Maybe Lil Wayne doesn’t hate New York all that much. Young Tune is one of the debut guests on MTV’s new show, The Show with Vinny.
As one of the many spin offs from MTV’s hit series, Jersey Shore, Vinny Guadagnino is the host of a new talk show that takes place in Staten Island at his home with his family. Hell of a premise, huh?
For those who watched Jersey Shore, Vinny was a self-professed mama’s boy whose mother always came to the shore house to cook massive meals for all of the roommates. That doesn’t change on this show as the talk show has Wayne visits Vinny’s crib in Staten Island and eventually a nearby skatepark.
If you remember, Lil Wayne didn’t have some nice things to say about the city of New York and with good reason. Tunechi spent a year of his life locked away in Rikers Island prison for a gun charge he caught in the city and went on to say he didn’t like being in New York. That comment caused a firestorm of criticism for his distaste for the birth of Hip-Hop.
Who knew it would take a kid from Jersey Shore to bring him back? Check out the trailer for The Show With Vinny coming soon to MTV.
