Lil Wayne Comes to West Palm Beach With T.I. and Tyga With America's Most Wanted Music Festival

The man most loathed man in South Florida -- after Fidel Castro, of course -- has got to be Lil Wayne. So maybe there's some logic in having us all haul all out to Cruzan Amphitheater to catch Young Money's 2013 America's Most Wanted Music Festival -- the farthest venue in the tricounty area from the boys at American Airlines Arena.

It's been a truly traumatic year for the rapper, suffering multiple epileptic episodes and a sizzurp addiction that nearly sent him to his grave. He also got a whole city to fart in his general direction after talking unforgivable trash on our beloved Chris Bosh. But even with all that drama, come summertime, Tunechi's headlining the fest in a whopping 40 cities in the U.S. and 14 in Europe. For a dude on death's doorstep last month, that seems like something a mother would advise against. But we're not complaining. We'll be there with bells on to see the shit-show in West Palm Beach.

Last year, the tour featured Drake and other guests like J. Cole, French Montana, Waka Flocka Flame, 2 Chainz, and Meek Mill. For 2013, Wayne's bringing out T.I. The word is, he was planning on having Future along but ended up with Tyga. This works for us, because dropping it to the floor to "Rack City" is far preferable to poppin' it to the wobbly-voiced man-of-the-hour Future.

Tickets go on sale tomorrow, April 26, at 10 p.m. on livenation.com. We advise you resist any temptation to invite along Burnie or smuggle in rotten tomatoes.
