Lil Wayne Walks Off Stage & Hints At Quitting His Joint Tour With Blink-182 [UPDATED]

Lil Wayne Walks Off Stage & Hints At Quitting His Joint Tour With Blink 182

Lil Wayne is currently on a North American tour with Blink-182, but it looks like Wayne may already be quitting after 8 shows in for not being happy with the crowd response.

Last night during their concert at the Jiffy Lube Live in Bristow, Virginia, Tunechi stopped performing his “John” song to tell the crowd the following:

“Please forgive me, but I am so not used to performing to a crowd and there’s not too many, you know, like still from… that’s not my swag. 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.”

Tune then walked off stage after 20 minutes of his 45-minute set. According to someone who was at the concert yesterday, Blink-182 also took a shot at Weezy during their set by telling the crowd: “We are going to play one more song then we are going to play more! You know why? We are contractually obligated!”

Lil Wayne Talks “Tha Carter V”, Attempting Suicide, Retirement, Young Money & More In Billboard 2018 Fall Issue

Lil Wayne Talks Tha Carter V, Attempting Suicide, Retirement, Young Money & More In Billboard 2018 Fall Issue

Lil Wayne graces the front cover of Billboard‘s Fall issue, which will be available on newsstands September 15th.

For his cover story, Weezy spoke on a lot of things including Tha Carter V, his children, tweeting, 2 Chainz’ wedding, seizures, features, Nicki Minaj, suicide, retirement, greatness, Drake, and more.

One interesting part from the story is that they reveal the outro on Tunechi‘s C5 album will be about attempting suicide and it will sample British R&B singer Sampha’s “Indecision” song:

“When he was 12, Wayne came across a gun in his mother’s house and shot himself in the chest, just missing his heart. In the past, he has called this an accident. But on the new verse he plays, Wayne admits this was a suicide attempt, undertaken after his mother told him he would no longer be allowed to rap. The track, which samples British R&B singer Sampha’s brooding but hopeful 2013 song ‘Indecision’ and will be the album’s outro, was on the original album tracklist, but Wayne added new lyrics this summer, following the suicides of designer Kate Spade and celebrity chef Anthony Bourdain.’

Also during their conversation, we get confirmation that Young Money Entertainment now solely belongs to Tune, but their distribution deal with Republic Records remains in place. You can check out some excerpts from the interview and pics from the photo shoot below!

Lil Wayne Appears On Skip And Shannon Undisputed, Addresses Retirement Tweets, Artists Supporting Him & Birdman

This morning at 9:30AM, Lil Wayne made an appearance on Fox Sports 1’s “Skip And Shannon: Undisputed” show to chat with Skip Bayless and Shannon Sharpe, which of course we already know Wayne has the theme song for.

While on the show, Weezy spoke on his retirement tweets by saying he did them after an argument with what’s going on with his Cash Money situation, explained he hasn’t deleted them as he still feels “mentally defeated”, mentioned he will never work with Birdman ever again even if he pays him what he is owed, and how it felt to have a bunch of music artists like Drake, Young Thug and Kendrick Lamar come to his defense.

Before the interview wrapped up, Tune also talked about creating the “No Mercy” song, wanting to work with Michael Jackson and Prince, why there are no such thing as “remixes” anymore, how he became a Green Bay Packers fan in New Orleans, Aaron Rodgers, the only politics to himself are his kids, LeBron James, his tattoos, Kevin Durant‘s decision to sign to the Warriors, Dwayne Wade returning to Chicago, Colin Kaepernick‘s protest, being blessed enough to never deal with racists throughout his life, being saved by a white police officer when he shot himself, not thinking there is such thing as racism anymore after seeing every race at his shows, and plenty more!

Miami Police Department Respond To Hoax Shooting At Lil Wayne’s Mansion For The Second Time In Just Over A Year

Miami Police Department Respond To Hoax Shooting At Lil Wayne's Mansion For The Second Time In Just Over A Year

A few days ago on September 2nd, the Miami police officers were called to Lil Wayne‘s crib on La Gorce Island in Florida after they received a 911 call reporting there was a shooting inside the house.

Of course when the police turned up, they found no victims and it ended up being another hoax 911 call, which is the same thing that happened to Wayne last year in March.

After the incident, Tunechi took to Twitter to thank the authorities for always being alert. The MPD (Miami Police Department) responded to Tune on their own Twitter page by saying they are glad he is okay and thanked him for the support.

You can check out a news clip of the incident after the jump below that also shows Weezy arriving to his mansion in his Bugatti!

Mack Maine, Reginae Carter & Lil Wayne Himself All Confirm He Will Not Be Retiring From Rap After His Recent Tweets

Mack Maine, Reginae Carter & Lil Wayne Himself All Confirm He Will Not Be Retiring From Rap After His Recent Tweets

Early this morning, Lil Wayne went on Twitter to say he feels “defenseless” and “mentally defeated”, as well as to say he loves us fans but he’s done with music aka he is going to retire.

As a big Tunechi fan, it’s always sad to hear Tune say words like that. The only thing I can think of that made Wayne feel like this is his current lawsuit against Cash Money Records and trying to get away from Birdman, so I hope that’s still going well.

The good news is that Weezy went back on Twitter a few hours later to tweet “I’m good y’all don’t trip”. Mack Maine event mentioned Mr. Carter isn’t the quitting type and he loves us fans too much to leave. Wayne‘s daughter Reginae also confirmed he wouldn’t be going nowhere.

In related news, Rick Ross offered to buy out Lil Wayne‘s contract from Cash Money and make him a Maybach Music Group artist, Lupe Fiasco called Wayne an inspiration for pushing every other rapper to do better, Missy Elliott said she is praying for him, and Chance The Rapper reminded him that nothing and no one in this world can defeat him.
