See the full Lil Wayne Welcome Home Party slideshow.

It had been eight months since Weezy'd seen the streets. So he wasn't gonna waste his first weekend of freedom.

On Friday, the Young Money Cash Money prince made a straight shot for New Orleans to see the Hornets vs. King James, D-Wade, and Bosh. Then Saturday, he visited Vegas and made a cameo at the closing show on Drake's Light Dreams and Nightmares tour.

And last night, after a cross-country flight, Lil Wayne and a crew of rap royalty -- including Nicki Minaj, Drake, Birdman, DJ Khaled, Fat Joe, Busta Rhymes, and more -- invaded downtown's Alfred I. Dupont Building.
