The Young Money boss seems to be unhappy with his current touring situation with blink-182. On Thursday (July 11), the rapper and rock band’s joint tour stopped at Jiffy Lube Live in Bristow, Virginia. According to fans, Weezy only played 20 minutes before leaving the stage and telling the audience that he may be pulling out of the tour.
“Hold on, I just want the people to know, if you’re wondering, please forgive me, but I am so not used to performing to a crowd and there’s not too many, you know, like still, that’s not my swag,” Weezy told the crowd.
The lack of fans in the venue when he performs may be the source of his frustration. “I’m not sure how long I’m going to be able to do this tour,” he added. “But make some noise for Blink 182 for including me anyway. This might be my last night though, let’s go.”
According to CNN, Wayne was only on stage for about 15 or 20 minutes and left after performing only four songs.
“I think Lil Wayne just quit the Blink 182 tour. (Yes, that’s the same show),” tweeted WAMU 88.5 reporter Jordan Pascale. “Played for like 20 mins.”
Another Twitter user added, “Wow , @LilTunechi just said this maybe his last night in the Blink 182 tour. Cited the lack of rap fans/his fans.”

But it seems that his frustrations were only temporary. On Friday (July 12), Weezy took to Twitter to assure fans that he won’t be quitting the tour.
“Yesterday was krazy!” tweeted Wayne. “But I want all my fans to know I won’t be quitting this tour! I’m having too much fun with my bros blink-182. Bangor,ME See you tomorrow!”
Wayne and blink-182 kicked off their co-headlining North American tour on June 27 in Columbus, Ohio. The 38-city trek is scheduled to hit Toronto, Atlanta, Houston, Los Angeles, and more before wrapping Sept. 16 in Cincinnati.
