UPDATE (08/28/2015): Lil Wayne brought out everyone from Big Freedia to August Alsina at his first-ever Lil Weezyana Fest in New Orleans. After showing an extended spotlight on some of the cities trailblazing veteran artists, Weezy made good on (mostly) reuniting the Hot Boys (though B.G.'s absence was definitely felt) and even brought out Master P to the tune of "Make 'Em Say Uhh!" The big reveal though came late in the night and mired the live stream in controversy after reports that Apple Music threatened Tidal with a hefty lawsuit if Drake's music was featured at any point. Drake ended up coming out anyway and the Tidal stream went dead for minutes on end (thankfully we got some footage ourselves).
Watch some of the highlights from the show below and check back soon for more updates.

Lil Wayne's inaugural Weezyana Fest is officially underway. The festival is going down right now at Bold Sphere Music at Champions Square in New Orleans, and the question for a while now has been, who can we expect to perform? Obviously Weezy himself is the headliner, but can we really count on a full-fledged Hot Boys reunion as promised? How about a Jeezy or T-Pain appearance? Tune into the Tidal stream right here (if you're a subscriber) to find out and look out for impending recaps from the show if not.
