With only a few hours to go, Lil Wayne unexpectedly had to cancel his performance during the Mike Tyson vs Roy Jones Jr. fight.
Luckily, Snoop Dogg was able to step up.
Sources confirmed to TMZ that a flight was booked for Lil Wayne but he never got on the plane.
The rapper then confirmed the news on his Twitter, writing, “Due to unforeseeable circumstances I won’t be performing tonight at the Tyson/Jones fight. Hope the event is still a success and much love to Triller.”
He did not say what the “unforeseeable circumstance” was, but he did drop his No Ceilings 3 mixtape the night before in the lead up to the planned performance.
Due to unforeseeable circumstances I won’t be performing tonight at the Tyson/Jones fight. Hope the event is still a success and much love to Triller. Love 🤙🏾
