Drake, Khaled, & Rozay

After days, weeks, and months of Lil Wayne apologizing for the delay of his much anticipated release of ‘The Carter IV‘ (the followup to the critically acclaimed ‘The Carter III‘) the wait is finally over. While everyone else in the world is already pre-registering for Beyonce’s baby gifts, other celebs hit up the release party for Weezy’s latest album. Although Wayne himself was noticeably absent from the red carpet, some of the biggest names in Hip Hop arrived to show their support for the hottest rapper alive right now. Click read more to see which stars accepted Weezy’s late pass!

Nicki Minaj

While Drake seemed to be having a gray day wearing a neutral plain t-shirt with black denim, his Young Money counterpart Nicki Minaj appeared to have been still strolling through Rainbow Bright’s closet. Although this look is a far sober cry from what she usually wears and huge tone down from her appearance at the 2011 MTV VMAs, she still doing a bit too much with the candy colored wigs, bright body hugging pink dress, and graphic cartoonish leggings. At this point, the most shocking thing she could do next is make an appearance looking like an everyday citizen.

Christina Milian

One of the forgotten members of the Young Money click, Shanell, decided to let her inner goth chick free by rocking some sort of sheer black, voluminous kaftan-ish jumpsuit with over-sized crucifix, signature nose-to-ear chain, and spiked pumps. We’re not sure what she was going for, but the outfit is certainly a head turner which we’re sure somehow works in her favor. Meanwhile, Ciara flashed her ass-less backs to the cameras in what could best be describes as trailer park princess chic. A see-through tank top, unflattering denim cut offs, and sky-high platform pumps completed her look. As of late, we haven’t really been impressed with CiCi; and if she keeps this up we probably never will. Thankfully, there was our sweatheart of the moment Christina Milian to add a little vamped up glam to the event. The hair, makeup, and accessories worked all in unison with her leopard, curve clinging dress and suede peep-toe pumps! Great job!
