Love him or hate him, Lil Wayne is at the top of the entertainment game, and he’s about to bring it to Oklahoma City. The rap superstar behind multiplatinum-selling albums (Tha Carter III) and the powerhouse hip hop recording label Young Money Entertainment (with includes Drake and Nicki Minaj among its contracted artists) takes a break from making tabloid headlines and dissing other rappers for a show at 7 p.m. Wednesday, Aug. 21, at the Chesapeake Energy Arena, 100 W. Reno Ave., Oklahoma City. Special guests T.I. and 2 Chainz open for Lil Wayne. Tickets are $49.75-$89.75, available at www.chesapeakearena.com. The “2013 America’s Most Wanted Music Festival” looks on track to at least match his 2009 tour, which took in about $42 million and made Lil Wayne into one of the most recognizable names in music. Where will this next tour take him? No one ever called Lil Wayne predictable.
