Weezy’s back! The city of Miami converged to welcome back Lil Wayne. The rapper received a homecoming fit for a king as Cash Money executives Birdman and Slim hosted a lavish party for their superstar on Sunday (Nov. 7).
After taking in the Hornets-Heat game in New Orleans and performing with Drake in Las Vegas, Weezy capped off his first weekend back home in Miami. His CMYMB family including Drizzy, a teal-haired Nicki Minaj, Jay Sean, Shanell, and Kevin Rudolf celebrated at the retrofitted bank, along with Busta Rhymes, Fat Joe, T-Pain, Wale, D. Woods, and Cool & Dre. The guest of honor arrived with a cigar in hand and two showgirls flanking him on each arm.
“I just wanna thank everybody,” Mr. Carter told MTV News on the carpet. “Not only MTV fans, but the fans across the whole world. Most of all, my family. I couldn’t do it without them and I would never do it without them.”
The celebration continued at King of Diamonds strip club where $700 bottles of PJ Rose Perrier-Jouët champagne were chilling on ice. Once Weezy recovers from the festivities, he will return to the studio to work on Tha Carter IV and a Pink Friday remix for Nicki.
