Lil Wayne and Crew Stay Sober on Tour

Lil Wayne and Crew Stay Sober on Tour

The rapper bans alcohol backstage and on tour bus.

Published July 18, 2011

Ever since he got put on probation last year stemming from a 2008 gun charge, Lil Wayne has been legally banned from consuming alcohol.


While abstaining from booze might seem like a tall order for the rap star who once partied hard with his signature Styrofoam cup filled with syrup (promethazine with codeine drink), Weezy has reportedly been on his best behavior for his I Am Music II tour. Not only is alcohol forbidden from backstage at the shows, but his tour bus is kept dry as well.

"[We keep] a dry backstage as we are committed to keeping a safe and professional atmosphere to ensure a smoothly running tour," a rep for Wayne's tour told TMZ.

But just because the star of the show is sober doesn't mean fans have to clean up their act-- the tour venues still sell alcohol at concession.
