The dabs floating around last weekend’s High Times Medical Cannabis Concentrates Cup must have been fire as hell, because apparently the crowd was too low-key, too mellow, maybe too dabbed the fuck out for cup performer Lil Wayne. Weezy cut his performance short after only ten minutes and swaggered off the stage Saturday night at the N.O.S. Event Center in San Bernardino, California.
“You guys are too mellow. I’m from the south we turn up there,” Wayne said before exiting stage right, at least that’s what he said according to a concert attendee named Brian DFA who talked to fan site LilWayneHQ.com.
“Don’t you ever call me to do this shit again,” he can be heard saying in the video above. “Ever. Don’t you, ever, ever, ever, ask me to do this shit again.”
High Times, which presumably paid out the wazoo for the super-duper famous rapper and used him as a major promotional tool while selling tickets to the Cup, was none too pleased. “We have no idea why… Lil Wayne suddenly ended his performance after just four songs at last night’s HIGH TIMES Medical Cannabis Concentrates Cup,” the magazine staff wrote in an article Sunday. “We are truly baffled by why Lil Wayne would do this in front of thousands of Cannabis Cup attendees—in total disregard for his fans—and are awaiting an explanation from his team, since he was contractually committed to performing for an hour.”
Though this makes Weezy’s sudden exit sound crazy rude, the rapper was actually fairly polite about it. “I’d like to thank y’all for y’all time,” he said, mid-song. “I don’t know what I’m… [Editor’s note: sounds like he’s going to say “what I’m supposed to do”]. ‘Preciate it!” Mic drop. And then he was gone.
Though High Times is of course pissed, they shouldn’t be that surprised. Lil Wayne is infamous for his walkouts, having cut a concert short after only one partial song in Milan, Italy earlier this year, storming off mid-show at Florida’s Nova Southeastern University, and pulling a similar stunt in Richmond, Virginia back in 2008, as reported by XXL.
At the very least, if the crowd was too dabbed out to get into Tunechi’s music, they were probably also too dabbed out to notice when he left the stage. That’s why dabs are the great equalizer.
