Lil Wayne will launch his first tour since being released from prison on Mar. 18 in Buffalo and will stop at Nassau Coliseum on Mar. 27. His “I Am Music II” Tour, featuring Young Money protegee Nicki Minaj, Rick Ross and Travis Barker with Mixmaster Mike, will wrap up at his previously announced headlining show at The Bamboozle festival on May 1.
    
“It’s good to be back out on the road performing for you guys, doing what I love,” Weezy said in his blog announcement. “I’ll see you soon.”
    
He's been busy since he was finished doing time in Rikers on a weapons charge. In addition to appearing on Minaj's “Roman's Revenge 2.0,” Weezy recently finished the video for his new single “66 Foot 7 Foot,” the first single from the much-anticipated “Tha Carter IV,” expected to be released in the spring.
    
Ticket info hasn't been finalized, but tickets are expected to go on sale either Feb. 4 or 5 through Live Nation and livenation.com.
