We recently told you Wayniacs that Lil Wayne has picked up 3 nominations for MTV’s Video Music Awards, and now MTV has just confirmed that Weezy will be performing at the show as well! Right now, we don’t know what songs Tunechi will be performing at the show, but maybe he will perform a new track off his Tha Carter IV album because the album is set to drop at midnight after the VMAs go off. The 28th annual MTV Video Music Awards will air live on Sunday, August 28th at 9PM EST from the Nokia Theater in Los Angeles.
“Being a nominee and performer on the VMAs once again is an honor because everyone doesn’t get that opportunity,” Wayne said in a statement. The event coincides with the August 29 release of his upcoming album. “Looking forward to performing on the show, and having Tha Carter IV drop the same week!”
After the jump, you can check out a few photos from a recent Lil Wayne photo shoot that could possibly be used for Wayne‘s Tha Carter IV album booklet.
