There’s not much Lil Wayne hasn’t yet accomplished or achieved in his prolific career. Except for an MTV “Unplugged” performance. And on Sunday, June 12, at 9p/8c, when “MTV2 Presents: Lil Wayne Unplugged” premieres, he can cross even that off his bucket list. Wayne’s legend status is already unquestionable — he calls himself the Best Rapper Alive for a reason. But at this point in Weezy’s career, an “Unplugged” performance is a nice thing to say you have.
Lil Wayne’s “Unplugged” set list draws from his exhaustive repertoire of albums and mixtapes and even includes a cover of TuPac’s “Hail Mary.” Wayne employs a full band on an intimate soundstage, totally transforming the tracks, augmenting tried-and-true classics with a fuller yet somehow more intimate sound — and no Auto-Tune. The show feels like it’s just as much about Wayne as it is his work. But don’t take our word for it; Wayne’s never really needed anyone else’s help to convince you of his greatness.
