Fresh out of prison Lil Wayne is already working hard, releasing new music and appearing at charity events, the latest of which was held in his hometown of New Orleans.

New Orleans Hornet point guard Chris Paul also participated in the Celebrity Bowling Invitational, sponsored by the Professional Bowling Association.

Weezy is a big fan of the sport, and owns four custom-made bowling balls. He was partnered with pro bowler Norm Duke at the event, and faced off against fellow musician Nelly and Reggie Bush.

The event will also air live on ESPN on Super Bowl Sunday. Two months away, but hey, it was for charity.
