As we posted a few days ago that Lil Wayne is now a free man, well just a few hours after his release from Rikers, Wayne reconnected with his fans online.
DJ Scoob was one of the first to snap the first pics of Wayne leaving the facility (shown above) and than posted another photo (shown below) of him smoking a cigar and drinking a glass of what appears to be cognac while staring at a laptop screen.
He tweeted the following…
“aaaaaaahhhhhhmmmmm baaaaakkkkkkkkkk,” tweeted @LilTunechi.
An attorney for Lil Wayne says he’ll travel to Arizona within 72 of his release and fill out documentation to start his 36-month probation term for a separate drug paraphernalia case.
He is scheduled to have a “welcome-back” party in Miami this weekend.
Birdman also revealed on Big Boy’s Morning Show all of Lil Wayne’s plans over the past few days since his release. He gave the run down plans for Wayne’s first day home.
“We in the Maybachs going to the hotel for a minute to see the kids then we on the jet after that. Then we gotta go to Arizona for a minute to check in cause he got a little paperwork out there. After that we gone come to L.A. for a minute then to Miami for this party.”
According to MTV News…
Just a day after his release from prison, Lil Wayne is staying on the move. The rapper touched down in Arizona on Friday (November 5) after jetting from New York hours before for a court appearance. The MC’s motorcade was spotted in Yuma Friday afternoon, where Wayne is expected to sign paperwork in connection with a two-year-old drug arrest.
The superstar lyricist was chauffeured in a Black Ford Excursion as part of a six-car caravan. The vehicles circled the Arizona Superior Court in Yuma County around 1:10 p.m. local time, where several bystanders awaited a glimpse of the MC in 84-degree heat. However, Wayne did not enter the courthouse, and finished his legal business blocks away at the Yuma County Adult Probation center, leaving around 1:45 p.m.
Wayne was picked up on January 22, 2008, at a U.S. Border Patrol checkpoint where officials claimed Ecstasy, cocaine and a handgun was found on the MC’s tour bus. Weezy copped a plea deal during his eight-month Rikers bid for weapons charges for the Arizona case, and was handed a sentence of community service and three years of unsupervised probation. Wayne was able to skirt additional prison time through the deal and pleaded guilty to one count of possession of a dangerous drug in exchange for the dismissal of three other drug and weapons charges.
“Even though it’s treated as a felony while he’s on probation, if he completes his probation without any violations, the offense will be redesignated as a misdemeanor,” Wayne’s Arizona attorney, James Tilson, told MTV News on Tuesday. The rest of Weezy’s schedule hasn’t been pinned down but the members of the newly freed MC’s camp have hinted he has a jet-setting weekend ahead. Drake has teased a possible Weezy appearance at the final stop of the Toronto lyricist’s Light Dreams and Nightmares Tour in Las Vegas. In addition, Wayne’s ex-wife, Antonia “Toya” Carter, told MTV News an intimate family gathering is in the works in Miami, and Young Money label chief, Mack Maine, gave details of the MC’s blowout bash Sunday night in the Florida city.
