*Rapper Lil Wayne wants to become the first hip-hop star to be handed his own Las Vegas residency.

The artist says he’ll never give up performing and will still be touring when he hits retirement age. But in the near future, his goal is to follow in the footsteps of Celine Dion, Cher and Sir Elton John by creating his own Sin City extravaganza.

“I actually plan on being one of those artists, with all the music and all the work I’m putting out, I believe that later on down the line, I can do Vegas,” he tells MTV News.

“I can be the first hip-hop artist to do Vegas every night. That’s the plan.”
