Lil Wayne returned home with a special show for his New Orleans' fans. The rapper, currently headlining the I Am Music tour, surprised his audience by bringing out Drake to perform on "Miss You" and "Forever."

During the show, Drake thanked the city of New Orleans for being the first audience to really embrace his music. "I wanna let you know that New Orleans was truly the birthplace of my career. Y'all were the first people to f*** with my music, and I recognize that," said the Toronto-native.

Though Drake isn't an official part of the I Am Music tour, having him on hand in New Orleans completed the Young Money roster. Jae Millz, Gudda Gudda, Mack Maine, Lil Chuckee, Lil Twist and of course Nicki (who has her own set) came out for their parts in either "Bedrock" or "Every Girl."

But Wayne wasn't the only one to bring out a special guest. For Nicki Minaj's New Orleans performance, the rapper gave a lap dance to Chris Paul of the Charlotte Hornets. In other cities, Nicki usually gives the dance to Lil Wayne.
