Lil Wayne Reunites The Hot Boys At Lil Weezyana Fest In NOLA
Lil Wayne threw his first-ever Lil WeezyAna Fest in New Orleans on Friday (August 28), which came on the 10th anniversary of Hurricane Katrina.
It was a two-hour concert full of hits and surprise guests, which was streamed live on TIDAL from Bold Sphere Music at Champions Square.
After hitting the stage with "Mr. Carter," Weezy ran through hits like "6 Foot, 7 Foot," "Loyal" and "How to Love," before bringing out guests. He introduced Mack Maine and Curren$y, but the big highlight was the Hot Boys, who performed together for the first time in over 10 years.
"Ladies and gentlemen, can I take it back?" Lil Wayne asked the crowd, as Mannie Fresh, Turk and Juvenile joined him and moved through a medley of their classics including "Bling Bling," "Project Bitch," "I Need a Hot Girl," and "Back That Azz Up."
Member B.G. is behind bars, but he was represented by his mother and son, who stood on stage holding up T-shirts with his face on it.
In addition to the Hot Boys, Louisiana rap legends Master P and Mia X also made appearances, performing "Make 'Em Say Uhh."
Drake closed out the show with a medley of "HYFR," "My Way," "Back to Back" and "Know Yourself".
Other guests included August Alsina, Shanell, Cory Gunz, Big Freedia, and 5th Ward Webbie.
