After release, Weezy is expected to travel to Miami to reunite with his family.
"I think what's important, we want to see family first," said Bryan "Baby" Willams, Cash Money Records CEO, when asked about a rumored Big Apple concert on the day of Wayne's release.
"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."
Lil' Wayne has managed to remain successful while away from the spotlight. His current album debuted at #1 on the Billboard Top 200 albums and his collab with Drake, "Right Above It" is steadily climbing up the top 20 the Billboard "Hot 100" chart.
