Lil Wayne -- Escape from New York

3/4/2010 4:00 AM PST
Lil Wayne scored an extra weekend of freedom before reporting to jail -- and he's not sticking around NYC on his borrowed time.

We got Weezy leaving his New York hotel yesterday with his entourage, baby mama Nivea and their three-month-old son, Neal.

The fam took off for New Jersey's Teterboro airport -- destination unknown -- but, pending another ridiculous stroke of luck, he'll be back Monday for sentencing.
