Weezy blamed his no-show on "mother nature."
After he was booked to replace Cardi B at Panorama Festival in New York, Lil Wayne was a no-show due to weather concerns. The storm was a legit issue too as others were forced to cancel their sets. The Migos, Dua Lipa, The Weeknd, and more were all victims of the weather, canceling their shows at the festival as a result. However, recent reports are saying that Lil Wayne's non-appearance may not have actually been because of the weather.
You'll recall a similar incident at Rolling Loud Miami in May as Weezy was set to headline one of the secondary stages before dropping out of the show at the last minute, citing an unexpected illness. According to Page Six though, this time around is simply because he just "didn't want to do it." Writing that their source is a "music insider," the publication was reportedly informed that talks were "going on for days, like three days. He just did not want to do the festival."
Another source has come forward in telling the website that Lil Wayne simply hates New York after spending time at Rikers back in 2009. "He’s hated it here since his arrest years ago," they were told. Tunechi's attorney is denying that this is the case as Ron Sweeney said, "All incorrect. I was there at the festival. We wanted to do the show. We had a flight delay. We tried to switch with Gucci Mane and go on at 8:30 p.m. Why would someone turn hundreds of thousands of dollars down in a city where he just did Summer Jam?"
Obviously, this information should be taken with a grain of salt. Many performers were forced to cancel because of the storm and Weezy is very likely one of them.
