Why is Blink-182 Going on Tour with Lil Wayne?

The band will be hitting the road this Summer with Lil Wayne and Welsh pop-punk outfit Neck Deep. Blink shared a video on Facebook that features none other than Lil Wayne assisting in the lead vocals. In the video, the rapper can be seen splitting vocal duties with fellow singer and bassist Mark Hoppus, bouncing back and forth between “What’s My Age Again” and “A Milli”.

While some people have mentioned their excitement for two-for-one night of nostalgia, blink’s decision to team up with Lil Wayne has been met with some disdain from fans long-time fans. The vast majority of comments on social media range from outright disgust to utter confusion.

Naturally, people were quick to reference founding band member, Tom DeLonge, who parted ways with blink in 2015.

Whether or not you agree with blink’s decision to team with Lil Wayne, it sure will make for an interesting show.
