As nice as this is he’s sure to have at least some trouble when he DOES actually apply, based on how they’ve treated other rappers.
A report that Lil Wayne has been banned from touring the UK and Europe is false, his rep has said.
Reports had claimed that Weezy’s British visa was denied due to his criminal record. The 6 Foot, 7 Foot rapper spent eight months in prison last year on weapons charges.
But now a spokesperson for the Young Money boss has told our US Team that the star is yet to file a visa application, as no UK dates are confirmed as yet. “No visa was ever filed, nor were there any tour dates announced or tickets sold,” Weezy’s tour rep said.
“Lil Wayne is currently headlining his I Am Still Music Tour across the US and Canada with plans to extend the tour through North America this summer. We hope to bring the I Am Still Music Tour to the UK in the latter half of the year.”
When Wayne does apply for a UK visa, he is likely to have a battle on his hands as British immigration officials don’t look kindly on criminal convictions. Snoop Dogg was banned from entering the country in 2007 due to drugs and weapons charges and was forced to cancel European tour dates. However, the ban was eventually overturned and he performed at last year’s Glastonbury Festival.
All joking aside we hope Wayne gets his visa so that the good “folks” (see, potential baby momma’s) across the pond get a chance to experience Weezy F. Baby in all his felonious splendor…pause.
