*New Orleans native Lil’ Wayne, released from Rikers Island earlier this month after serving an eight month sentence, made a surprise appearance today at the Q93/State Farm Bayou Classic Fan Festival on Saturday (11-27-10).

The festival, held annually at Champions Square outside the Louisiana Superdome, is in connection with the State Farm Bayou Classic football game between the Grambling State University Tigers and the Southern University Jaguars.

Wayne surprised those in attendance when he jumped on stage as a surprise guest of the Young Money performance. He performed “Bedrock” with Tyga, Lil Twist, Lil Chuckie, and Lloyd and ad-libbed on stage with Tyga for his verses in Chris Brown’s smash hit, “Deuces.”

He thanked New Orleans for the love they’ve shown him.

Arranged by Q93 (WQUE-FM), New Orleans #1 Hip Hop and R&B Station, the appearance marks Lil’ Wayne’s first public performance in New Orleans since returning from prison, and his first-ever appearance at the State Farm Bayou Classic.
