Lil Wayne To Perform On MTV Unplugged

MTV's signature acoustic series, "Unplugged" returns with Lil Wayne. Does this mean Wayne is breaking out his electric guitar again?

MTV’s “Unplugged” series has seen performances Hip Hop icons such as De La Soul, LL Cool J, Lauryn Hill and Jay-Z with The Roots. Hill and Jay-Z leveraged their performances into retail albums. When the series resumes on June 12, Lil Wayne will attempt to join the ranks during his featured performance.

“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,” MTV's EVP of Music and Talent, Amy Doyle said via released statement. “Lil Wayne’s skills, influence, and catalog are a powerful addition to the legacy of artists who have rocked the ‘Unplugged’ stage.”

Wayne has been performing with a live band during his “I Am Still Music” tour. But those who either weren’t able to attend or couldn’t afford a ticket will have the chance to catch an acoustic performance by Cash Money’s headliner, as the Lil Wayne edition of “Unplugged” will air across all MTV television platforms as well as MTV.com.

    That live band BS is just another page from Jigga's playbook. Let the REAL hip hop heads who own jazz records tour with bands.

    If MTV Unplugged is an acoustic series why are electric guitars allowed?

    Lil Wayne [Verse 3] I got shot when i was 12, Lost my pop when i was 14 Shot again at 20 Will i shake these old dreams We already have the holy water on my face And 3 blood drops dried on the side of my eyes Why we gotta kill our own kind when we rise? Got me looking down the ladder now when i climb Pulling up on my nephews And they don't wanna drive they wanna learn how to work the tool And who am I not to do the duty? Just think if pops advice get sent from black ink And that stinks, but homie that's real And in the hood even steaks smell bad on the grill I remember when you was a hustler you was a winner Now that's like raking up leaves in the winter And that ain't even cool to miss a few summers Shyt Ill take a bite out the onion like Fuck! (I,I,I, don't want you to see me cry) And wont cry

    Does whoever wrote this know what acoustic means? Lol Anyway I hope Lil Wayne dies before he can perform on Unplugged. I'd rather hear babies dying than Lil Wayne singing or rapping.
