Lil Wayne is back! The New Orleans-bred rapper returned to the stage Saturday night for the first time since his release from prison.
Weezy joined his protégé Drake in Las Vegas for the final show of Drake's "Light Dreams and Nightmares Tour."

Wayne also told fans how happy he is to be out of prison: "I'm back, It feels good to be back.... I'm fresh home from my vacation and ain't nothing, nothing, nothing like home."
