Tidal Is Streaming Lil Wayne's "Lil Weezyana Fest" Despite Birdman's Reported Lawsuit

Birdman is currently suing Tidal for streaming Wayne's 'Free Weezy Album.'

No worries if you're unable to make it down to New Orleans next week for Lil Wayne's first annual "Lil Weezyana Fest," because Tidal is going to be streaming the entire show on its site. It makes sense that Tidal would have the rights to stream the show after Wayne announced a new deal with the service and Jay Z earlier in the summer.

Tidal has carved out a nice niché in the streaming game with their live-streamed concerts, and have already pulled off successful shows with Jay's "B Sides" concert, Jeezy​'s TM101 Anniversary show, and more. Of course, the pending lawsuit from Birdman against Jay and Tidal for hosting Wayne's Free Weezy Album does cloud things with the situation, but Tidal is still promoting Wayne's show anyways. The concert, which will also feature a reunion from The Hot Boys, is set to raise money to benefit victims from Hurricane Katrina, which hit New Orleans 10 years ago. The exclusive stream of the show on Tidal will take place on Aug. 28.
