It had been eight months since Weezy'd seen the streets. So he wasn't gonna waste his first weekend of freedom.

On Friday, the Young Money Cash Money prince made a straight shot for New Orleans to see the Hornets vs. King James, D-Wade, and Bosh. Then Saturday, he visited Vegas and made a cameo at the closing show on Drake's Light Dreams and Nightmares tour.

And last night, after a cross-country flight, Lil Wayne and a crew of rap royalty -- including Nicki Minaj, Drake, Birdman, DJ Khaled, Fat Joe, Busta Rhymes, and more -- invaded downtown's Alfred I. Dupont Building.

See the cut for Crossfade's exclusive red-carpet photos.
