BRISTOW, VA (CelebrityAccess) — Rapper Lil Wayne has walked back a threat that he was dropping out of a co-headlining tour with alt-rock icons Blink-182.
In a TMZ video tweeted by Uproxx, the rapper pauses his performance at Jiffy Lube Live amphitheater in Bristow, Virginia to tell the audience:
“Hold on, I just want the people to know, if you’re wondering, please forgive me, 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. This might be my last night though, let’s go,” Wayne added, prompting speculation that he was planning to exit the tour.
