Lil Wayne debunked rumors that he is quitting his US tour with Blink-182 after he abruptly walked off stage in the middle of a show. The 36-year-old rapper was dissatisfied with the size of the crowd in Virginia and made this known mid-set.
The rapper was scheduled to perform with Welsh pop-punk band Neck Deep and Blink-182 when he requested for the music to be stopped and addressed the crowd.
“I just want the people to know if you were wondering,” Wayne said, “please forgive me but I am so not used to performing to a crowd and there’s not too many… 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 for including me anyway.”
He did one more song after adding “this might be my last night” and reportedly walked off stage.
Lil Wayne has now come out to assure his fans that he is not quitting the tour which is expected to run till September.
“Yesterday was krazy!” the rapper wrote on Twitter. “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!”

upset bc the crowds were too small? IF that’s it, sounds like someone isn’t appreciative of the fans that WERE there for only him. wow ??

If he thought the crowds were small there he’s going to be THOROUGHLY disappointed in Bangor, ME. ? Here in Maine it’s beautiful but it’s more densely populated by trees than people
