It appears UK Lil Wayne fans will have to wait a little longer to see the dread head rapper live in action.
Lil Wayne has reportedly scrapped his successful “I Am Still Music Tour” for unknown reasons. While it’s been reported UK officials denied Wayne a visa in light of his one year prison sentence on weapons charges he served for the majority of last year, there’s been no confirmation on those allegations. Wayne, along with Nicki Minaj, Rick Ross and drummer Travis Barker have been attacking the states on their trek which is set to wrap up on May 1st in New Jersey during the Bamboozle festival.
Recently, fellow YM artist Drake joined the tour adding to a lineup that currently includes Lil Twist, Jae Millz, Shanele and President Mack Maine. Last month Wayne elaborated on the feeling of having his entire camp on the road with him.
“That’s where I get my little oomph from, when I bring my whole clique out there, and I want them to be heard,” Wayne told MTV News. “I remember when [Bad Boy] had Total, Biggie, Ma$e, Junior Mafia, all of them other people. Then you think of the Roc. We’re more so like the Roc. ’Cause Jay always had artists the world didn’t know, but he put them on the proper song and everybody knows the song. But this time around, I want you to know the song, I want you to know the person, I want you to know us. And it’s no secret about it, I got the toughest team in the game right now and later.”
