Lil Wayne Tour News and Updates
Dwayne Michael Carter Jr., better known by his stage name Lil Wayne (Lil Tunechi anyone?)
, is one of the hottest and most prolific modern hip-hop artists of our time. Hailing from the notorious Hollygrove area of New Orleans, this music mogul first joined Cash Money Records at the tender age of fourteen, making waves as a hardcore raping tween from the group Hot Boys. Lil Wayne eventually broke out in the mid-2000s via his mastery of mix tapes to eventually become a multi-million selling rapper. Fast forward to 2012, and Carter is the “best rapper alive” having broken Elvis Presley’s Billboard record for most Hot 100 chart appearances, racking up 109 hit songs.
Lil Wayne is famous not only known for his game-changing release of “Tha Carter II,” but also for his furious work ethic. He’s worked with everyone from Destiny’s Child to Cassie, T-Pain, Robin Thicke, Weezer, Chris Brown and Kid Rock. Songs like “Make It Rain,” “Duffle Bag Boy,” “Let it Rock,” “A Milli,” “Lollipop” and more have rendered him one of the most recognizable celebrities and music mainstays worldwide. After calling himself the greatest rapper alive, the sentiment became increasingly hard to argue, as Lil Wayne’s lauded effort “Tha Carter III” was bestowed a Grammy Award for Best Rap Album, forever etching his name into the hip-hop history books.
Carter introduced Young Money labelmates and helped spawn the careers of Nicki Minaj and Drake, who recently appeared on Carter’s newest track “Believe Me.” Now fans are in for the ultimate YMCMB experience, where you’ll get to hear “HYFR,” “Miss Me” “Forever” and “Love Me” by the rappers in person! Lil Wayne tickets are now available for his joint tour with Drake, when the duo visits 31 cities this summer for the “Lil Wayne vs. Drake Tour.” Score Lil Wayne tickets and see one of the hottest names in the game hit up a stage near you.
