Lil Wayne held the Lil Weezyana Fest yesterday (August 29) in his hometown of New Orleans with proceeds going to Tha Carter Fund. He performed “A Milli,” “Steady Mobbin’,” “Georgia Bush,” “Go DJ” and other tracks from his 10-plus-year solo career, Lil Wayne HQ reports.
There was a Hot Boys reunion, as promised. Wayne brought out Juvenile, Turk and Mannie Fresh to perform “Bling Bling,” “I Need a Hot Girl” and Juvenile’s “Back That Azz Up.” B.G.’s mother was in attendance to represent her son who is currently serving a 14 year prison sentence.
Weezy also held a Sqad Up reunion and brought out Gudda Gudda, Dizzy, Kidd Kidd and Fee Banks to perform a few songs.
The event was live-streamed on TIDAL except for Drake’s set because of his contract with Apple. PageSix reports that Apple threatened a $20 million lawsuit if the rival streaming service aired Drake’s performance.
The Times-Picayune says the two-hour event concluded in a fireworks show and brass bands signature to the area.
