With Lil Wayne's plans to extend his "I Am Still Music" tour in mid-summer, SOHH hit up Young Money's Gudda Gudda to find out what life on the road is like.
Reflecting on the recently ended "I Am Still Music" tour, Gudda Gudda described the overall fan appreciation to seeing Weezy after serving nearly a year in jail in 2010.
"I was on some of the 'I Am Still Music' tour dates because I was doing a lot of shows on my own during the tour so I would try to catch as many dates as I could. I would do some shows and then go back but on the second run, I'm going to definitely be at a lot more of the shows so I'll definitely be ready for the next one," Gudda Gudda told SOHH. "Man, it definitely was more special. He was gone for a good year so when he came back, the energy was just stupid crazy. Every night had been crazy since he's been back and everybody now is ready for this [Tha] Carter IV album." (SOHH)
Gudda also gave SOHH the inside scoop on silly antics YM members pull when all together.
"[laughs] We got a bunch of clowns in Young Money and I want nothing to do with it, [laughs]," Gudda Gudda added when asked about Young Money road trip playful antics. "When we get together, there's a lot of clowning around and people acting crazy. There's a lot of chemistry and we're really like family. Everybody gets along and ain't no beefs like, 'I don't like this person' and 'I don't like that person.' Everybody gets along and we get around each other and have fun. Even though we haven't seen each other for months at a time, we get around each other and it's just like the last time. It's all love, we all having fun and we're all doing our thing." (SOHH)
Wayne plans to pick the tour back up around mid-July.
With his 10th studio album, Tha Carter IV, due out on June 21, Wayne will have little time to celebrate before heading back onstage on July 13 with a date at the Comcast Theater in Hartford, Connecticut. After spending time in arenas for the first half of the dates, Wayne will hit amphitheaters in 40 cities between July and September for the second leg. It is currently slated to wrap up with a September 11 date at the Woodlands Amphitheater in Woodlands, Texas. (MTV)
