Lil Wayne Is Making the Leap to Reality TV With a New VH1 Show
Lil Wayne is reportedly headed to television. The hip-hop star and his Young Money roster have a new reality show with VH1, according to Young Money artist Stephanie Acevedo.
Sharing the news via a Facebook video alongside famed plastic surgeon Dr. Miami, Acevedo explained some of the details surrounding the upcoming program. The show will apparently feature various artists on Wayne's Young Money roster.
"We just got a contract with VH1," she says. "We're going to be doing a reality show that we're gonna be shooting in July in LA."
"It's just basically us coming together as artists," she says, "as a family, collaborating. Wayne's gonna be our mentor."
Lil Wayne hosted a "Weezy Wednesdays" blog two years ago and he's obviously very comfortable in front of cameras, but this is first official foray into television. Nicki had her own four-part miniseries Nicki Minaj: My Truth back in 2012 and infamously did a stint hosting American Idol that same year. She is also executive producing a sitcom premiering on ABC Family based on her life. Of course, Drake is a TV veteran; having starred on Degrassi: The Next Generation and showcased his acting and comedy chops during hosting duties on SNL.
