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!

TIDAL Confirm They Will Be Streaming Lil Wayne’s “Lil Weezyana Fest” Exclusively

TIDAL Confirm They Will Be Streaming Lil Wayne Lil Weezyana Fest Exclusively

TIDAL have confirmed they will be streaming Lil Wayne‘s upcoming 1st annual “Lil Weezyana Fest” exclusively that will be taking place from 7PM at Champions Square’s Bold Sphere Music in New Orleans, Louisiana on August 28th to benefit the victims of Hurricane Katrina.

It was first speculated that Jay Z‘s streaming service would be streaming the music festival, but that was put under question when Birdman filed a lawsuit against TIDAL claiming they didn’t have the rights to release the Free Weezy Album, or any other Tunechi music.

Even though the lawsuit is still open, it has not stopped TIDAL from confirming that they will be streaming the “Lil Weezyana Fest” for their registered users, who will be able to see Weezy reunite from the former Cash Money Millionaires: Mannie Fresh, Turk, and Juvenile!

Lil Wayne & Drake Scrap Collabo Project x Weezy & Birdman Headline MTV2 Sucker Free Awards

Lil Wayne & Drake Scrap Collabo Project x Weezy & Birdman Headline MTV2 Sucker Free Awards

Earlier, Drake told XXL Magazine that him and Lil Wayne have agreed to scrap their joint project, because it would just be compared to Kanye West and Jay-Z’s Watch The Throne album every time. Drizzy is still planning to do a collabo mixtape with Rick Ross though, so I am sure we will see quite a few YMCMB and MMG collaborations on there!

“Me and Wayne scrapped the idea of a collaboration album,” Drake told XXL. “We just agreed that it would be looked upon as… It would be sort of this competition with Watch The Throne. I feel like it would get caught in this whirlwind of hype. Wayne agreed. We just said, ‘If we do it, we’ll do it down the line. But right now is not the time.'”

In other Weezy news, MTV recently announced that Tunechi and Birdman will be performing “Y.U. Mad” live at the first annual MTV2 Sucker Free Awards in Miami. The show, which will be hosted by Sway Calloway, will air on Sunday, December 4th at 11PM EST at the LIV Fontainebleau in South Beach.
