Rapper Lil Wayne wants to become the first hip-hop star to be handed his own Las Vegas residency.
The Lollipop hitmaker insists he will never give up performing and is adamant he will still be touring when he hits retirement age.

Wayne even dreams of following in the footsteps of singers including Celine Dion, Cher and Sir Elton John by creating his own Sin City extravaganza.

He tells MTV News, “I plan on touring forever, actually. Probably when I’m, like, 50, I might be like, ‘Let’s go, gimme some dates’.

“I actually plan on being one of those artists, with all the music and all the work I’m putting out, I believe that later on down the line, I can do Vegas. I can be the first hip-hop artist to do Vegas every night. That’s the plan.”
