In addition, the tour announcement comes before The Recording Academy’s Black Music Collective pre-Grammy event, where Lil Wayne will be honored with the prestigious Global Impact Award for his individual and professional accomplishments in the music business.

Sylvia Rhone, CEO of Epic Records, is also among the honorees, along with Dr. Dre and Missy Elliott. The Hollywood Palladium will open its doors to the awards show on February 2, one day before the 65th Annual Grammy Awards.
