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.

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.
