Wiz Khalifa kicked off his “Under the Influence of Music” tour on Thursday (July 24) with Jeezy, Ty Dolla $ign, Mack Wilds and others… but Tyga pulled out.
In an interview with Mina SayWhat, the rap star expressed his displeasure with his absence.
“He didn’t tell me at all,” said Wiz. “His people was just like, ‘Nah, we ain’t gonna be on the tour.’ ”
Apparently, Tyga said that he was filming a movie and finishing up his album, but still, Wiz calls it a “wack excuse.”
“I’m sure he’ll probably hear interviews of me saying that I thought that it was wack and he didn’t reach out,” he explained. “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.
“I felt like that was just corny, man,” he continued. “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?”
Despite launching without one rapper, Wiz says the tour is moving along fine without him. “The chemistry’s good,” said Wiz. “Everybody was outside in the back, skatin’ around, smokin’, chillin’. It was tight, man. We all watched each other’s shows. It’s gonna be a lot of fun ’cause nobody’s bougie.”
The “Under the Influence of Music” tour through August 24. Other acts on the bill include Rich Homie Quan, Sage the Gemini, Iamsu!, and DJ Drama.
