Young Money CEO Mack Maine has revealed Lil Wayne will be heading to court a few days following his release from Rikers Island next month.
Maine also provided details on what Wayne will come home to upon his November 4th release.
“No, no tour bus. It’s like picking up a king. We gonna make sure everything is straight; jets and luxury cars, red carpet and probably beautiful women and just make sure that he’s [treated like] straight royalty. We ain’t gonna have the whole family up. The bosses are gonna be there and the immediate family. We gonna do it how we do it from there. Straight from there we’ll probably shoot to Miami, or we might go straight to Arizona. He has court on the 5th. We’ll go to court and then we’ll probably be shooting to the next city on the 7th, which is that Sunday.” (XXL Mag)
In June, Wayne received three years probation for an Arizona drug possession case.
Lil Wayne, already serving one year in a New York jail for a gun-related crime, was sentenced on Wednesday to three years probation in Arizona on a drug possession charge. Under the deal, the 30-year-old Grammy winner pleaded guilty to one count of possession of a dangerous drug. Three other drug and weapons charges were dismissed. Wayne appeared in court via a video hookup from New York, where he has been jailed since March after pleading guilty to attempted criminal possession of a weapon. James Tilson, Carter’s Arizona attorney, said he was pleased with the court’s action. “We’re quite glad that we were able to wrap everything up,” Tilson told Reuters. “It’s a favorable plea agreement that will allow Mr. Carter to pursue his career.” (ABC News)
In early October, Maine said Wayne would not have a “Welcome Home Weezy” concert take place upon his release from jail on November 4th.
“It’s not gonna be a concert, he’s gonna do a party,” Mack Maine confirmed in an interview. “We wanted to do a concert, but we just decided to do a party. We might do a family party. We just gonna celebrate him coming home and just party-party and work- work. Just wild out and celebrate, fly to Miami, fly to where we live. Of course, he gotta make sure he sees his immediate family, his kids and stuff. Just basically have a good time.” (VIBE)
Cash Money Records co-founder Baby also said the concert would possibly not occur.
“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. 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.” (MTV)
