Lil Wayne Steps in for Cardi B at Neon Desert

AUSTIN – The Grammy Award-winning and oft-labeled “Best Rapper Alive” Lil Wayne will now help headline Neon Desert in El Paso this Memorial Day weekend.

This performance marks a long-awaited return to the region after the rapper last performed in El Paso in January of 2016, which was actually the very first time Lil Wayne ever performed in El Paso as a solo artist.

With regard to the recent cancellation of Cardi B’s upcoming summer tour dates due to her pregnancy, including Neon Desert, the ScoreMore Shows team has recruited some of today’s biggest hip-hop acts to take her place on the main stage.

 “We love Cardi B. We love the album. Our ScoreMore team was so excited for the opportunity to work together. Unfortunately, it won’t be on these shows, but the reason as to why is something that should truly be celebrated as we wish Cardi B, Offset and their entire family nothing but the best as they embark on this exciting new chapter,” said Sascha Stone Guttfreund, President and cofounder of ScoreMore Shows.

“We hope to work with her in the future. It is unfortunate it just didn’t work out this go-round, but we’re so lucky that Lil Wayne is ready to rock with us.”

Passes to Neon Desert can be purchased online. For more information and to stay up to date on all Neon Desert news, please visit the following channels:
