Lil Wayne, Young Jeezy, Soulja Boy Tell’Em and Drake will go on an official tour this summer, and the dates have just been confirmed. The “Young Money Presents: Americas Most Wanted Music Festival” trek will start on July 27 at the Toyota Pavilion at Scranton, Pennsylvania, and will end on August 23 in Dallas, Texas.
According to reps, Wayne will headline while Jeezy, Soulja Boy and Drake will serve as openers. Tickets for the 21-city tour go on sale June 20th via Ticketmaster, Live Nation and select venue ticketing systems.
Lil Wayne’s upcoming rock album, “Rebirth,” was originally slated for an early April release then pushed to May and then June. Now, his seventh solo studio album is due on July 21 via Young Money/Cash Money/Universal Records. First single, “Prom Queen,” reached No. 15 on the Hot 100 chart earlier this year.
Drake, who is an affiliate of Wayne’s Young Money label and possibly the most sought-after artist in hip-hop, recently went in the studio to work on his highly-anticipated debut, “Thank Me Later,” although it is unknown yet which label will release it.
Soulja Boy is currently working on his third studio album, “The DeAndre Way,” as well as Jeezy, who is readying his “Thug Motivation 103.” Neither album has a release date yet.
