Come January 27, 2018, while most of the world is in Grammy mode, Lil Wayne will be front and center at the so-called “sexiest awards show of the year” a.k.a. the AVN Awards.
The AVN Awards, which for those of you unaware are like the Oscars for the Porn industry, have typically called on hip-hop acts to perform at their annual award show over the past couple years, and it looks like they’re keeping it the same in 2018. After Tyga ripped that stage in 2013, and Wake Flocka and Flo Rida performed these past couple of years, next up in 2018 will be non-other than Lil Wayne. TMZ reports that Young Money CEO Lil Wayne will be taking the stage at next year’s AVN Awards.
The soon-to-be 34-year-old event will commence at The Joint inside the Hard Rock Hotel & Casino Las Vegas.
“We are extremely pleased to have Lil Wayne performing at the 2018 AVN Awards,” AVN president Tony Rios said in a statement. “Like many of the talent within the adult industry, he is also a successful entrepreneur having opened his own company Young Money Records. He’s an amazing addition to this year’s show and we look forward to having him.”
Lil Wayne added, “This is one of those bucket list moments for me. I’m super stoked to be a part of the awards show this year.”
The performance will be one of the first big events where Weezy will get the opportunity to showcase material from Dedication 6, which drops Christmas Day.
Fans of either industry who aren’t close to the Vegas area will be able to stream in, as the show is part of the AVN Adult Entertainment Expo presented by MyFreeCams, scheduled January 24-27 at the iconic Vegas venue.
Adult superstars Angela White and Harli Lotts are scheduled to host the event as well.
