Lil Wayne, the Multi-platinum and Grammy award winning recording artist, who has sold more than 10 million records and whose multi-platinum 2008 album, The Carter III, shattered records by selling in excess of one million copies in its first week of release, will be joined by protégé Nicki Minaj, a top selling rapper signed to his Young Money imprint, whose critically acclaimed debut album Pink Friday has since gone Platinum. In addition to main support act Nicki Minaj, he will also be joined by hip hop heavyweight Rick Ross, whose latest effort, Teflon Don, debuted at number two on the Billboard 200 and has since been certified Gold. Rounding out the stellar line up are Travis Barker and Mixmaster Mike, will open all dates with a DJ/Drummer set. Travis Barker will release his album Give the Drummer Some on March 15, with the first single dropping on February 1.

A dynamic performer celebrated for his endless energy and high voltage live show, Lil Wayne’s “I’m Still Music Tour” promises to be his strongest to date. The tour follows Lil Wayne’s unparalleled touring success in the 2008 – 2009 year during which Lil Wayne performed 78 headline shows across domestic arenas and amphitheatres in nine months, grossing more than $40 million USD, making him hip hop’s most profitable touring artist.

Lil Wayne recently released “6 Foot 7 Foot”, the first single off his heavily anticipated The Carter IV album, slated for a Spring 2011 release via Young Money/Cash Money/Universal Motown. Produced by Shondrae ‘Bangladesh’ Crawford and featuring a verse from Young Money newcomer Cory Gunz, “6 Foot 7 Foot” is a dynamic exercise in word play and flow in which Lil Wayne rhymes over a sample of Harry Belafonte’s “Banana Boat Song (Day-O).”
