Lil Wayne talked shit on The Heat? (payback's a bitch) Otherwise, fuck it, they're still #winning. (Well, except for last night.) But this is America, land of free speech, and he' s still one of the most popular rappers in the world, even if he fell asleep at the club and didn't rock the mic. That's why thousands of tourists from New York, Toronto, Minneapolis, Milwaukee, Chicago, and everywhere else packed Mansion on Memorial Day for his party with Birdman celebrating GTV Vodka.

Meek Mill's "Levels To This Shit" rang out all night, and Scott Storch, Busta Rhymes, and the best showgirls in nightlife partied hard as a champagne pop while clear liquor flooded Washington Avenue. Here's what it looked like.

If they started partying Thursday afternoon ... By the time Monday hit, Memorial Day weekend visitors might have been seeing like this when they got inside the club.

But the amazingly acrobatic red tape-wearing dancing girls were even better without stutter vision. Throughout the night, they hung from cubes, rings, danced on platforms, and gyrated on cargo net, all with smiles on their faces and fluid movements with the motion of the ocean.

And not that it was a competition ... But damn, some of the ladies in the audience were just as tantalizing.

So the "naughty girls" neon at the entrance was both fitting and prescient.

These girls from Minnesota were having a blast on South Beach for urban beach week.

The crowd was thick and ready to let loose.

Meek Mill set the morning off right around 2 in the morning, stunting with a stage full of bottles, a spotlight, and his newest cut, "Levels," booming through the speakers.

This built a heavy momentum rolling into the 3 o'clock hour when the GT Vodka bottles caught fire, the drummers came out and the confetti bomb and pressured gas exploded.

On the other side of the room, the King Kong Moet bottle in the cage and its little cousins marched up to a section full of ballers.

Around 4:20, not long after a brief mic check by Meek, and no performance by anyone else, the crowd began to trickle out.

Some people stuck around till the very end.
