Migos, Mystikal and More to Join Lil Wayne for 2016 Lil Weezyana Fest
Last year, Lil Wayne brought out Turk and Juvenile at his first annual Lil Weezyana Fest in New Orleans, billing it as a Hot Boys reunion of sorts, complete with Mannie Fresh. It was a glorious moment not just for the N.O. but hip-hop at large, and though this year's concert doesn't boast quite the same kind of event, it does feature a couple crazy appearances.
Yesterday (Aug. 17) Weezy announced that 2 Chainz, Migos, Mystikal and Yo Gotti would be joining him for this year's Lil Weezyana Fest 2, set to take place on Aug. 27. Tickets are available on Ticketmaster now.
No Limit and Cash Money buried their beef a long time ago, but it's still exciting to hear that Mystikal and Wayne will be sharing the stage together.
But the fact that legendary New Orleans rap group Partners N Crime will also be performing is just as dope. They were a part of another well-respected N.O. label called Big Boy Records, and they released classic albums in the mid-'90s like P.N.C. and What'cha Wanna Do? The fact that a contemporary rap group like Migos and a throwback clique like P.N.C. are sharing the same bill is astounding in and of itself.
