Lil Wayne to kick off first tour since jail
NEW YORK - January 24, 2011 (WPVI) -- Fans who missed Lil Wayne during his yearlong stint behind bars will get a chance to show their love for the multiplatinum rapper in person: He's kicking off a 25-city tour in March with an all-star supporting cast.
Nicki Minaj (mih-NAHJ'), Rick Ross, Travis Barker and Mixmaster Mike will accompany Lil Wayne on his "I Am Music II" tour, which will start in Buffalo, N.Y., on March 18 and hit cities such as Atlanta, Miami, Washington and his hometown of New Orleans.
Although Lil Wayne released the album "I Am Not a Human Being" while in a New York jail for a weapons charge last year, he's gearing up for a big return to the scene in 2011. He's got a hit "6 Foot 7 Foot" and is due to release "Tha Carter IV" this spring.
