Don’t look now, but the 2011 MTV Video Music Awards are fast approaching. The annual bash now has its first confirmed performer — rapper Lil Wayne, whose album ‘Tha Carter IV’ drops the day after the ceremony.

Weezy’s manager, Cortez Bryant, tells Billboard that his client will perform on the award show, set for Aug. 28. He assures listeners there will be no further delays that would once again push back the album release date. “Aug. 29, it’s not changing,” he says.

Bryant also provides a few additional details about the album: “It’s done for the most part, [around] thirty songs [that] I need to carve down to twelve to sixteen, with four or so bonus tracks.”

MTV’s empire of networks has been good to Wayne this year, airing his Unplugged special on MTV2 in June. The rapper took home Best Hip-Hop Video in 2008 for ‘Lollipop,’ and we expect his clips for ‘6 Foot 7 Foot’ and ‘John’ have a good shot at earning Moonmen this year.

This year’s VMAs air live from Los Angeles. The nominees will likely be announced within the next couple of weeks. Last year, Lady Gaga set a record with 13 nominations and wore the infamous meat dress when she accepted Video of the Year for ‘Bad Romance.’
