As tweeted, ‘RapFix Live’ host Sway Calloway spoke to Young Money’s Mack Maine on Wednesday (November 3). Between juggling calls from Wayne’s immediate family and the Birdman himself, Mack shared his expectations for the first 72 hours of Lil Wayne‘s release from prison. And like any good rap scenario, Lil Tunechi is headed straight to the land of debauchery—the strip club.
“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.”
Lil Wayne will be returning home following an eight month sentence at New York’s Rikers Island facility, which has also housed MCs Shyne, Foxy Brown and Remy Ma in the past.
“Everybody’s just happy that he’s coming home,” he said. “It’s been a rough eight months, period, and he’s the leader of the tribe.”
The party follows Drake’s Light Dreams and Nightmares Tour stop Saturday in Las Vegas, a show at which both Maine and Drizzy have hinted Wayne may make a surprise appearance.
“I would just advise you to book a ticket out there. If you can get tickets to that show on the 6th, I would strongly advise it,” Drizzy told MTV News.
