According to a report from Billboard, the rapper, Lil’ Wayne, is bailing on St. Louis after a skirmish with the police and hotel staff. Currently, the Tha Carter V rapper is touring around North America with the 90s and early 2000s pop-punk sensations, Blink-182.
Lil’ Wayne took to his Twitter on the 14th of September to announce that he was bailing on his show in St. Louis after getting kicked out of his Ritz-Carlton hotel, circumstances in which the authorities were intimately involved.
“Sorry, not doing the show tonight in St Louis,” the rapper began, stating that the police arrived and he had to leave. Initially, the rapper was scheduled to put on a show at the city’s Live Nation-operated Hollywood Casino Amphitheater.
While Lil’ Wayne said he was kicked out and had to leave, the Ritz-Carlton did not release a statement to the media at this time. Earlier this year, in July, Lil’ Wayne appeared as though he was going through some troubles again when he insinuated the crowds just weren’t thick enough to his liking.
The rapper said on his Twitter account that the crowds just weren’t “for him.”
The rapper said on his Twitter account that it might’ve been his last stop on the tour, however, he later said he’d continue. The next stop for Lil’ Wayne and Blink-182 is in Cincinnati’s Riverbend Music Center on the 16th of September.
As fans of the iconic rapper know, he spent the better part of a decade battling Birdman in a court dispute over contractual obligations. For years, Lil Wayne’s album, Tha Carter V, was postponed, however, he finally released it last year much to fanfare.
Reportedly, Lil’ Wayne has developed a close relationship with Travis Barker, the drummer for Blink-182. Travis is intimately involved in the hip-hop scene and has been for years, collaborating with hip-hop artists and DJs alike.
Earlier this year, Blink found themselves facing difficulties again when a shooting occurred in El Paso, Texas, with the band just a few miles away from where it happened.
