New Orleans jam-packed Hornets Arena went wild when Lil Wayne took to the stage and kicked off the proceedings with the line: “It’s good to be home, New Orleans.”
Fresh from concluding his ‘I Am Still Music’ countrywide tour, Weezy and all his tour mates including Porcelain Black, Mix Master Mike & Travis Barker, and Ricky Ross took turns to treat the perplexed crowd of Cash Money CEO’s hometown. Later on in the show DJ Khaled also made a surprise appearance.
Wayne started off with an intense performance of “A Milli” and “Got Money,” then he called out DJ 45 and asked him to present something in honour of his native city. He then launched into his tribute to the rappers that have recently died and paid his respect in his trademark lyrical style.
After Minaj vacated the stage, the audience was given a full dose of Young Money stars, as Jae Millz, Gudda Gudda and Mack Maine all teamed up with their record label boss to rip apart ‘Every Girl.’ Wayne remained in the limelight, but his minions departed so Ace Hood could come forward for ‘Hustle Hard’- his duet with the Young Money founder. It was then time for Weezy to take a much deserved break, so Lil Chuckee, Lil Twist, Gudda, Mack and Millz combined to spit ‘Bedrock.’ Cash Money CEO Birdman then made an appearance to deliver a sizzling version of his hit track ‘Fire Flame (Remix).’

These days, the Game is sporting the red color as a promo tool for his upcoming R.E.D. Album. On his upcoming song Red Nation, Lil Wayne, who has a liking for the color red, brought the hook. MTV News hooked up with the Game on the set of his video shoot, and the Compton- born MC revealed how he got Weezy involved on this project.
“I called Wayne and I was like, ‘Yo I need you to kill this hook.’ He was like, ‘No problem,’ and he did his thing for me,” Game recalled.
The Game likes to record his guest artists’ material in the studios himself in his own presence, rather than receiving pre-recorded content through the internet or mail. However, he made an exemption for the Young Money boss. He explained that since Wayne was on the road for his ‘I Am Still Music’ tour and therefore it wasn’t feasible for him to meet the Game in his studio. Because both of them have worked together under one roof before he knew Wayne’s working style and was fully confident that the delivered material will be according to his liking.
