Lil Wayne, TI, 2 Chainz

When: Sat., July 27, 7:30 p.m. 2013

In 2009, Lil Wayne brought a star-packed, radio-friendly rap event to Raleigh. The show featured Soulja Boy, Young Jeezy and much of his then just-buzzing Young Money crew (including Nicki Minaj); Drake was a no-show because of a bum leg. Four years later, Wayne is a wizened veteran, which means his star is fading. His latest album, I Am Not a Human Being 2, was a bit by-the-numbers, and he seems to be more of a syrup-sloshing ringmaster for other talents these days. There's also T.I., a bright spot on the stage, though, like Wayne, he seems to have forgotten how to make albums of late. The current king of punchlines and anti-punchlines, 2 Chainz, joins, as does G-Eazy, a somewhat fratty MC of the ilk that seems to be part of every rap show in 2013. This is being billed as a "festival," which seems a bit much. Just expect it to be a fun and refreshingly rappin'-ass show when Wayne or T.I. grip the mic, and close to standup comedy when 2 Chainz is on stage. —Brandon Soderberg
