Lil Wayne reportedly canceled his show mid-performance, which left a bad taste in the mouths of fans who attended the final date of his Welcome To Tha Carter Tour.
Weezy arrived in Los Angeles, California on May 13th, Saturday, to perform at The Wiltern Theatre located in Koreatown. The concert was available for live-streaming at a cost of $15 for those who were unable to attend the event in person.
Lil Wayne’s performance was scheduled to start at 9 p.m. PDT, but he didn’t appear on stage until after 10 p.m., which left fans feeling let down. A tweet from one attendee at the Wiltern concert in Los Angeles read, “Supposed to go on at 9pm its 10:10 now and no lil wayne. Where he at??!”
Dressed in a Kobe Bryant L.A. Lakers jersey, accompanied by a purple and gold baseball cap and icy sunglasses, Wayne started his set with “Mr. Carter” from his 2008 Grammy Award-winning album, Tha Carter III, as soon as he finally emerged.
After that, the performance appeared to be a success for the New Orleans Hot Boy. He went through his vast collection of songs, including “Fireman,” “Hustler Musik,” “Drop the World,” “BM J.R.,” “Let the Built Build,” “I’m Single,” “Love Me,” “Lollipop,” and many others. Furthermore, he even invited 2 Chainz on stage for a performance of “Duffle Bag Boy.”
During his performance, Wayne took a short break and let his Young Money artists Lil Twist, Yaj Kader, and Allan Cubas take over the stage to entertain the audience. However, as Cubas was about to start his second track, Wayne returned to the stage and interrupted his performance. Wayne then took the microphone and told his artists to end the show as he didn’t think they were getting enough love from the crowd.
“We appreciate it, but we ain’t about to be bending over backwards for these folks. We work too hard for this shit. We work way too hard,” Lil Wayne told Cubas before addressing the audience.
“This my muthafuckin’ artist Allan, that was Twist, that was Yaj; we are Young Money. We appreciate y’all time,” he said. Wayne then set the mic down and signalled to his crew that it was time to go.
Many fans were perplexed and believed that Wayne would return to the stage. However, they stood gazing at each other for approximately 10 minutes, with some chanting “Weezy,” until the lights came up and people were instructed to leave the venue.
“Lil Wayne is the most disrespectful rapper!” a second fan tweeted. “Yo how are you late 3 hours then do 30 minutes everyone was so supportive even tho he had no energy. Then he cus out his fans and drops the mic and leaves. The audacity l. Smdh.”
Another added: “Went to the lil wayne concert tonight. we waited 3 hours for him. then it was lit it was cool then he brought out some of his new artists along with lil twist they was whack. wayne got mad and canceled the show. im still in disbelief like he really did that. smh.”
