Lil Wayne Gets Asked To The Prom

Lil Wayne made a visit to his old high school in New Orleans, and to his surprise, he was asked to the prom! Sadly for the girl, he'll be out of the country then. He visited with the kids and spoke to them about being successful in life.

"Coming back to speak to them is super-important. It was my school. I went to that school. I attended that school. It shows them somebody from there made it. It makes them feel like you can do it. That right there was so important. I see it in their eyes, like, 'We can do something.' Not just doing what I'm doing, but, 'We can be successful.'"

Wayne also showed his support through his involvement with a restoration project in Harrell Park, where he played football as a kid. He remembers it as a meeting place where the two 'hoods of Pigeon Town and Hollygrove would meet up, socialize and sometimes rumble.' After Hurricane Katrina, FEMA gutted the park to make room for trailers. Weezy's plans include putting up the funds for indoor basketball courts and indoor pools. He's a Brad Pitt in the making!
