Lil Wayne Tour Dates
Lil Wayne was born Dwayne Michael Carter Jr. on 27 September 1982 and began his rapping career at the tender age of nine with Cash Money Records. He became a part of a group called Hot Boys in 1997 that consisted of Turk, Juvenile and B.G. and together they found fame with the release of their album Guerrilla Warfare. But Lil Wayne also released a solo album in 1999, his debut, Tha Block is Hot, which went platinum and gave him instant stardom as an artist. His popularity went on to grow, and now the dates of his highly anticipated tour have been released.
The albums Lights Out and 500 Degreez were not great successes for Lil Wayne, but he redeemed himself in 2004 with Tha Carter. It was followed by Tha Carter II in 2005 and Tha Carter III in 2008. He tried his hand at rock in 2010, releasing Rebirth. While serving an eight month prison sentence, he released I Am Not a Human Being in the September of that year. The album featured acts such as Lil Twist, Nicki Minaj and Drake.
His tour, called I Am Music II, will kick off on 18 March 2011 at the HSBC Arena in Buffalo, New York. Lil Wayne will be accompanied on tour by Travis Baker, Nicki Minaj and Rick Ross.
