Lil Wayne, Rick Ross, And Nicki Minaj Are Invading Long Island In March


If ever you wanted an excuse to truck out to Long Island’s Nassau Coliseum, home to perennial NHL doormats the New York Islanders, this’d be it: Lil Wayne’s I Am Music II tour, costarring Rick Ross, Nicki Minaj, Mixmaster Mike, and indomitable rapper accessory Travis Barker, is coming to town March 27, his second announced area appearance. (There’s also that deranged Bamboozle Fest lineup out at the Meadowlands this spring, costarring Mötley Crüe, Gaslight Anthem, Das Racist, and 10,000 or so foul-mouthed teenagers.) Tix will be on sale February 4; The Carter IV will allegedly be out this spring. Hopefully, in lieu of any tracks from Rebirth, he just plays “6’7” eight or nine times.
