Lil Wayne Announces Tory Lanez & NBA YoungBoy As Lil Weezyana Fest Guests
Lil Wayne has announced the special guests for his upcoming fourth annual Lil Weezyana festival. Brampton's Tory Lanez and Baton Rouge's YoungBoy Never Broke Again will serve as the openers to the Weezy-headlined event, as shared in an Instagram post Thursday. Wayne has also promised "surprise guests" at the show.
This will be NBA YoungBoy's second appearance at a Lil Weezyana fest. He also performed at the 2017 event, which counted Gucci Mane, Rich The Kid, and Kodie Shane among the artists on the bill.
The 2018 fest will celebrate the tenth anniversary of Lil Wayne's landmark album Tha Carter III, which officially turned 10 in June. Earlier this year, Lil Wayne finally earned himself the right to release his long-awaited Carter V project, which has been held hostage throughout years of a legal battle with Cash Money. It has been speculated that the album could be shared in the near future. Whether or not Lil Weezyana fest will play into that at all remains to be seen.
The fest is set to take place August 25th in Champion Square. In the past, the event has streamed live exclusively on Tidal. Check out the new poster above.
