Lil Wayne was supposed to perform with his Hip-Hop group Hot Boys but had to cancel it after a shooting took place outside the venue.
Arguably the most-anticipated reunion in Hip-Hop has to be postponed after a shooting outside the venue. The reunion that includes Lil Wayne, B.G., Juvenile and Mannie Fresh was slated to take place February 18 at New Orleans' Dream nightclub for NBA All-Star Weekend but shootings forced it to be canceled.
According to MTV News, the show was due to commence in the morning but few hours before that an unknown gunman opened fire, causing two 24-year-old women and a 26-year-old man who were standing on the sidewalk to be injured. They were rushed to hospital but later said to be recovering for the injuries were not life-threatening.
None of the Hot Boys members was present at the scene when the shooting took place. When MTV approached Lil Wayne to ask about the continuation of their first show together in 7 years, the rapper said that it's "only a phone call away".
Hot Boys was formed in 1997 with Turk as the original member, but because he is currently incarcerated, Fresh fills in his space.
