Lil Wayne threw his annual homecoming show in New Orleans, La. for Lil Weezyana Festival at Champions Square on Saturday, where he lead the crowd in a "Black Lives Matter" chant. 

"We are black America," he said. "Black lives matter!" The rapper saluted the activist movement that has campaigned for social change, especially following the deaths of Trayvon Martin, Mike Brown, Eric Garner among other victims in police-related incidents.

Before he exited the stage, Tunechi also had a special message for Cash Money Records. "Before I get out this motherf--ker, I want to say three more important words: f--k Cash Money," said Wayne. He pulled a similar feat in May during a performance in Denver, Co. where he said, "F--k the bullshit. F--k Cash Money," a nod to his ongoing beef with the Birdman-helmed label; Weezy is embroiled in a $51 million lawsuit with the label.

This year's Lil Weezyana show included performances with Weezy's ColleGrove partner 2 Chainz, Yo Gotti, Migos, Mystikal and a surprise appearance from Chris Brown.
