Lil Wayne - Lil Wayne Pays Tribute To Tupac And Nirvana

Young Money rapper Lil Wayne has built anticipation for his upcoming performance at the 2011 Video Music Awards - appearing in a promo clip in which he pays tribute to rapper Tupac Shakur and rockers Nirvana, reports Mtv News.
With just twenty-six days to go till the annual ceremony, the New Orleans superstar takes centre stage in the teaser promo clip - donning neon glasses and checked trousers. The video begins as 'Weezy' sprays 'Young Money' insignia on the side of a dark elevator before entering a party where he takes over the turntables. Moments later, posters featuring the image of Tupac are spotted scattered on the floor, and Lil Wayne is seen smashing a Gibson guitar to bits while Nirvana's 'Smells like Teen Spirit' plays. After a lengthy hiatus, the rapper's much-delayed album 'Tha Carter 4' is scheduled to hit shelves on 29th August - one day after the Vma's. Others announced to perform at the awards show include Chris Brown and British songstress Adele.
The 28th annual Mtv Video Music Awards will air live on Sunday 28th August from the Nokia Theatre in Los Angeles. This year's big nominees include Britney Spears, Bruno Mars and KATY PERRY.
