Wiz Khalifa’s third annual Under the Influence of Music Tour kicked off last week, and there’s plenty of star power on the nationwide show. With Jeezy, Rich Homie Quan, Ty Dolla $ign, DJ Drama and more, fans will be treated to a lineup full of heavy hitters. But there’s one name missing from that list who was slated to be on the summer tour: Tyga.
“He didn’t tell me at all,” Wiz told Power 99 in Philadelphia of Tyga’s exit from the bill. “His people was just like, ‘Nah, we ain’t gonna be on the tour.’”
Not only was he disappointed with the fact he dropped out, but also with the way it was handled. “I’m the type of person, I talk to people when I want to,” the Pittsburgh native added. “We cool, that’s the homie, and that was just a wack move.”
“I felt like that was just corny, man,” he said. “We’re better than that, ’cause at the end of the day, you don’t say album and a movie just to sound like you got something to do ’cause I did my album before my tour and I’m shooting a movie as soon as I get home off the tour, and I got a son, too. At the end of the day, what do you want to do with your life?”
Despite Wiz’s clear frustration, Tyga sent out a tweet suggesting that there’s no hard feelings.
@wizkhalifa that's my dawg 4 life

As for that album that Wiz was saying he finished before the tour? Blacc Hollywood is set to drop on August 19, and MTV premiered a new track from the disc, “Stayin Out All Night,” on Monday (July 28).
And then there’s the video for the Wiz, Juicy J and Ty Dolla collab “Shell Shocked,” from the soundtrack to the upcoming “Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles” movie, which also dropped on Monday. You can watch below.’
