Lil Wayne is a free man.
He has been released from the Rikers Island jail complex in New York after serving eight months for his involvement in a gun case, it was announced Thursday.
His family and friends are planning a welcome home bash this weekend in Miami.
Lil Wayne (real name: Dwayne Carter Jr.) pleaded guilty in October 2009 to attempted weapon possession, admitting he'd had a loaded, semiautomatic .40-caliber gun on his bus after a Manhattan concert.
"I was never scared, worried nor bothered by the situation" behind bars, he said Tuesday through Weezythanxyou.com, which he set up to give fans a glimpse of his life in jail.
During his time behind bars, the rapper dropped his latest album, "I Am Not a Human Being," which hit No. 1 on the Billboard 200 chart last month.
