Lil Wayne’s Demands Private Jets, Police Escorts For Shows

Judging by some of his run-ins with the law while on the road, you’d think Lil Wayne wouldn’t need much on his tour bus besides a handful of illicit substances, a keg of syrup and assorted handguns. But according to a purported tour rider (on official-seeming Young Money stationary) from one of his outings posted on The Smoking Gun, Weezy is way more complicated than we would have imagined.

Here are some of the requirements for keeping Team Wayne fueled up and ready to go:

– Fifty percent of his appearance fee has to be paid, in cash, on the day of the show. No personal checks!

– Fifty free tickets within first 10 rows at promoter’s expense and 25 backstage passes.

– Accommodations must be in a five-star hotel, in a presidential suite of 1,000 square feet or better, with a living room and bedroom separated by a door.

– A seven- to eight-passenger Learjet must ferry Wayne to and from the show.

– Two clean and comfortable dressing rooms without “oder,” two bottles of “Hennessey XO (XO Only!!!)”

– Under the “Security Rider” portion, which cautions “Pay Close Attention!!!,” Weezy demands a police escort of two vehicles/motorcycles to and from the airport, hotel, venue and back to hotel, as well as a “mandatory!” phalanx of four off-duty police officers to escort him to and from the same.

– On international dates, the requirements are even more stringent, with a request for four 24-hour armed security guards for the entire stay.
