After a two-month delay, Lil Wayne is hosting his annual Lil Weezyana Fest this weekend in his hometown of New Orleans, and he’s added Rick Ross and Cam’ron to the lineup.
The annual event was originally scheduled for August but was delayed due “unforeseen circumstances.” Wayne’s headlining his sixth festival on Saturday at the Champions Square in The Big Easy. The show will also feature Quavo & Takeoff from Migos, Babyface Ray, Rob49, Neno Calvin, artists from his Young Money Entertainment label and surprise guests.
The first Lil Weezyana Fest in 2015 commemorated the 10th anniversary of Hurricane Katrina.
The annual event was canceled in 2020 and 2021 due to the COVID-19 pandemic. In 2019, Travis Scott, Megan Thee Stallion, Meek Mill, Trey Songz, Kash Doll, Saweetie and more took the stage. Previous shows featured NBA Youngboy, Jeezy, Gucci Mane, Master P, Big Freedia, Tory Lanez, Migos, Yo Gotti, 2 Chainz and the Hot Boyz, with surprise guests including Drake, Nicki Minaj, Chris Brown, and Birdman.
This year, proceeds from the festival will be donated to support educational initiatives for the youth of New Orleans.
