Rapper Lil Wayne on Saturday stormed off the stage in the halfway of his concert at the Medical Cannabis Concentrates Cup, a three-day marijuana festival hosted by High Times magazine in San Bernardino, California. He dropped the microphone and marched off the stage after the marijuana festival went up in smoke.
The 33-year-old hip hop star performed four songs, including his verses from French Montana's "Pop That" and Gucci Mane's "We Be Steady Mobbin'," before the rapper looked at the side of the stage and sang, "Don't you ever call me to do this again. Don't you, ever, ever, ever, ask me to do this again." Midway through the next song, Wayne left the stage and didn't return.
The "Lollipop" hitmaker, a known marijuana advocate, was contractually committed to perform for an hour for the fans. However, it is not clear what angered Wayne and prompted him to leave the gig early. Rumors suggest he was upset at the audience's lack of energy as the attendees battled dehydration and soaring temperatures inside the venue.
Organisers at High Times have also been left stunned by Wayne's behavior and have since issued a statement addressing the incident. "We are truly baffled by why Lil Wayne would do this in front of thousands of Cannabis Cup attendees - in total disregard for his fans - and are awaiting an explanation from his team."
The Cannabis Concentrates event also featured a series of informational seminars and performances by flat-earther rapper B.o.B and Latin hip-hop and funk group Ozomatli. The event also exhibited examining the different products and services that use marijuana. Attendees were required to have California medical marijuana cards.
