I previously posted last month that Lil Wayne will be headlining his own solo tour in Australia, now Weezy has postponed these shows due to scheduling conflicts. Wayne was supposed to perform in Perth, Adelaide and Melbourne, but his his promoter sent out this statement earlier today:
“Lil Wayne will be unable to arrive in Australia as early as originally planned, therefore regrettably having to postpone his solo performances.”
The promoter also said Tunechi will return to Australia for his own headlining tour sometime in 2012, but for the people who purchased tickets to these shows, you will automatically be refunded. Tune will still be performing in the Outback for Eminem’s shows at Melbourne Etihad Stadium on December 1st and at Sydney Football Stadium on December 2nd.
Tyler, The Creator recently chopped it up with MTV about meeting Lil Wayne, wanting to give a beat he produced to Weezy, and supporting Tunechi‘s skateboarding.
Tyler has dreams of working with Wayne, but he hasn’t yet built up the courage to tap his manager Christian Clancy to help put the plan in motion. “I actually have this beat that I want him on, but I was too scared to get it to Clancy to get it to them, but Wayne’s cool.”
“I wanted to kinda fan out and shit,” Tyler admitted, “but he gave me a speech about how happy he was that I won a VMA and that seeing my mom go crazy kinda made him feel like he won it too, because that shit was real as fuck.”
While the Goblin rapper and producer was taken aback by Weezy’s props, he was disappointed that he didn’t get to speak his piece and talk about his favorite Weezy mixtape. “He sat there for three minutes giving me a speech, and I’m like, ‘I just wanted to say that Da Drought 3 was my shit,’ and I couldn’t,” Tyler said with disappointment.
“It’s just weird when people from a different world come into our world,” he said. “But then again, he’s just fuckin’ having fun. That’s what people don’t get and shit. He’s learning, and I think it’s cool that he takes the time out of his day to just do some fuckin’ shit that makes him happy for the day. I just wish people would realize shit like that.”
