Lil Wayne Enlists Tory Lanez and YoungBoy Never Broke Again as Special Guests for 2018 Lil Weezyana Fest
And just like that, Lil Wayne's 2018 Lil Weezyana Fest is right around the corner, and it's going to have a pretty solid lineup. On Thursday afternoon (Aug. 16), Weezy revealed that Tory Lanez and YoungBoy Never Broke Again will be taking the stage at this year's iteration of the living rap legend's typically star-studded concert.
Using an Instagram post to announce the addition of Lanez and YoungBoy, Weezy also teased a few surprises, "AND surprise guests!! This will be one to remember, don't miss out.....Get Your Tikkets NOW!!" Tunechi wrote in the caption for the post, which includes a poster for this year's Lil Weezyana Fest.
This year's edition of the Lil Weezyana Fest will serve as a tribute to Weezy's epic sixth studio album, Tha Carter III. We don't know too much more information about other performers, but the ones we do know of make plenty of sense for this platform.
On one hand, Lanez is known for rocking crowds with his electric showmanship and dynamic talent. On the other, we've got YoungBoy, who actually delivered an epic interpolation of Weezy's 1999 single, "Tha Block Is Hot," earlier this year ("Diamond Teeth Samurai"). Fans should be happy.
The 2018 Lil Weezyana Fest will be taking place at New Orleans' Champions Square on Aug. 25. You can cop tickets at Live Nation.
