Lil Wayne and Nick Minaj To Play Wells Fargo Center

No longer incarcerated rapper and Roling Stone cover boy Lil Wayne will play the Wells Fargo Center in South Philadelphia on March 26 with an all-star undercard that includes Nicki Minaj, Rick Ross and Travis Barker. With typical Weezyan self-deprecation, Wayne has titled this jaunt, which kicks off in Buffalo on March 18,  the I Am Music II tour.

In the Rolling Stone issue currently on shelves, Wayne talks about his reading material in Rikers Island, which included bios of Vince Lombardi, Joan Jett, Anthony Kiedis, Jimi Hendrix and Marvin Gaye. "I also read the Bible for the first time," he told Josh Eels. "It was deep! I liked the parts where some character was once this, but he ended up being that. Like he'd be dissing Jesus, and then he ends up being a saint. That was cool." Below, Wayne's new single, "Six Foot Seven Foot." More tour info here.


Update: Tickets go on sale this Saturday, 2/5 at 10 a.m., the same time that ducats become available for the May 21 show at the Tower Theare by harmonious indie rock woodsmen Fleet Foxes. Info on both sows at
