Lil Wayne Begins Next Leg of Tour, Taps Keri Hilson — Watch
Lil Wayne kicked off the second leg of his I Am Still Music tour Wednesday night (July 13) at the Comcast Theatre in Hartford, Conn. With a killer barrage of guest artists hitting up the stage in succession, Lil Wayne wouldn't be outmatched, finishing off the set with one of his best stage exits yet.
But first, Lloyd, the Far East Movement and Rick Ross dominated the stage, followed by Keri Hilson, who performed songs from her album 'No Boys Allowed' decked out in a pink jumpsuit, a gun-shaped mic and a dollar-sign dotted sack.
Lil Wayne performed 'Nightmares of the Bottom,' an introspective single on from his upcoming album 'Tha Carter IV,' offering some Weezy wisdom: "Everybody wanna be fly, until you swat 'em." After finishing out the song, he addressed the eager crowd: "Ladies and gentleman, you are being entertained by much more than just a rapper." Before walking off the stage, he left them with "I am one of the best things to ever happen to music."
