Lil Wayne Celebrates Homecoming at Hornets Game

After making a stop in Yuma, Arizona, for a court appearance stemming from his 2008 arrest on drug and weapon-possession charges, Lil Wayne flew back to his hometown of New Orleans where he kicked it courtside at the Hornets vs. Heat basketball game on Friday (Nov. 5).

A long-haired Weezy sported a Cincinnati Reds fitted, dark shades, white tee, and black Converse while tapping on his iPhone 4. His CMYMB crew—Birdman, Mack Maine, and manager Cortez Bryant—shared laughs and cheered as his home team claimed victory over Miami at the New Orleans Arena.

There are whispers that the recently released rapper will appear onstage at Drake’s tour finale tonight at The Joint inside the Hard Rock Hotel in Las Vegas. The homecoming party continues on Sunday at King of Diamonds strip club in Miami where he already has 48 bottles of champagne on ice at $700 a pop.
