Young Money’s Tyga is going to crush some fans’ hearts this summer after bowing out of a publicized Under the Influence Tour run alongside rap superstar Wiz Khalifa. #maybenextyear
Tour headliner Wiz Khalifa broke the news to his Twitter followers early Thursday (July 10).
“Tyga dropped off the tour. Sorry ya’ll.,” Khalifa tweeted July 10. (Wiz Khalifa’s Twitter)
Hours later, Tyga hopped onto his account to confirm the unfortunate news and provided an explanation.
“I wanted to be apart of tour. But I’m finishin. Up my album and filmin a movie.,” Tyga tweeted. (Tyga’s Twitter)
Excited about sharing the bill with Taylor Gang head Wiz Khalifa and Ty Dollar $ign, rapper Mack Wilds recently talked to SOHH about joining the nationwide tour.
“I think, honestly, whenever you get a bunch of artists in an area together where they happen to be confined to hear each others rhymes, beats, the only thing that’s going to be produced is art,” Mack told SOHH writer Nikita Rathod. “It’s going to be very amazingly artistic so am I trying to solidify anything? I don’t think there’s really anything to be solidified. But is there going to be music that comes out of this tour? Absolutely.” (SOHH)
Wilds also revealed how they could churn out new records despite going from city-to-city every night.
“We have two studio tour buses and all of them are going to be in use where we are all just going to be recording and basically just having a great time whilst we are on tour. It could be anything, it could be a song from me, a song from Wiz, a Ty Dollar $ign song, it could be something,” Wilds added. “Shoot, DJ Drama might just do a whole Gangsta Grillz album off of what we do in this tour. You never know what you’re going to come up with. But, the only thing you can be sure about is that there’s going to be some music that comes, whether it’s mine, it’s Ty’s, whether we’re all gonna be on somebody’s joint. Just be prepared for that.” (SOHH)
The tour is expected to kick-off in a couple weeks in Khalifa’s Pennsylvania home state.
