Lil Wayne celebrated New Year's Eve in Chicago alongside the Dipset crew but fans around the globe who couldn't make it to the Midwest had a chance to see him on their TV screens in a pre-taped special. The tattooed rhymer spit choice lines during 'NBC's New Year's Eve with Carson Daly.'

Nicki Minaj welcomed the Young Money head honcho to the stage after her performance, dubbing her boss "the undisputed best rapper alive." Wayne, dressed comfortably in a fur-trimmed leather coat and skinny jeans, walked onto the platform, rocking out to the Bangladesh-produced '6 Foot 7 Foot' with a band of guitar players and a drummer behind him.

The song's featured guest, Young Money's newest signee Cory Gunz, came from stage right seconds before his verse kicked in. Weezy F. Baby jumped into the air as the Bronx native sped through his rhymes. The duo ended the performance by encouraging their fans to "put your hands up."
