Lil Wayne is plotting a Sin City takeover with his forthcoming Drai's nightclub residency. Following his Drai's debut in March, the rap star will be performing a medley of hits including smashes like "A Milli," "Mrs. Officer," "No Worries" and "Lollipop" for a string of dates atop The Cromwell on the Las Vegas Strip

"My first night at Drai's was magical. I'm happy we created a partnership for me to come tear down the stage at the best club in Vegas!!," he says in a statement sent to Billboard. "Wayne Newton put his stamp on Sin City, now its time for the next Wayne to do the same!"

Weezy is set to perform on May 27, June 10, July 22, Sept. 3 and Oct. 29. Wayne follows previous Drai's acts including Future, Big Sean, Rae Sremmurd, Fabolous among others. 

Adds Michael Gruber, president and partner of Drai's Enterprises: “We are really excited  to welcome Wayne into the Drai’s family. He is an incredible talent and a guiding force in the music industry; we look forward to what he has in store for the fans that will certainly be coming to see him at Drai’s Las Vegas and being a part of the Drai’s LIVE performances.”

Last year, Lil Wayne teased a forthcoming project Funeral as well other highly-anticipated offerings Tha Carter V and Dedication 6. He's recently made cameos on DJ Khaled's star-studded release "I'm The One" and Nicki Minaj's tracks "No Frauds" and "Changed It."
