Lil Wayne returns to the UK in June for the first time in more than a decade
Rapper Lil Wayne is set to perform his first UK show in almost a decade-and-a-half, after visa issues prevented him from previously entering the country, Sky reports.
According to the report, the multi-Grammy winning rapper will perform at the Strawberries & Creem festival in Cambridge in June.
In December 2020, Lil Wayne, real name Dwayne Michael Carter, admitted possessing a .45 calibre gun and six rounds of ammunition after his private plane was searched on arriving in Miami from California a year prior.
That was despite already being a convicted felon on another weapons charge, but he avoided jail by posting a $250,000 bail.
He was later pardoned by then president, Donald Trump.
In 2011, Carter’s visa was cancelled by the UK over his convictions, meaning his tour that year had to be called off.
