Free Weezy? Lil Wayne's prison release delayed, fans wait through the night

lil_wayne_2009.jpg [Update] Lil Wayne has been released! He will now head to Arizona to take care of some paperwork from a 2008 drug charge. He will then spend 36 months on probation.

Rapper Lil Wayne has been in prison for eight months, serving time for criminal possession of a weapon, and now it looks like he'll spend an extra day behind bars. "Weezy" was expected to be released from New York's Rikers Island prison in the early hours of Thursday, Nov. 4, and his die-hard fans began to gather in the prison parking lot shortly after midnight, anticipating his triumphant exit through the prison doors.

Weezy's friend, protege, and Young Money labelmate Drake tweeted, "I just want to thank you all for keeping YM alive for the last 8 months. Between the hours of 1 - 2am...WEEZY IS COMING HOME."

Unfortunately, it looks like they'll be waiting a little bit longer than expected. In a jail parking lot. In the middle of the night. In November. Oh, the things we do for love.
