American rapper Lil' Wayne had a monster year in 2008 and it looks like it is going to continue in 2009. His latest album "Tha Carter III" was monster, as a result he got several (eight to be exact, the most this year) Grammy Award nominations and his tour has been selling thousands of tickets wherever it goes.
Since the release of his first solo album in 1999 "The Block is Hot" this rapper has been near the top of the charts. You can tell that he is an artist who is respected by his peers as he has collaborated on songs with Juvenile, Chris Brown, Wyclef Jean, and Jay-Z.
While he is firmly a hip hop/rap act Lil' Wayne cites Nirvana as an influence on his music. And he also performed on the Country Music Awards (the first hip hop artist to do so) with Kid Rock, so obviously he is open to other types of music.
With this show you are getting plenty of music for your price of admission as Lil' Wayne is traveling with four opening acts. It seems like the show will be going on "All Night Long".
