Lil Wayne Taking His "Carter V" Talents To "Saturday Night Live"
Lil Wayne is returning to the Saturday Night Live stage. Weezy has been announced as the musical performer for the November 10 episode of SNL.
The Young Money head honcho is set to be the third rapper to perform during the long-running sketch show’s 44th season. Kanye West was the musical guest for SNL’s season premiere and caused a scene with a pro-Donald Trump rant at the end of the show. Travis Scott performed the following week and appeared in one of the episode’s sketches.
Weezy’s upcoming performance will be his first on SNL since 2010. Wayne’s last appearance occurred just one month after he finished serving time in prison on a felony gun charge and included a collaboration with Eminem.
Wayne’s upcoming return to 30 Rock continues the promotional campaign for Tha Carter V, which dropped in September. The album was his first studio LP to not be released by Cash Money Records.
