TIDAL has announced the headliners for its annual charity concert, TIDAL X. After announcing earlier this year that the proceeds of the show will support criminal justice reform non-profits, the streaming platform has announced its stacked lineup of performers for its return to Brooklyn’s Barclays Center on October 23.
Headliners will include Lil Wayne, Meek Mill, Anderson .Paak and the return of Ms. Lauryn Hill. Kaskade will return to the event as well. This year’s lineup also features Vic Mensa, Black Thought, Teyana Taylor and more. Tickets for TIDAL X and livestream information can be found here.

This should’ve been a triumphant weekend for Lil Wayne. Last week, after years of delays and roadblocks, Wayne was finally able to release the long-awaited album Tha Carter V, and the album was an immediate success, selling a ton of copies and recording the second biggest streaming week ever to debut … More »
Lil Wayne sat down in his hometown of New Orleans with Rap Radar’s Elliott Wilson as part of Wilson’s long-running CRWN interview series. With Wayne’s triumphant Tha Carter V finally out after half a decade of delays, they had a lot to talk about. As Pitchfork points out, that included discussion … More »
Here’s how I think about it: A new Tha Carter album is like a new Die Hard movie. We can’t expect it to be like the first three. We can’t even expect it to get close. That’s not realistic. Bruce Willis can’t jump off of buildings like that anymore. Maybe we don’t even want to … More »
During his long exile from his recording career, Lil Wayne became a frequent guest on sports talk shows, to the point where Skip Bayless now looks like one of his best friends. But Lil Wayne is now, finally, back in the business of releasing music. Last week, Wayne finally got out of his legal entanglements … More »
Lil Wayne commands a sweet 16 tracks on Spotify’s Top 50 chart following the release of Tha Carter V, the first installment in the rapper’s Tha Carter series in seven years, and notably the final addition to Tha Carter legacy. Sixteen inclusions from the long-awaited album provide the introduction to the chart, with Kendrick Lamar collaboration “Mona Lisa” sitting pretty in the No. 1 spot, and the XXXTentacion-assisted “Don’t Cry” cozying up right behind “Mona Lisa” at No. 2. “Let It Fly,” “Uproar,” and several other Tha Carter V constituents follow suit before Lil Wayne’s dominancy gives way to Kanye West and Lil Pump‘s catchy drop-off, “I Love It.”
Tha Carter V brought a slew of blockbuster features to listeners’ headphones, with Snoop Dogg, Travis Scott, Nicki Minaj, Ashanti, and more making cameos. “With this album… I’m giving you more than me,” Wayne said. “You gotta always remember that. This is four, five, six years of work that you’ll be listening to, and I hope you enjoy it. You don’t have to love it, you don’t even have to like it. Just hope you enjoy every time you put it on.” As Spotify’s Top 50 chart affirms, Tha Carter series now enjoys the vigorous finale that it rightfully deserves.
After adding Phoenix to join its lineup just yesterday, the Austin City Limits festival announced today that indeed Lil Wayne will join Justice, Metallica, Travis Scott and Arctic Monkeys to headline the festival this weekend.
Wayne’s arrival comes immediately after the announcement that, due to a newly obtained foot injury, Childish Gambino needed to postpone the remaining dates on his This Is America tour until later in the year — effectively cancelling his top billing at the Texas festival. It is a timely arrival for Lil Wayne, as the rapper celebrates his 36th birthday with the release of his long-awaited Tha Carter V album drop on the same day.
We’re celebrating Lil Wayne’s Birthday today in the best way possible. We’re adding him to the Saturday, Weekend 2 #ACLFest Lineup!

Childish Gambino postponed a bunch of dates on his self-proclaimed final tour after suffering (or potentially re-aggravating) a foot injury at his Dallas show. The two dates he can’t postpone, however, are his scheduled appearances at Austin City Limits, which is going down Oct. 5-7 and 12-14 at Austin’s Zilker Park. More »
