There’s been some great entrances in the history of the MTV Video Music Awards.
Diddy arrived to the Miami show via a yacht. Eminem entered Radio City Music Hall with hundreds of look-alikes. And Jay-Z introduced the show from the top of New York City’s Chrysler Building (and we like to hope he eventually took the elevator down, right?).
So, for Drake, making his VMA debut, there’s some pressure.
But the Toronto lyricist has some grand ideas, even though one in particular–arriving with Lil Wayne–might be impossible.
“That would be the illest moment,” Drake said of walking in with the Cash Money superstar. “Mob through. The whole Young Money. … Nobody knew about it. We just all show up. … Or we could get him out for a day. And even if he had to wear a jumpsuit or something.”
Weezy, however, is currently incarcerated. The New Orleans MC is locked up in New York’s Rikers Island stemming from a 2007 arrest that he later reached a plea deal on. The deal, though, called for the rapper to spend a year behind bars.
Lil Wayne is set to be released in November. It doesn’t appear he’ll make the VMAs. But it was a grand idea.
What do you think Drake should do? Let us know in the comments section or tweet us over at, @MTVRapFix!
The 27th annual MTV Video Music Awards will be broadcast live from the Nokia Theatre in Los Angeles on September 12 at 9 p.m. ET.
