Whatever you were doing, and wherever you were doing it, will likely come rushing back like a tidal wave at this year's Lil WeezyAna Fest in New Orleans. Though a full list of guests for this year’s proceedings hasn't been announced, Weezy shared a Carter III-nodding flyer Tuesday. Guests on the critically lauded 2008 album included Jay Z, T-Pain, Babyface, Busta Rhymes, and more. Two tracks—"Comfortable" and the seriously fucking great "Let the Beat Build"—boasted production from Graduation-era Kanye West.
Tickets for the Aug. 25 festival, set to go down at Bold Sphere Music at Champions Square, are now on sale and start at $65. Previous incarnations of the New Orleans festival have featured special guests like Gucci Mane, Big Freedia, 2 Chainz, and Drake.
Weezy's most recent release was Dedication 6: Reloaded back in January. At the time of this writing, the status of the profoundly delayed Tha Carter V remains a mystery. The last we heard from Birdman, the album was "without a doubt" being released this year. Time will tell.
