Lil Wayne Ends Concert Early After Crowd Looks Uninterested
Lil Wayne was not having it with a Los Angeles crowd on his last show of the “Welcome To Tha Carter” tour. The rapper reportedly showed up late to The Wiltern on Saturday night (May 13), and decided to abruptly end the show after the crowd was not giving him the energy he required.
“We appreciate it, but we ain’t about to be bending over backwards for these folks,” Lil Wayne told the crowd when Allan Cubas was about to perform his second song. We work too hard for this s—, we work way too hard. This my motherf—–’ artist Allan, that was Twist, that was Yaj; we are Young Money. We appreciate y’all time.”
The rapper then put down the microphone and walked away. The crowd stood there until the house lights went up signaling the end of the concert.
In addition to Cubas, Wayne also introduced new Young Money artists Lil Twist and Yaj Kader.
Per HotNewHipHop, the show was sold out and Wayne initially sold $15 livestreams — though the livestream was canceled right before the show.
“I will never go to another Lil Wayne concert again after he arrived 3.5 hours late then performed for 30 had intermission put his new artist to perform then came out and canceled the rest of the concert because the crowd wasn’t hype enough for his new artist,” one user on social media wrote.
They added in another tweet: “Lil Wayne need to stay humble and appreciate the people who support him, canceling a show you were 3 hours late for because the crowd didn’t know your artist is insane.”
Before the start of the tour, Wayne released his album titled I Am Music in March. He also shared”Kant Nobody,” a new track recorded with the late DMX.
