Rough going for Blink-182 & Lil Wayne Tour. It started off with delays and now just two weeks in it looks like Lil Wayne may be done, or at least that's what (finger quotes) "reports" are.
Rap legend Lil Wayne and alt rock pioneers Blink-182 teamed up for one of the most unexpected pairings of the summer. The two are currently in the midst of a co-headlining tour that runs all the way through September.
While the joint tour is less than halfway done, it sounds like Lil Wayne may be 100% done. The rapper is feeling out of his element and, at their July 11 show in Virginia, he hinted it may be his last date of the tour. He complained about the crowd before reportedly leaving the stage after playing just four songs.
“Hold up, hold up,” he’s shown saying in what appears to be the middle of a song. The music cuts out as Lil Wayne apologizes to the crowd. “Please forgive me,” he says in a fan-shot video, “but I am so not used to performing to a crowd and there’s not too many- you know… that’s not my swag.”
Despite not vibing with the crowd, there appears to be no tension between Lil Wayne and Blink-182. “I’m not sure how long I’m going to be able to do this tour, but make some noise for blink-182 for including me anyway. This might be my last night though,” he admitted.
Fans at the show soon took to Twitter to say that he left the stage shortly after. About 20 minutes into his set, Weezy walked off. And by the tweets of people there, it seemed abrupt.

Although Lil Wayne cut his performance short, Blink delivered their usual performance of playing Enema Of The State in full alongside other hits and fan favorites.
