Lil Wayne to Perform at MTV VMAs

Lil Wayne

Lil Wayne will take center stage at the MTV Video Music Awards next month. In a not-so-surprising move, the hip-hop heavyweight is among the performers at this year’s show.

While MTV has yet to make an official announcement or reveal nominees, Wayne’s manager Cortez Bryant spilled the beans to Billboard.com during a recent interview, also revealing that Tha Carter IV will be available on iTunes “immediately after” his VMA performance.

The long-awaited album is complete and Bryant confirmed appearances from Nas, Jadakiss, and Tech N9ne. “It’s done for the most part, [around] thirty songs [that] I need to carve down to twelve to sixteen, with four or so bonus tracks,” he explained.

The 2011 MTV Video Music Awards will air live from the Nokia Theatre L.A. LIVE in downtown Los Angeles on August 28 at 9 p.m.

    @hello, i dont think he will tbh. It was released last month, i’m guessing he’ll drop another single within the next month and then perform that, or a medley.

    It would be tight if Lil Wayne & Kelly Rowland performed “Motivation” also!

    @sscott5236, Doubt it!! Kelly is lucky BET had her. Sorry, she’s not MTV material, unless she’s standing next to Beyonce or Michelle.

    Beyonce’s “Run the World (Girls)” will get a lot of nominations so she is expected to perform!! well i hope she does.

    Im also expecting Gaga & Britney to perform. They’ll get nominations too. As for Rihanna, she ain’t getting any nominations because what she lacks in her videos is choreography LOL. I was suprised when “Rude Boy” only received 1 nomination last year and that video was like one of her best.
