Lil Wayne & Drake Perform Believe Me, Trophies, Loyal & More Live In Tampa Florida

I posted up pictures earlier today and now here is some great quality footage of Lil Wayne and Drake performing live in Tampa, Florida at the MidFlorida Credit Union Amphitheatre on September 4th for a stop on their “Drake vs. Lil Wayne” tour.

The Young Money rappers can be seen performing “Hold On, We’re Going Home“, “Believe Me“, “HYFR“, “The Motto“, “Trophies“, “Started From The Bottom“, “Blunt Blowin“, “Leather So Soft“, “Every Girl“, “Bitches Love Me“, “6 Foot, 7 Foot“, “Bandz A Make Her Dance“, “Make It Rain“, “Who Do You Love?“, and “Loyal” in the videos below.

During some of the clips, Tunechi and Drizzy Drake have a tea break and discuss who the real “Feature King” is, Drizzy does a floor backflip at the end of the “Loyal” performance, Drake tells the crowd that “in this lifetime there is only one greatest rapper of all time” as he introduces Tunechi to perform “Believe Me“, and Tune smokes on stage as Drizzy performs “Started From The Bottom“!

Video & Review Of Lil Wayne Performing In London

In the video above, Lil Wayne performs “Let The Beat Build“, “Comfortable“, and “Mrs. Officer” with Shanell at the Hammersmith Apollo in London, UK. You can view some high quality pictures here, and also check out the review MTV did for this tour:

The initial signs weren’t good for Lil Wayne’s London gigs. The rapper has a reputation as much his for drug use, court appearances and unpredictable behaviour as his music.

Then his European tour dates- including three shows at the Hammersmith Apollo- were postponed from July because of an unspecified ‘illness’.

But watching last night MTV forgot the scandals, rumours and arrests as soon as Weezy ran out (wearing Union Jack trainers) to his bass heavy hit A Milli.

It was clear straight away that the dreadlocked MC was on fairly sober form- interacting with the young crowd, laughing, play-acting and constantly running from one side of the stage to the other.

Pretending to play a guitar for a couple of tracks Wayne proved he’s no Jimi Hendrix. But backed by drummer, DJ, guitar, bass and keys the rock tracks from his forthcoming album The Rebirth (including single Prom Queen) sound promising.

Ultimately though it’s Tha Carter III that sets Lil Wayne apart from the pack- and was deservedly the best selling album of 2008 in the US.

Highlights at this show include Tie My Hands- a lament to his home town New Orleans post-hurricane, and flirting anthem Mrs Officer (“My face on a wanted poster/ I’m wanted by every lady cop all over”).

Kanye produced Let The Beat Build is all too brief and though it’s not his smartest lyric the crowd unsurprisingly love Lollipop.

On Mr Carter Wayne lays claim to be one of the greatest – up there with Biggie, 2Pac and Jay-Z – and on stage tonight with his odd couplets, twisting flow and smile that glistens across the venue it’s hard to argue.

Talking to the audience near the end of the gig he says: “I’m just me and I love you for loving me London.”

Before of course adding “Young Moolah baby!”
