One of the greatest rappers of our generation and my personal favourite hip-hop artist Lil Wayne is on his way to South Africa as part of the I AM STILL MUSIC tour in December this year. Having been a major part of the hip hop industry for years his CV is more impressive than most, having sold countless records and even being responsible for the creation of the term “bling bling”.
His lyrics and wordplay truely make him one of the best entertainers of our time and I for one am looking forward to seeing him live and hopefully getting the chance to chat with him as well. The peeps responsible for making the tour a reality are Canoc Productions who you all will be familiar with after the Trey Songz event earlier this year. It has been a long time coming and it really is good to see local promoters putting in the effort to bring some big names to South Africa.
The tour dates as quoted on the Lil Wayne I AM STILL MUSIC official website are:
7th December- At the Bellville Velodrome Cape Town
9th December- At the Coca-Cola Dome Jozi
11th December- Venue TBA Durban
Tickets are on sale from Computicket from 8am 24th September 2011
We’ll definitely keep you all up to date on developments as time goes by… I can just see it now- Lil Wayne on stage and on pops Drake (who just happens to be in South Africa at the time as well). Yes please… Shades darker than bitch but I can see!!
