Lil Wayne Thanks Fans, Speaks On Las Vegas Performance & Last 8 Months In Jail

Lil Wayne is a man of many words when it comes to his rhymes, but the superstar MC was short and to the point when describing how he’s moving on past his experience in prison the past eight months.

“I forgot about yesterday,” Wayne told MTV News exclusively on the red carpet of his “Welcome Home Tunechi” party in downtown Miami on Sunday night (November 7).

The night before, on Saturday, Wayne surprised fans and Drake by appearing on stage next to his protege during Drake’s last tour stop in Las Vegas for his Light Dreams and Nightmares jaunt.

“It’s unexplainable,” Wayne said of returning to the stage. “Words can’t explain. I’m good with words and I can’t explain.”

“I just wanna thank everybody,” he said. “Not only MTV fans, but the fans across the whole world. Most of all, my family. I couldn’t do it without them and I would never do it without them.”

Sway speaks to Lil Wayne and Birdman on the red carpet of Wayne‘s “Welcome Home Tunechi” party last night. Weezy thanks his fans and family, speaks on his performance with Drake in Las Vegas, says he has already “forgot about yesterday” when asked about moving on from his last 8 months behind bars, and Birdman speaks on their next business plans. After the jump, you can also watch another video of Tune thanking his fans for all our support.

Looks Like Lil Wayne Will Be Going To Prison (Pleads Guilty)

Lil Wayne Pleads Guilty

Rapper Lil Wayne pleaded guilty to attempted weapons possession charges today (October 22).

As reported earlier, the rapper is expected to receive a maximum sentence of one year in jail, although he is expected to serve around eight months in prison for the offense.

The rapper had previously pleaded not guilty to the charges, but changed the plea to avoid a trial that was due to start January 20 and could have resulted in at least 3 ½ years in prison.

The guilty plea stems from an incident in New York in 2007, after police found a .40 caliber handgun during a search of his tour bus.

Originally, lawyers for Wayne planned to contest the charges.

Yesterday (October 21), the plea was entered after Wayne’s DNA evidence was allegedly found on the weapon and deemed admissible by a judge.

The DNA evidence found was reportedly small, and Wayne’s lawyers initially sparred with the prosecution over whether the DNA profiling technique used was scientifically acceptable.

Before the trial, Lil Wayne’s manager had publicly taken responsibility for the gun on the rapper’s VH1 special.

Lil Wayne, 27, also faces a trial in Arizona for felony drug possession and weapons charges, after a 2008 arrest during a routine stop at a U.S. Border Patrol checkpoint.

Via AHH and this is terrible news 🙁 He will probably have to cut his dreads, and you can view a video below of Lil Wayne turning up to court earlier:
