Lil Wayne was set to perform at Rolling Loud Festival Saturday night, but in a series of tweets he revealed to fans that he would be canceling his set after refusing to be checked by festival police upon entering the grounds.

“To all my fans who came to see me at Rolling Loud, I’m sorry but I won’t be performing,” Lil Wayne says in a tweet announcing the cancellation. “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 and give you guys a great show.”

In a follow-up tweets he adds, “and give you guys a great show. I will be at Story tonight for the afterparty and you kan katch me on tour with my bros Blink 182 this summer!”


The festival later tweeted they had a “huge special guest” artist to replace Lil Wayne’s set.

According to those in attendance, the surprise artist was Meek Mill.

Yesterday, the crowd at Rolling Loud was sent into a panic when a false report of an active shooter on the festival ground surfaced.
