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.
