There is definitely more life after Cash Money Records. Lil Wayne has been confirmed as a musical performer for Saturday Night Live.
Weezy will hit the 30 Rockefeller stage on November 10. This makes him the third Hip-Hop artist, after Kanye West and Travis Scott, to do a live set on the 44th season of the iconic variety show. Liev Schreiber, of Ray Donavan fame, will also make his hosting debut. An official announcement was made on SNL’s twitter account earlier this week.
This marks the first time since 2010 that Weezy has performed on the show. The previous set, where he performed “6 Foot 7 Foot,” was shortly after he was freed after serving time in prison for gun possession. Expect TuneChi to perform songs from his long-delayed but finally released Tha Carter V.
The album debuted number one on the Billboard 200 charts with 480,000 album equivalent sales. At the close of October it has sold over 700,000 units to date.
