Lil Wayne is one of rap’s most electric figures, but the Young Money star is ready to unplug. As fans gear up for the release of Weezy’s long-awaited ninth studio album Tha Carter IV, the New Orleans lyricist will appear on “MTV2 Presents: Lil Wayne Unplugged.”
The program, which is set to premiere across MTV2, MTV and MTV.com on Sunday, June 12 at 9 PM ET/PT, will feature Tunechi performing acoustic versions of select hits from his classic catalog.
The show will be MTV’s first televised rap unplugged concert since Jay-Z’s 2001 special and come 20 years after LL Cool J, A Tribe Called Quest and De La Soul appeared on the original Yo! Unplugged Rap.
