Though no official announcements from MTV have been made … rap superstar Lil Wayne is said to be performing at this year’s Video Music Awards!

Wayne’s manager Cortez Bryant spilled the beans to during a recent interview, also revealing that Tha Carter IV will be available on iTunes “immediately after” his VMA performance.

The long-awaited album is complete and Bryant confirmed appearances from Nas, Jadakiss, and Tech N9ne. “It’s done for the most part, [around] thirty songs [that] I need to carve down to twelve to sixteen, with four or so bonus tracks,” he explained.


The 2011 MTV VMAs are set to air live from the Nokia Theater in Los Angeles on August 28th at 9 pm. And with the show just a little over a month away, additional performers, as well as nominees and presenters, should be announced in the coming days/weeks!
