Lil Wayne Plots Performance With Jay-Z, Tour, Hot Boys Reunion

October 24, 2008 10:51 AM ET

Lil Wayne revealed that he and Jay-Z will perform Tha Carter III cut "Mr. Carter" for the first time live at the Power 105.1's Powerhouse concert in New York on October 28th. "I know the 'Mr. Carter' thing is supposed to be a go," Lil Wayne said. "That's the whole reason I think I was doing [the concert]." Weezy was less sure of a "Swagger Like Us" reunion with Jay-Z, Kanye West and T.I., however. Wayne is also planning on peeling himself out of the studio to go on tour. "It will be a big tour, live band," he said. "I'll be playing with them. We're still trying to find people to get on the tour, but it shouldn't be a problem." M.I.A. had planned to join Wayne on tour, but her pregnancy has forced him to find other tourmates. The ever-busy new father is also planning on reuniting with his Hot Boys co-horts, Juvenile and B.G., as the pair joined Wayne in the studio recently.

“Whoomp! (There It Is)”

Tag Team | 1993

Cecil Glenn — a.k.a., "D.C." — was a cook at Magic City, a nude dance club in Atlanta, when he first heard women shout "Whoomp — there it is!" Inspired by the party chant, he and partner Steve "Roll'n" Gibson wrote a song around it. Undaunted by label rejections, they borrowed $2,500 from Glenn's parents and pressed 800 singles, which quickly sold out in the Atlanta area. A record deal came soon after. Glenn said the song was meant for positive partying. "If you're going to say 'Whoomp there it is,' and you're doing something negative, we'd rather it not have come out of your mouth."
