Ever since he made the break from Rikers back in November, we've been so hyped about Lil Wayne's inevitable trip across these United States that we could barely sleep. Or shit.
Our goggles have been locked 24/7 to Weezy's blog and Twitter feed. And this afternoon, all that obsession finally paid off when Mr. Carter himself announced his I Am Music II tour via weezythanxyou.com, writing: "Hello World! I'll be on tour with Nicki Minaj, Rick Ross and Travis Barker and Mixmaster Mike. It's good to be back out on the road performing for you guys. Doing what I love. I'll see you soon."
Nicki? Ricky? Yeah, this is a supersweet, sizzurp-y dream. See the full tour schedule after the cut, including South Florida's April 4 date at the BankAtlantic Center.
