Lil Wayne hosted a launch party for his Beats Pro headphones at the Playhouse nightclub in Los Angeles.
In attendance were, of course, Dr. Dre and Interscope head honcho Jimmy Iovine. The event was full of star power, however, with Wiz Khalifa, A-Track, DJ Drama, Machine Gun Kelly, French Montana, and more.
He briefly took the stage at the event, before partying the night away with his YMCMB family.
The collaboration with Beats offers fans a window into his creative process, by allowing them to hear music as he does in his head, since he uses the earphones to write music, and lyrics. As a longtime supporter of Beats Electronics, Wayne has used Beats by Dre headphones to listen to his favorite artists, and will continue to do so, now the he has his own line. “Was bangin dat Future & Bob Marley in the lil tunechi Beats,btw,” the 29-year-old tweeted Thursday (Sept. 6).
This latest business venture is one of many that will help to expand the Young Money leader’s brand, which now includes his TRUKFIT clothing line, and Supra sneakers.
After the event, Wayne released his new song “No Worries,” which he performed at the VMAs, on iTunes.
