*Rapper Lil Wayne will spend his 26th birthday in the Bahamas headlining "Poppin' Bottles," a landmark concert to feature the best in hip hop, dancehall and reggae talent across U.S. and the Caribbean, reports Allhiphop.com.
The Sept. 26 event, to include Bahamian talent Daddy Whites, Golden Child, and Bobo Ken, will begin at 10 p.m. at the Bristol Wines and Spirits Grounds and is billed as an all-night celebration, according to creator Lisa "Red" Tootle of Red City Entertainment.
"This concert is quite a fusion. You have one of the leading phenomena of reggae in Buju Banton, who is a legend in his own right, and then you're taking the number one Hip-Hop artist in the world right now and you're putting them on the same stage," Tootle told the Nassau Guardian. "I think that in itself puts our concert above all others, and I say that with authority because I've been in and out of the Bahamas for the past 8 to 10 years and I've been to many, many concerts."
"Wayne is expected to be on stage by 1 or 2 a.m. and from what I understand Buju is just so excited about being a part of this show that he is expected to come out with a crazy performance," Tootle explained. "So it will be quite a night."
