Mtv To 'unplug' Lil Wayne
Lil Wayne will follow in the footsteps of the likes of Lauryn Hill, Alicia Keys, Jay-Z, LL Cool J and Mariah Carey, when he takes to the MTV stage to perform a special acoustic set for 'Lil Wayne: Unplugged'...
Amy Doyle of MTV expressed her delight that the Young Money boss had agreed to perform on the renowned 'Unplugged' stage and that his performance will appeal to fans of various music genres…
"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," said Doyle in a statement.
Doyle added that Weezy will make history when he gets the 'Unplugged' treatment: "Lil Wayne’s skills, influence, and catalogue are a powerful addition to the legacy of artists who have rocked the 'Unplugged' stage."
Lil Wayne will perform all of his well-known hits from his extensive back catalogue and there may also be a surprise or two in store, as Weezy’s 9th studio album, 'Tha Carter IV', is currently in the final stages of production and the chances are that he will use the 'Unplugged' stage to showcase a couple of tracks from the album.
'Lil Wayne: Unplugged' will premiere in the US on MTV and MTV2 on June 12 and will also be broadcast on MTV.com.
