Just two months out of Rikers Island, it looks like Weezy is resuming his duties as the best rapper alive in a very big way.
First came the release of the relentless (and awesome), Bangladesh-produced “6’7′,” as well as an amazing performance of the track with Eminem on Saturday Night Live late last year. And now, earlier this week, the I Am Music II Tour was announced, reportedly to coincide with the release of Wayne’s highly anticipated Tha Carter IV album.
Joining Wayne will be none other than co-headliner Nicki Minaj (Weezy’s protege-turned-bona fide-superstar), Rick Ross, and the duo of Travis Barker and Mixmaster Mike. Having gone to the first I Am Music Tour, I can assure you that Wayne’s live show is a really good time. This is not to be missed.
Meanwhile, Tha Carter IV is allegedly slated for release this Spring, but I wouldn’t hold my breath. Both Tha Carter III and Rebirth albums received multiple painful delays before they ever saw the light of day. Judging by the fact that Wayne just got out of prison, I’d say a March release date for the most eagerly-awaited Hip Hop album of the past ten years is a bit of a stretch. But I guess you never know.
