Last night, Weezy took over the comparatively large space at the Austin Music Hall for a packed solo show, his first at the annual music showcase in the Lone Star state.

The Young Money head honcho was in high spirits, according to the Associated Press, telling the crowd at one point "I Believe I'm God" and offering to take home all the women in the audience who weren't happy with their dates.
