Lil Wayne Issues A Statement About Why He Never Performed Live At The Mike Tyson vs. Roy Jones Jr. Fight

Lil Wayne Issues A Statement About Why He Never Performed Live At The Mike Tyson vs Roy Jones Jr Fight

The reason Lil Wayne never performed live at Mike Tyson’s comeback fight against Roy Jones Jr. on November 28th was due to an “unrelated 3rd party”.

In a statement co-issued from Triller and Weezy, there was a 3rd party who tried to involve themselves in the production process between the video-making/social-networking service and the Young Money CEO:

“Unfortunately there was an unrelated 3rd party who attempted to insert themselves in the production process between Triller and Lil Wayne the night before the event and the morning of and it unfortunately caused enough of an issue that Wayne couldn’t perform.”

However, Tunechi says he “was truly disappointed he was precluded from performing by the 3rd party” and promises to perform live at “Triller’s next fight card.”

Yesterday, Lil Wayne headlined the 14th annual A3C Music Festival & Conference at the GA Freight Depot in Atlanta, Georgia.

According to a reader of LilWayneHQ.com who was in attendance, Weezy was forced to stop the show and leave the scene just 12 minutes into his set after a huge fight broke out in the crowd.

While he was flying back to Miami, Tunechi did go on Twitter to tweet: “Hope everyone at A3C is safe!! [prayer emoji]”. The A3C Festival organizers have also released a statement on the situation:

“Sadly, there was an altercation tonight that ended Lil Wayne’s performance.
