Lil Wayne has been released from jail.

The 'Lollipop' rapper completed his eight month sentence for attempted weapon possession today (04.11.10) and was released from New York's Riker's Island jail. He is now expected to fly to Miami, Florida, where he lives, to celebrate.

Wayne - real name Dwayne Carter - was sentenced to a year in prison in prison in March after a gun was found on his tour bus in 2007, with the sentence reduced for good behaviour.

Mack Maine, president of Wayne's Young Money record label, said he is planning a party, titled 'Welcome Home, Weezy' - after another of his aliases - in a strip club to mark the occasion.

Mack said the rapper's friends will: "Treat him like a king, like the royalty that he is and make him feel like we really missed him and welcome him back to the family, basically."

The 28-year-old had spent the last part of his sentence in solitary confinement after an MP3 player - a banned item in the jail - was found in his cell.

On Tuesday (02.11.10) Wayne corresponded with fans for the last time before being released, writing: "I vow to continue to be me. I don't have to change for no one but God.

"I will be the same Martian I was when I left, just better."

Before he lands home, however, the prolific artist may already have started recording new songs, as his record label were reportedly trying to find a jet with an in-built studio to fly Wayne home in.

Wayne will now be under a 36-month period of probation, which will be unsupervised and is to be transferred from New York to Florida.
