The Lil Wayne “I Am Still Music” tour whizzed through the Atlanta region last night and fans were more than delighted to see the Miami resident back in full form.
Wayne, Nicki Minaj, Rick Ross and drummer Travis Barker took over ATL’s Phillips Arena for an evening of good music and entertainment. The last time Weezy touched the stage at the arena, he was a special guest during Young Jeezy’s set closing out the annual radio concert “Birthday Bash.” Last night the YM founder stuck to the script he’d been using throughout the tour bringing out no special guests outside of his Young Money roster. For a minute, fans were expecting to see either Jeezy or Gucci Mane hit the stage but Jeezy was in Chicago crowning his latest Corporate Thugz Entertainment signee Freddie Gibbs while Gucc remains locked up in the county’s jail on probation violation charges.
The ATL stop for Wayne comes following news that he never applied for a visa to take his trek abroad, according to his reps. “No visa was ever filed, nor were there any tour dates announced or tickets sold,” a rep from Weezy’s tour told MTV News. “Lil Wayne is currently headlining his ’I Am Still Music Tour’ across the U.S. and Canada with plans to extend the tour through North America this summer. We hope to bring the I Am Still Music Tour to the U.K. in the later half of the year.”
Following the show, Wayne and his YM camp took to Club Compound where he posed for photos with his fans. Jermaine Dupri, producer Jazze Pha and rapper Mo Pain were also on hand for the festivities. Compound was completely redecorated for Wayne’s arrival and at one point it appeared the club would run out of Moet Rose’ after Pain and his entourage secured an impressive 100 bottles of the champagne.
