkkkk" within hours of his release. Back in March, Wayne was sentenced to a year in prison on gun charges, with news of his projected November 4 release date arriving in July.

The anticipation for the 28-year-old artist to be "free at last" extended far past what his loved ones must have felt. Between the #freeweezy t-shirts and hashtags, and even MTV’s Weezy Watch, an around-the-clock catalog of everything to do with Wayne’s release, it’s clear that the fans have been ready.

So ready, in fact, the makers of life-size celebrity wall posters claim the frenzied demands of “millions” of Weezy lovers caused them to have to release a Lil Wayne Fathead earlier than expected. “We just kept getting bombarded by Weezy fans demanding that we release his Fathead immediately, so we caved and his Fathead is officially free”, said a Fathead spokesman.  “We even sent his Fathead along with a special code to say no hard feelings”. Okay then.

For those who want to attempt to steal a glimpse of Wayne in person, you’ll need to make plans to be in Miami, Florida, this weekend, as that’s where the rapper’s “welcome home” extravaganza will take place on Sunday night.

“Bryan 'Birdman' Williams, rapper and co-CEO of Cash Money Records has spared no expense for Lil Wayne’s upcoming official homecoming party,” a statement reads about the event. “While the location is being kept under wraps,” the statement said, they can tell you who will be there: Drake, Kevin Rudolph, Jay Sean and, of course, the rest of the Cash Money family.

Young Money's Mack Maine told MTV that Wayne will be “treated like a king” at the event, where there "should be a lot of beautiful women [and] beautiful scenery."

"It's gonna be crazy,” Maine assured MTV. “We have a private party first and then we going to King of Diamonds after, which is a strip club. It's going to be crazy, it's going to be real elegant, extravagant, we gonna party like when Frank came home, like [the movie] 'King of New York.’”

  9. Really?

    Why do so many people seriously care about this? He's rapper, not that good, but whatever. Anyway, he's a role model to kids and should get his crap together, but that isn't the problem, there's a demand for his music otherwise he wouldn't be where he's at today. I don't like his music, but that's how far "music" these days has fallen. I don't think there should be a celebration for the guy, he's just another person getting out of jail. That's all I've got to say about it.

    Well I am glad that he actually did his time, enough is enough..I do like his music.....but its time for him to grow up and be father...and be a grown man about things in his life...no more tatts cuz trust me that is not cute at all.

    Soon every rapper will feel going to jail isn official stamp for being true G. Wayne made something out of nothing he did it with hip hop bcuz that's what hip hop is about struggles. however I dispise his influence over young black men to wear pants hangin off their ass.You need to study roots of hip hop,for those who don't know Jamaica, WI is the origin.

    I'm 36 and grew up in N.O. (Hollygrove) and have followed Wayne's career closely. I always knew he would be the breakout star of the Hot Boyz, and prayed he would mature with age...sadly, that does not seem to be the case. I'm sure there is nothing in the world that would warm the heart of a child than to know that they are first priority and that daddy wants nothing more than to spend his first free days with them. I don't care if he has a month of vacations planned with them next week, he's already letting them down. Also, wish he would have spoke out and stated that he regrets his ignorant mistakes, but I guess he doesn't. What a waste, yeah he's huge, but can do so much more with his celebrity!

    Listen, first off, Wayne is not a gangster or thug. He grew up on a "upper" middle-class neighborhood. He went to one of the top private schools in New Orleans, Layfette. They say he lived a hard life? Please, they got him off the street at 11 when he was signed to the Bad Boyz (or some other no-lyricsim-skill teen rap group). His skill has dropped surmountably, although he wasn't AMZAING either in the past. He's decent with more respectable lines and verses than whole songs. I just can't stand how everyone is d-ck riding someone who calls themselves "The Greatest Rapper Alive" when he' far from that. Just open your eyes to common sense people, and in maters of hip-hop/rap, open your mind to real lyricism.

    • KCV

      What are you talking about and where did you do your research!!!!??? I grew up in the same neighborhood (10 yrs before Wayne) and still own a house there. Hollygrove is FAR from "upper" middle class, yes maybe in the 70's/80's, but it was straight "hood" by the time he came around....especially his block. Lafayette was FAAAAAAR from a good school and probably just got renovated for the first time since it was built after Katrina....it's the local public school in Hollygrove, most of New Orleans kids went to Catholi Schools, if you were at Lafayette it was assumed you could not afford to go elsewhere. I agree that Wayne is no gangsta, he grew up around and under a lot, but became a celebrity at the early age of 13...not much time for gang banging. I am also shocked by how many grown, intellectuals actually follow this fool. Please Wayne, grow up...you're NO Tupac who at least left a legacy of good, uplifting music....there's nothing you have made that anyone will want to play at their 50th wedding anniversary with their grandkids around, meaning you will have no legacy on "Lollipop"

    This guy is a thug and a criminal, and yet he's being celebrated as if he were a conquering hero of sorts. Why is it our culture glamorizes this type of low life? He committed a crime, he went to jail, and now everyone wants to act like he just descended from Mt. Olympus? I think society would be better served if he stayed behind bars.

He doesn't pay my bills nor make any of my life decisions. he has to live his own life as i have to live and make my own decisions.

      Actually, smoking weed is illegal, so he does not have that right. I do understand what you mean about celebrating his wealth, etc... and I think you are right. I would probably do the same thing. The problem is that his style/words in this music influence the younger generation, and not in the right way. I do believe that the parents should have the main role in raising their children (thereby paying attention to the music as well), instead of the music itself, however this isn't the case. All that being said, I don't think it is a good example to celebrate a homecoming from prison without remembering WHY he went there.

Its PRISON. Maybe I dont get it bcuz I didnt see any family members go to prison. I wish I would get out of prison and expect a celebration, straight silly. Being a rich thug is still a thug.

      Wow! I am pretty impressed at the blatant racism portrayed on this thread... I mean I can understand not appreciating someone's music, or not understanding why somepne's release from prison is noteworthy. Yes, i am black, yes I am educated, and no, i have never even had detention.... But Mr. Steven segal, Jen and all other half-hearted klansmen, what I don't happen to understand is why Cindy McCain and ryan Seacrests riff is news as well... I don't understand why Paris Hilton was caught with cocaine and not in jail, or why Yes your beloved George W was both a former drunk driver and cokehead...opps I said it... but no jail time. It's not the color of your skin it is the 0s in your account. Get over it! I do agree that Weezy is not the "ideal black man" but he is not or at least no longer hitting anyone over the head and taking their wallet... He is however giving back through a slew of charities. Does that make him a good person? Absolutely not. But to call someone filth and to mention that someone is a waste of life, well if the same can be said for the Robert Downey Jrs and Charlie Sheins of the "white world"... Lastly, Anyone who is dismissing his lyrical skills, please don't confuse that with lyrical content. SF or "da Bay" is good for nothing except medicinal mary jane and seafood. Aside from J Z being the greatest rapper alive Lil Wayne is in the Top 5 with Busta, Ludacris, and Andre 3000

      I am a black man and i can imagine your level of intelligence through the comment you made. What is "gud" or worth emulating in going to jail for illegal possession of a fire arm ? "Weezy" needs to flight right and take care of his business. Enough is enough of this ghetto mentality that keeps black people down. You can be in showbiz and be decent at the same time. Beyonce, Mario, Usher, brother Tyler Perry are all good examples !

      @tmac- Clearly he should start wearing skinny jeans, write like bieber, act like steele, and cop out of a prison sentence over "stress, claustrophobia, ect." The guy is a multi millionaire and can get tats wherever he wants as he probably wont be going to future job interviews. He writes about what he knows and his rhyme schemes are pretty impressive. The fact that a millionaire rapper had a fire arm for protection is a no brainer considering what happens to many famous rappers. Just sayin, he is kind of a stand up guy. Who are you or anyone for the matter to tell Dwayne tips on self improvement.
