Lil Wayne at Voodoo Fest in 2008.
has had a busy week.
The Hollygrove-raised rapper announced he will host the Lil' Weezyana Festival at 7 p.m. Friday, Aug. 28 at Champions Square. Wayne announced the event (sponsored by Morris "One Call, That's All" Bart) this afternoon on Q93-FM during an in-depth interview with DJ Wild Wayne.
Over the weekend, Wayne released the mixtape FWA
via Tidal, the streaming music service launched by Jay Z earlier this year. And though he's currently embroiled in a lawsuit with Cash Money Records for holding his Tha Carter IV
album, Wayne is reuniting Cash Money's Hot Boys
, the rap supergroup featuring Wayne, Juvenile, B.G.
and responsible for hits like "We on Fire" and "I Need a Hot Girl." B.G., however, remains in a federal prison in Pennsylvania following a 14-year sentence for gun and obstruction charges
. But Cash Money mastermind Mannie Fresh
will be there, among others who are yet to be announced.
Tickets go on sale via Ticketmaster
