Pint-sized Young Money General Lil Wayne interrupted his Houston show to salute America on the 10th anniversary of 9.11. He then brought out his “blood brother” and future Young Money signee Game. I wrote about the concert here.
“Three things I want you to know about myself,” Lil Wayne told the Woodlands Pavillion at the start of Sunday night’s show:
1. “I believe in God.”
2. “I ain’t shit without you.”
3. “I ain’t shit without you.”
Wayne took the stage around 9 p.m., following a string of heavyweight openers. We weren’t lucky enough to catch Lloyd, but we’re sure his baby hair looked amazing. After going through a TSA-style patdown (“Sir, please pull up your pants and roll down your socks”), we finally made our way in just in time to see Keri Hilson simultaneously singing and grinding.
Rick Ross followed with a set that sounded like a thousand elephants stomping on a cornfield. Bun B and Trae took turns sharing the stage with the Maybach Music General, performing a crowd-assisted “Big Pimpin'” and “Gettin’ Paid” respectively. And when a pint-sized, dreadlocked rapper joined Rozay for “Hustle Hard,” the venue erupted. The ecstatic cheer vanished as soon as the crowd realized it was Ace Hood and Ace Hood realized he needs to stop dressing like Lil Wayne.
The real Wayne showed up at exactly 9:12, rocking blue cutoff jean shorts, striped knee-high socks, green skateboard shoes, and a red skully, which he would later trade for a baseball hat. backed by a four-piece band throughout, Wayne stood in front of a ginormous screen with epilepsy-inducing graphics – spinning cubes, rotating film reel, a massive inferno – and opened with his blistering verse from Eminem’s “No Love.”
