Lil Wayne Welcome Home Concert Canceled?
As his release date draws near, Lil Wayne may forgo the stage to spend time with family and friends instead. According to Brian "Birdman" Williams, Weezy's post-jail concert is looking like it might not go down. "We still haven't really made up our mind," Birdman told MTV News. "I think what's important, we want to see family first. If the concert happens, it happens. But right now, we just want to come home and see our family and party, I think."
Birdman went on to state that throwing a party in Wayne's honor may be a better option. "That's what we gonna do: just come to Miami, and just party for a minute. Work and party and play. Have the whole team out here, and we gonna do it up. Miami is gonna be Weezy world, Weezy weekend." Fellow Young Money member Drake originally announced the news of a welcome home concert which was said to correspond with the release of Wayne's upcoming 'Tha Carter IV' album.
The 28-year-old rapper has been in incarcerated at New York's Rikers Island since March after pleading guilty to attempted criminal possession of a weapon. Being locked up has done little to stifle Weezy's connection to the outside world. The father of four blogs, sends updates to fans through his Young Money family, and even released the EP 'I Am Not a Human Being,' on his birthday, September 27. Wayne is due to be released November 4.
