Rolling Stone's new cover boy Lil Wayne — who we're pretty sure needed to look up what "Escher-like staircase" meant after he read the article — is coming to town on March 24.
Just a couple months out of jail, Weezy is kicking off a 25-city I Am Music II tour in Buffalo on March 18. Five dates later he'll play Quicken Loans Arena.
Wayne's recent records — including last year's rap-rock travesty Rebirth and the quickie I Am Not a Human Being — are mostly meh. And we're kinda sick of him. But the No Ceilings mixtape and 2008's Tha Carter III are two of the best hip-hop records released over the past few years. So yeah, we're excited.
The tour also includes Nicki Minaj (who we totally love), Travis Barker (who we totally hate), and Rick Ross (who we totally like when he's on).
Tickets will most likely go on sale through Live Nation during the February 4 weekend. Stay tuned. —Michael Gallucci
