Lil Wayne Joins Jay-Z Onstage, Court Date Postponed Again
Lil Wayne didn't go to prison yesterday due to a courthouse fire, but that didn't stop the rapper from "Goin' In" during Young Jeezy's set at Jay-Z's "Blueprint 3" tour stop in New York last night (March 2). According to MTV, his sentencing has been rescheduled for Monday (Mar. 8).
"I'm gonna go into some real shit for y'all right here," Jay-Z warned before Jeezy came up out the ground by way of a mechanical lift about 45 minutes after Jay's set started. After performing their collabo, "Real As It Gets," Jay-Z exited the stage for Jeezy's solo performance, which turned out not to be so "solo" after all. After spitting a few verses, including the one from Shawty Lo's "Dey Know," Jeezy gave a "shout out to my homie Lil Wayne -- hold your head up." He then said he wanted to bring someone out to dedicate a record to him, which was when Nicki Minaj, sporting gold tights, a fitted black blazer and her staple black and pink wig entered the stage, performing her verse from "Bedrock." "Where's my bad bitches at?" Nicki asked the crowd.
After the song, Jeezy asked Nicki to stay on stage as the beat from "I'm Goin' In" dropped. Lil Wayne then emerged from the mini stage where Jay-Z's Roc Boys band was playing and jumped on the main stage with Jeezy and Minaj. The surprise appearance set the concertgoers into a frenzy.
Drake then came out wearing all white -- unlike the rest of the performers who wore "all black everything" -- and performed his verse to the charting track. The crowd seemed just as excited to see Drake, giving him a raucous response. Jeezy closed the song out with his verse, and all three men chanted the chorus in unison: "I'm goin' in, I'm goin' in, and I'mma go hard!"
"Jeezy, you a real n*gga," Wayne said before walking off stage. "We with you 100 percent," Jeezy replied.
After asking the room to "make some noise" for Wayne and Young Money, Jeezy hit the crowd with his own hits, like "Crazy World," "Trap Star/Go Crazy," and "Go Getta." He closed out his set by bringing out his final guest, Akon, for "Soul Survivor."
