Lil Wayne For MTV Unplugged Session
The Young Money rapper's gig will air Stateside on 12th June...
With over ten million records sold, critical acclaim and adoration from the streets, Wayne, who has blurred the boundaries of rap, rock and pop, seemed like the perfect choice for the next instalment in MTV's groundbreaking series.
Amy Doyle, MTV's EVP of Music and Talent, said in a statement: "Lil Wayne is an amazing choice for Unplugged as he is at hip-hop's forefront — leading a new generation of artists whose appeal spans across music genres and playlists,"
She added: "Lil Wayne's skills, influence, and catalog are a powerful addition to the legacy of artists who have rocked the Unplugged stage."
MTV's Unplugged concert series first debuted in 1989 and spotlighted artists like Eric Clapton, Nirvana, Mariah Carey, R.E.M., Jay-Z and Bob Dylan. Now, Lil Wayne will join the ranks of music's biggest and most iconic stars.
We can't wait to see Weezy in action…
