Most of the music world was focused on the 2018 Grammy Awards this past weekend, but Lil Wayne had other plans. Weezy was out in Las Vegas performing at the 2018 AVN Awards, commonly referred to as the “Oscars of porn,” on Saturday (January 27).
Wayne performed a 16-minute set for the crowd, running through a medley of hits including “A Milli” and “Lollipop.” Toward the end of his set, a myriad of pornstars joined him on stage to the delight of the Young Money founder.
“I died and went to heaven,” Wayne said while adult film stars took photos with him.

Come January 27, 2018, while most of the world is in Grammy mode, Lil Wayne will be front and center at the so-called “sexiest awards show of the year” a.k.a. the AVN Awards.
The soon-to-be 34-year-old event will commence at The Joint inside the Hard Rock Hotel & Casino Las Vegas.
“We are extremely pleased to have Lil Wayne performing at the 2018 AVN Awards,” AVN president Tony Rios said in a statement. “Like many of the talent within the adult industry, he is also a successful entrepreneur having opened his own company Young Money Records. He’s an amazing addition to this year’s show and we look forward to having him.”
Lil Wayne added, “This is one of those bucket list moments for me. I’m super stoked to be a part of the awards show this year.”
Adult Film & Hip Hop: A Love Story
The performance will be one of the first big events where Weezy will get the opportunity to showcase material from Dedication 6, which drops Christmas Day.
Fans of either industry who aren’t close to the Vegas area will be able to stream in, as the show is part of the AVN Adult Entertainment Expo presented by MyFreeCams, scheduled January 24-27 at the iconic Vegas venue.
Adult superstars Angela White and Harli Lotts are scheduled to host the event as well.
