TORONTO — Drake will make his VMA debut next month when he performs at the 2010 MTV Video Music Awards, and the Thank Me Later star is already thinking about making a grand entrance.
He has some history to compete with — it’s hard to beat Diddy arriving via yacht or T-Pain riding an elephant into the festivities.
Drake is still wrapping his thoughts around some ideas, but one plan he wishes he could execute is to step onto the VMA red carpet with Lil Wayne.
“That would be the illest moment,” Drake said while taking a break from a VMA promotional shoot. “Mob through. The whole Young Money. … Nobody knew about it. We just all show up. … Or we could get him out for a day. And even if he had to wear a jumpsuit or something.”
Wayne began his one-year prison sentence for a 2007 gun charge March 8. Unfortunately for Drake, according to prison records accessed by MTV News in July, Lil Wayne has a projected release date of November 4, two months after the VMAs, which will take place September 12 in Los Angeles.
Drake, Kanye West, and Florence and the Machine were announced earlier this week as this year’s VMA performers.
The 27th annual MTV Video Music Awards will be broadcast live from the Nokia Theatre in Los Angeles on September 12 at 9 p.m. ET. Fans can go to VMA.MTV.com (or text VMA to 97979 if they are Verizon subscribers) to vote for the winners from now through September 12.
