The hip-hop universe was primed and ready to receive Lil Wayne back into its bosom early this morning (November 4), but due to a miscalculation at Rikers Island (where Weezy has been an inmate since March), he will have to spend at least one more night behind bars. “His time was miscalculated,” a Rikers officer explained. “He owes one day of ’good time,’ so it’s gonna be another night.”
Both Drake and Young Money president Mack Maine have hinted that Weezy would be appearing at the Las Vegas stop on Drake’s Light Dreams and Nightmares tour this Saturday, November 6. Following that, Maine also told MTV News that Weezy will be feted in Miami this Sunday, November 7.
