Taylor Gang’s Wiz Khalifa has stepped forward to address close pal Tyga making a late decision to pull out of his Under the Influence tour.
Although Wiz promised he was on good terms with Tyga, the married rapper admitted the decision threw him off.
“I’m sure he’ll probably hear interviews of me saying that I thought that it was wack and he didn’t reach out. I’m the type of person, I talk to people when I want to. We cool, that’s the homie, and that was just a wack move,” Wiz said in an interview. “I felt like that was just corny, man. We’re better than that ’cause at the end of the day, you don’t say album and a movie just to sound like you got something to do ’cause 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. At the end of the day, what do you want to do with your life?” (Power 99)
Khalifa broke the news to his Twitter followers in mid-July.
“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)
