Rapper Trippie Redd has reportedly quit Travis Scott‘s ASTROWORLD Tour claiming the elaborate stage production setup take so long to assemble, it’s cutting into his set time.
Check out the full story, below.
Scott’s elaborate stage production has caused quite the stir lately. The stage design includes not only a roller coaster but a ferris wheel-like contraption, a setup that quickly caught the attention of Motley Crüe drummer Tommy Lee.
Now after threats from Lee telling Scott to “lawyer up,” it seems the intricate stage production is now stirring up issues within the tour.
According to TMZ, Ohio native and ASTROWORLD opener Trippie Redd has become rather fed-up with the tour’s production problems.
Sources tell TMZ the rapper became frustrated over the course of the tour, citing that the production crew are taking too long to assemble Scott’s stage setup. The increased time for production setup has lead to a shortened set time for Redd.
It’s stated the rapper’s frustrations are not aimed at Scott directly, and that he too shares in Redd’s frustrations over the delays.
Still, it seems that Redd feels it’s not worth touring to only play a couple songs every night.
Trippie no-showed at the Detroit show Thursday night, and a source told TMZ he will not be hitting the stage for the remaining shows.
