Lil Wayne Kicks Off Second Leg of Tour with Keri Hilson, Rick Ross

Lil Wayne launched the second leg of his “I Am Still Music” tour at Comcast Theatre in Hartford, Conn., on Wednesday night (July 13).

Following sets from Lloyd and Far East Movement, Keri Hilson stole the spotlight, performing material from her sophomore album No Boys Allowed. Rocking a pink jumpsuit and holding a sack of money, the blonde bandit wielded a gun-shaped mic as she delivered her girl power anthems.

Rick Ross invaded the stage with his bombastic hits including “9 Piece” and “Hustlin'” before making way for Weezy F. The YMCMB headliner, who doesn’t rehearse for his tours, brought out guests Mack Maine for “Got Money” and Ace Hood for the remix to “Hustle Hard,” offering concertgoers a taste of his upcoming album Tha Carter IV with “Nightmares of the Bottom.”

“Ladies and gentleman, you are being entertained by much more than just a rapper. I am one of the best things to ever happen to music,” he boldly declared before disappearing into the shadows.
