When steps out of jail, he is going to be greeted by his fans in a homecoming concert. "November 5, the Welcome Home Weezy concert," confirmed in a Ustream chat. "That's gonna be crazy." Knowing that his announcement is a big news for Weezy fans, he said with smiles, "I told you I got you. I would never just Ustream and talk about nothing."

Prior to revealing plan for the homecoming gig, the rapper talked about his next tour and his tourmates wish list. "You know we was trying to get Wiz [Khalifa] on the tour," he shared. "Hopefully, the Light Dreams [and] Nightmares Tour, depending on what city we go to, it'll be , and . That's what I'm hoping. I don't know, maybe I spoke too soon."

While Drake urged Khalifa, who is named this year's MTV Hottest Breakthrough MC, to call him if by any chances he learned about the offer, Khalifa himself told XXL magazine that he is not interested to join the Canadian rapper's tour entourage.

"No disrespect to [Drake] or anybody else who might wanna see me do some more collaborative things, but to keep building and keep my brand as strong as what it is, I gotta keep focusing on what it is," he explained. "This is my first tour that I got coming up, the Waken Baken Tour. I gotta at least kick that off and make that what it is so we can do 10 more."

He doesn't rule out possibility of hitting the stage together with Drake though. "We can do like some special dates or some surprise guest-type thing," he said. But, his main focus now is to headline his own tour and score big earning like Drake as he stated, "I was looking on the Internet and [saw] that [Drake] made $10 million this year. So maybe when I make $10 million, then we can tour."
