Lil Wayne cancels Rolling Loud performance
Rapper refused to be checked by festival police
MIAMI GARDENS, Fla. – Rapper Lil Wayne went to Twitter on Saturday night to inform his fans that he would not be performing at the Rolling Loud festival after he refused a mandatory check by police.
To all my fans who came to see me at Rolling Loud, I’m sorry but I won’t be performing. The Festival Police (Not Rolling Loud) made it mandatory that I had to be policed and checked to get on the stadium grounds. I do not and will not ever settle for being policed to do my job— Lil Wayne WEEZY F (@LilTunechi) May 12, 2019
Wayne was set to play in the top spot on the Audiomack Stage, one of the three Rolling Loud stages at Hard Rock Stadium, at 10:55 p.m.
Rolling Loud co-founder Tariq Cherif issued a statement about the security on the festival's first night after there were false reports of an active shooter.
