Young Money's Gudda Gudda has confirmed recent reports that a new Young Money & Cash Money tour will kick off next month in support of Lil Wayne's Rebirth and the group's compilation album.
According to Gudda, the tour will begin around mid-December.
"Definitely got a tour starting, supposed to be anywhere in between the 10th and the 14th of next month," he explained in an interview. "Its a Young Money/Cash Money tour. I ain't even catch the dates on it yet, I just know we goin' out on tour, when the albums drop. I'm pretty sure it's gonna be either as big or bigger [than last summer's tour.] We don't take two steps back, you know every time we do something we try to keep moving forward, more progess every time we do something. So, definitely might be either bigger, if not on the same level as one of the others. But its definitely gonna be a big tour." (New Lil Wayne)

"*ATTN RT TO ALL LILWAYNE 'REBIRTH' AND THE YM ALLSTARS ALBUM HAS BEEN PUSHED BACK TO DEC 22..CMB/YM," Baby wrote via Twitter on Thursday (November 19).

Wayne's last tour made headlines in August when 23 fans were arrested on multiple criminal charges in New York.
Twenty-three people were arrested at the Lil' Wayne concert last night including a 16-year-old from Cheektowaga, charged with trespassing for allegedly jumping a fence to get into the concert venue, nine people busted on marijuana charges, a ten year-old busted on possession of alcohol, a 23 year-old charged with hitting a female fan and injuring a security guard, a 26 year-old arrested for disorderly conduct and swearing in public and other arrests including criminal mischief and destruction of property.

Wayne's tour profits for 2008 to 2009 placed him ahead of both Jay-Z and Kanye West.
Seventy-eight Lil Wayne headlining arena and amphitheater concerts in North America from Dec. 14, 2008, through Sept. 6, 2009, grossed approximately $42 million and drew nearly 804,000 fans, according to Lil Wayne tour producer and tour business manager Shawn Gee. The second highest-grossing rap tour that Billboard has tracked was Jay-Z's 2008 jaunt with Mary J. Blige, which grossed $34.6 million and drew 310,694 concertgoers to 28 shows, according to Billboard Boxscore. Kanye West's 2008 Glow In the Dark tour comes in third, having pulled in $30.8 million from 49 concerts that attracted 507,853 fans. (Billboard)
No further details on the tour have been revealed as of now.
