Lil Wayne reconnected with some familiar faces over the weekend when he hosted a McMain High School reunion in New Orleans, Louisiana.
A series of photos from the Class of 2000 reunion showed Weezy looking happier than ever as he reunited with some of his classmates and shared a few laughs with old friends throughout the night.
The Young Money icon was already famous as a high school student when he released his debut album, Tha Block is hotthrough Cash Money Records in 1999 when he was just 17 years old.
Rocking a black adidas sweatshirt, Wayne enjoyed a night of bowling at Fulton Alley with his signature double cup in hand.
“Big thanks to @liltunechi and @youngmoney for letting me provide sound for Wayne’s High School Reunion,” DJ Meel wrote on Instagram after serving as DJ for the high school reunion.
Lil Wayne’s high school reunion served as a warm-up for him Lil Weezyana Partywhich went down in Champions Square in New Orleans on Saturday night (October 29).
The festival featured performances from the likes of Rick Ross, Cam’ron and Quavo and Takeoff, as well as a headlining set from Weezy himself, who brought out Drake as a special guest.
“Can you please make some noise for this foreigner? Let’s show him a good time in America,” Wayne said before Sprinkled hit the stage to a roar from the crowd.
The Young Money duo performed collaborations like “The Motto” and “She Will” before Drizzy delved into his own catalog for “In My Feelings,” “God’s Plan,” “Nonstop, “Knife Talk” and more.
However, the OVO hitmaker wasn’t too happy that Wayne didn’t ask him to sing the hook on his Carter III press “Mrs. Officer,” which he apparently used to do in his early career.
“I wanna say one more damn thing because I got a little thrown off tonight,” Drake told the crowd as Wayne looked on. “Because you know, the day before I was Drake, I was off Aubrey Degrassiright?
“And I used to stand on the side stage and when ‘Mrs. Officer’ came on, Lil Wayne used to call me on stage to sing the Bobby part and he used to call me Jimmy Valentino. I feel like I should have sang ‘Mrs. Officer’ tonight, I’m just saying.”
Drake continued to sing the chorus of “Mrs. Officer” while encouraging fans in the crowd to sing along with him.
“It’s like the old days,” he commented before leaving the stage. “New Orleans, I love you. Lil Wayne, thank you my brother. I don’t even know what else to say to you. I love you so much, man. I appreciate you.”
