Lil Wayne Set To Play A One Off December Show In Texas
via the Brownsville Herald
Lil’ Wayne will perform Dec. 17 at the Dodge Arena in Hidalgo, venue officials have announced. Tickets go on sale Monday, Nov. 30, at Ticketmaster outlets and the Dodge Arena box office.
Lil’ Wayne ranks among the top active hip hop artists in terms of both sales and critical acclaim. Last summer, singles off his Tha Carter III album blasted from the radio, clubs and car stereo systems. He’s widely praised for his creative word play, and his distinctive, raspy New Orleans drawl make his rapping easy to identify.
His follow up to the mega-successful Tha Carter III is scheduled to debut Dec. 21. Wayne, who has occasionally tried to play electric guitar during concert and festival performances, has said this disc marks his rock debut.
Rumors are flying about the album --– he pays homage to The Beastie Boys, he collaborated with Fall Out Boy, he raps over instrumentals that sound like Coldplay --– but it’s hard to predict anything with Wayne.
