The “Under The Influence Of Music Tour” is slated to be one of the biggest in rap this summer, however it was recently announced that one of the lineup’s members would be absent.
A few weeks ago Tyga informed tour organizers that he would not be joining them for the tour that began Thursday. Wiz Khalifa, the tour’s headliner, recently sat down with Philadelphia’s Power 99 and said he was disappointed by the Young Money artist’s withdraw and said he was “wack” for doing so.
“Very [disappointing], he didn’t tell me at all,” Wiz Khalifa said when asked about Tyga’s absence from the tour. “His people was just like, ‘Nah, we ain’t going to be on the tour.'” When asked if there was any reason Tyga decided not to participate on the tour, Wiz told the show hosts about the excuses he used but believed they weren’t good enough to not participate.
“He said he was filming a movie and finishing up his album but that’s a wack excuse,” he said. “He’s still cool, I’ll [still] talk to him. I’m sure he’ll probably hear interviews of me saying that I thought it was wack and stuff like that and he didn’t reach out. I’m the type of person like I talk to people when I want to. He know what it is with me–we cool, that’s the homie and that was just a wack move but you know, we cool… I felt like [him not calling personally] was just corny man. We’re better than that ’cause at the end of the day you’re going to say album and a movie just to sound like you got something to do. 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 so it’s like at the end of the day what do you want to do with your life.”
Wiz was also asked about the chemistry between the acts who are participating in the “Under The Influence Of Music Tour.” He replied that everyone gets along and is a fan of one another.
“The chemistry is good, it just started last night,” he said. “Everybody was outside and in the back skating around, smoking, chillin,’ it was tight man we all watched each other’s shows and it’s going to be good, it’s going to be fun ’cause nobody’s bougie. And we’ve all hung out together before.”
The “Under The Influence Of Music Tour” began on July 24 and will continue until August 24. Aside from Wiz, Young Jeezy, Ty Dolla $ign, Sage The Gemini, Rich Homie Quan, Mack Wilds, Iamsu! and DJ Drama are all slated to perform at each stop.
