How Asia-Born, U.S.-Based Women Are Ushering In a New Big Band Era

Lil Waynemight be about to bail on his co-headlining tour with Blink-182. That’s the word according to Wayne himself.

The unlikely twosome kicked of a U.S. run in late June, which sees the alt-rock veterans perform their 20-year-old album Enema of the State in full.

During a show at Jiffy Lube Live in Bristow, VA on Thursday, however, Weezy brought the mood down a few notches when he hinted all might not be well.

“Please forgive me,” he said in a fan-filmed video doing the rounds, “but I am so not used to performing to a crowd and there’s not too many, you know, like still, 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.” He continued, “This might be my last night though, let’s go.”

The golf-loving rapper reportedly split early, leaving the stage after just four songs.

Produced by Live Nation, the North American trek kicked off in Columbus, Ohio, on June 26 and is scheduled to run through September. Next stop: Darling's Waterfront Pavilion in Bangor, Maine on Saturday night. At the time of reporting, there was no official line on Wayne’s involvement in the tour going forward.
