Lil Wayne Ended A Show After Just 30 Minutes Due To The Crowd’s Lack Of Interest For His Label’s New Artists
Who needs a good work ethic when you’re already a mega-rich, famous celebrity? I’m assuming not Lil Wayne, whose Welcome to Tha Carter tour finished up its run in Los Angeles over the weekend. The lucky people at the final show of Lil Wayne’s first full tour in four years were blessed with a set that started HOURS late. And if that wasn’t annoying enough, he quit that bitch extra early because the crowd didn’t show enough excitement for the featured new artists from his label who he brought out. Roll in late, roll out early; sounds like me on my last day of work at any retail job.
The Welcome to Tha Carter tour kicked off in Minneapolis last month and hit 28 cities, including Chicago, Toronto, Atlanta, Birmingham, Nashville, Austin, and San Francisco. And the tour ended with a WOMP WOMP during its final stop at The Wiltern in Los Angeles. If you love a show starting almost four hours late and then ending early, you would have loved the L.A. show. via Complex:
As claimed by attendees on Reddit, Twitter, and elsewhere, Weezy cut his set short on Saturday due to the audience’s reaction to an intermission performance from several artists on his Young Money roster…
“We ain’t about to be bending over backwards for these folks,” Weezy is seen saying in one clip. “We worked too hard for this shit. We worked way too hard. This is my motherfuckin’ artist Allan [Cubas], that was [Lil] Twist, that was Yaj [Kader]. We are Young Money. We appreciate y’all time.”
Here are tweets from fans who say the same thing. People didn’t love his new artists, so he threw a hissy fit and ended the show:
I will never go to another Lil Wayne concert again after he arrived 3.5 hours late then performed for 30 had intermission put his new artist to perform then came out and canceled the rest of the concert because the crowd wasn’t hype enough for his new artist. #wiltern #lilwayne pic.twitter.com/hB9u4DfHof

Hmmmm, opting not to finish a show because he felt like the people attending weren’t acting adoring enough to the people he wanted them to? You know, a year ago, Lil Wayne suggested he was becoming “too wealthy,“ and I think this proves he was correct. Only rich and rich people and Gen Z have this kind of work ethic.
