Above, you can watch Lil Wayne perform “6 Foot, 7 Foot” with Cory Gunz from his MTV Unplugged performance, which will air this Sunday (June 12) at 9PM EST on MTV. Shouts to Jake for the video, and if you are wondering why it is flipped, that is so YouTube won’t take it down.
After the jump, you can watch Weezy speak on why his MTV Unplugged performance is solo and why he covered 2Pac’s “Hail Mary” verse.
“This my first time on stage in over a year. I swear to god, I was in a place a few months ago, I couldn’t even imagine this shit. But now that I’m here… its better than I could of ever imagined.”
We just posted some pictures from Lil Wayne‘s first stop on the “I Am Still Music II” tour that took place at the Dunkin’ Donuts Center in Providence, Rhode Island last night (March 16), and now we have some footage from the show!

Many BET Awards viewers were outraged when Lil Wayne and Drake were joined on stage by several pre-teen girls during the performance of their hit song “Every Girl“.
Some journalists found the presence of the pre-teens to be a bit strange.
Overall, the show was a big downer because… many things just seemed out of place. For example, Drake‘s performance had Lil Wayne and his pre-teen daughter with other young girls on stage rapping along to “Every Girl in the World,” which is a song about having escapades with all the girls in the world. (Examiner)
Others thought Weezy‘s song choice was inappropriate in light of Michael Jackson’s recent death.
And then came Lil Wayne, in a five minute flurry of such bad taste and poor judgment one can only assume that he was high or simply confused. He performed his new single “Every Girl“. In light of the somber tone of the evening, the performance would have been gauche enough. But onstage with him at the time were several pre-teen girls, who danced in loose choreography and flocked around Lil Wayne like a prepubescent harem. (City Pages)
Miss Info also blogged about the young girls.

Many industry insiders used Twitter to express their disappointment with the performance.

So what do y’all think about this ❓ We know it is Weezy’s daughter, but I still think this is taking it a bit too far.
PS: We will be uploading lots of pics from the BET Awards 2009 tomorrow 😉
