This Sunday, June 12th at 9pm ET/PT, get ready for something unexpected when MTV airs Lil Wayne's episode of MTV's "Unplugged" series. The New Orleans rapper is not exactly known for his acoustic sets and he'll be the first televised rap unplugged concert since Jay-Z's 2001 special. With Lil Wayne's upcoming and much-awaited ninth studio album Tha Carter IV
out in August and his talent for blending genres and pushing boundaries, it makes sense that MTV would choose to do a special on him.
But MTV Unplugged
? Aside from his voice, nothing Lil Wayne does is natural [Ed. Note: Depends on your stance on herbal supplements
]. Below you can watch a rousing performance of "Six Foot, Seven Foot" and see what I mean. Look forward to a number of renditions of tracks like "A Milli", "Lollipop", "Single", "Let the Beat Build", and the previously unheard Carter IV
track "Nightmares of the Bottom".
