After reuniting most of the Hot Boys at his inaugural 2015 edition, rapper Lil Wayne will bring back his Lil' Weezyana Fest concert this summer. Lil' Weezyana's second annual edition is Saturday, Aug. 27 at Champions Square.

This year, Wayne will perform with 2 Chainz  — the duo collaborated for 2016's ColleGrove, the Atlanta rapper's third album, and they also appear on Chance The Rapper's latest "No Problems." Concert organizers also promise "special guests." At last year's event, in tandem with the 10th anniversary of Hurricane Katrina and the federal floods, Wayne brought out Ms. Tee, Big Freedia, 5th Ward Weebie, Curren$y, Mack Maine, Master P, Mia X and Wayne's Young Money superstar Drake, among many others.

Wayne has reportedly suffered several seizures in recent months, including a "false alarm" in Las Vegas last week.

Tickets go on sale this Friday, July 15 at 10 a.m. via Ticketmaster and Live Nation or the Smoothie King Center box office or by calling (800) 745-3000.
