Lil Wayne burst into the New Orleans music scene in the late '90s, quickly getting the attention of Cash Money Records, where he signed his first record deal as a member of the all-star Hot Boys (with Juvenile, B.G., and Turk). His first solo album, Tha Block is Hot, came out in 1999 and for nearly a decade Lil Wayne rode the wave at the top of the hip-hop charts. He's coming to Billings on May 23rd at First Interstate Arena at MetraPark.
