The MC is slated to be released from Rikers Island within the early morning hours Thursday, and Mack Maine, the president of Young Money and Wayne's childhood friend, confirmed that a major bash in his honor will go down this Sunday in Miami. The Weezy insider gave MTV News exclusive details about the epic celebration in an interview Wednesday (November 3).
"It's gonna be crazy. We have a private party first and then we going to King of Diamonds after, which is a strip club. It's going to be crazy, it's going to be real elegant, extravagant, we gonna party like when Frank came home, like [the movie] 'King of New York,' " Maine explained. "It should be a lot of beautiful women, just ... beautiful scenery. Just treat him like a king, like the royalty that he is and make him feel like we really missed him and welcome him back to the family, basically."
As the head of the Young Money family, Maine said that Wayne has been sorely missed by his inner circle, who were trained to "stay afloat, and everyone handled their own weight."
