Weather may have kept fans away from blink-182 and Lil Wayne’s stop in Virginia, but Weezy took the reduced crowd size personally.
When blink-182 and Lil Wayne announced a co-headlining tour, many people wondered if it would work out. In truth, I thought it was a great idea. Blink’s Travis Barker, generally regarded as one of rock’s greatest drummers, started reaching new audiences in the mid-2000s with viral videos of himself drumming along with hip hop songs. And much of the Soundcloud rap world is built on a foundation of not just hip hop but also emo and pop-punk.
The tour seemed to be going alright up until last night in rainy Bristow, Virginia. XXL found this tweet containing video of Weezy addressing the crowd.
FULL VIDEO of #lilwayne saying this might be his last night on the #blink182 tour. He says "please forgive me I'm not used to performing in front of a crowd that looks like this" He says he doesn't know how much longer he can do this tour.

I mean this seems okay. His attitude doesn’t seem too negative about the circumstances. But a short while later he reportedly left the stage entirely after about only 20 minutes of stage time. More fans hit Twitter to blast Lil Wayne for leaving the stage after an abbreviated set.
lil wayne walked off the stage last night after like 4 songs because the crowd was “too small” and “not his swag” and that it might be his last night on the tour after people have already paid to see him. the tour JUST started, what a bitch

We’re still waiting for official word from the blink and Weezy camps. Hopefully, like the storm in Virigina, those whole business will simply blow over.
