It turns out that rapper Lil Wayne isn’t as hyped about his co-headlining summer tour with Blink-182 as the springtime announcement made it seem to be. At least, that appeared to be the case on Thursday when the rapper told the audience at the tour’s stop at Bristow, VA’s Jiffy Lube Live that he’s considering dropping out of the tour before ending his performance drastically short.
According to reports, Lil Wayne was only a few songs into his scheduled performance on Thursday when he cut his DJ off from spinning music mid-song to address fans in the audience.
“I just want the people to know, if you’re wondering,” Weezy said to the crowd almost out of nowhere. “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, I’m not sure how long I’m gonna be able to do this tour, but make some noise for Blink-182!”
The rapper continued to state that Thursday’s show might be his last night on the tour before his DJ returning to playing the music. Lil Wayne didn’t continue his set for too much longer, as he left the stage after just four songs.

The tour’s next stop is scheduled for Saturday, July 13th with a performance at Darling’s Waterfront Pavilion in Bangor, ME. Both artists have yet to further address Lil Wayne’s surprising announcement as of Friday morning.
At least Lil Wayne has his Lil WeezyAna Fest in September to look forward to.
UPDATE [12:50 PM]: After news of Lil Wayne’s confusing mid-set speech on Thursday spread across the Internet on Friday morning, the rapper took to his Twitter to assure fans that he is not leaving the tour.
“Yesterday was krazy!” Lil Wayne shared in a new statement. “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!”
