Behind The Scenes Footage Of John Wall & Lil Wayne’s Video Shoot

Behind The Scenes Footage Of John Wall & Lil Wayne Video Shoot

2 months ago, we saw a clip of Lil Wayne and John Wall shooting videos for “30 Minutes To New Orleans“, “3 Peat” and “6 Foot, 7 Foot” at the private TRUKSTOP skate park in Miami, Florida.

It turns out that Tunechi and the Washington Wizards player were interviewing each other about hip-hop and NBA, which we will be seeing soon with Bleacher Report. Tune even jokingly said Wall has retired from basketball and is now signed to Young Money as a rapper!

BallIsLife have also released some behind the scenes footage of what went down during John and Weezy‘s meet for season 2, episode 6 of their “Summer of Separation” series that you can watch below (starts at the 7:30 mark).

Lil Wayne Reunites With Sqad Up & Hot Boys At His Lil Weezyana Fest In New Orleans

As we already know, Lil Wayne held his 1st annual “Lil Weezyana Fest” at Champions Square’s Bold Sphere Music in New Orleans, Louisiana on August 28th. I can’t post the full video of Weezy‘s live performance that was broadcasted on TIDAL, but you can watch some footage recorded from the crowd below.

In the clips, Lil Wayne can be seen opening up his concert by performing “Mr. Carter” live, as well as reuniting and performing live with Sqad Up‘s Gudda Gudda, Kidd Kidd, Dizzy and Fee Banks, the Hot Boys‘ Juvenile and Turk, Master P, No Limit, Mannie Fresh, and Curren$y.

What Went Down At Lil Wayne’s 1st Annual “Lil Weezyana Fest” In New Orleans?

What Went Down At Lil Wayne 1st Annual Lil Weezyana Fest In New Orleans

The 1st annual “Lil Weezyana Fest” took place tonight at Champions Square’s Bold Sphere Music in Lil Wayne‘s hometown New Orleans, Louisiana. If you could not be in attendance, Jay Z’s streaming service TIDAL let anyone with an account watch the full show live as it happened.

Personally this was one of the greatest Tunechi concerts I have ever watched and my highlight was seeing a Sqad Up reunion on stage with Tune rapping his verses from the Sqad Up tapes word for word. He also mentioned throughout the show that he hopes to do a “Lil Weezyana Fest” every single year like how Drake does his “OVO Fest”.

Weezy brought plenty of special guests out tonight including: Drake, Ms. Tee, Big Freedia, DJ Jubilee, Cory Gunz, 5th Ward Weebie, Jake Troth, Shanell, August Alsina, Dizzy, Kidd Kidd, Gudda Gudda, Fee Banks, Curren$y, Mannie Fresh, Mack Maine, Juvenile, Turk, Hood, Euro, Master P and No Limit, and Jae Millz.

It was good to see Wayne take it back and perform songs off his older projects too, such as “Georgia Bush“, “Dedication 2 (Bang Bang)“, “I Miss My Dawgs“, “Kush“, “We Ready“, “Guess Who’s Back?“, “Best Of Me“, “Bling Bling“, “Project Bitch“, and plenty more. The biggest disappointment was when TIDAL had to cut off viewers from watching Drizzy’s set as he is under contract with Apple.

I have listed every song that Mr. Carter performed live at his 2015 “Lil Weezyana Fest” after the jump below. What was your favorite part or parts of the concert? Let me know in the comments section!

August Alsina Announces Why I Do It Collaboration With Lil Wayne

August Alsina took to his Instagram page not so long ago to announce that he has a new song called “Why I Do It” featuring Lil Wayne on the way. They previously collaborated on the Kissin’ On My Tattoos” remix.

The New Orleans singer reveals that he will be releasing the collaboration on Friday (August 28th), which is also the same date as the “Lil Weezyana Fest“, so they may even possibly hit the stage to perform it live.

As well as “Why I Do It“, we can also be looking forward to Juicy J’s “Miss Mary Mack” and Curren$y’s “Bottom Of The Bottle” tracks as they both feature Weezy and Alsina too!
