Lil Wayne canceled his scheduled performance at the Rolling Loud Festival in Miami, Florida over the weekend.

Tunechi claimed that security, “not Rolling Loud” would not let the “Uproar” rapper perform without patting him down, and Wayne refused to let that happen.

Lil Wayne took to Twitter to explain to his fans exactly why he wouldn’t be gracing the stage during the Rolling Loud festival.

“To all my fans who came to see me at Rolling Loud, I’m sorry but I won’t be performing. 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,” he tweeted on Saturday, May 11.

“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,” he concluded.

The “A Milli” rapper was reportedly scheduled to hit the Audiomack stage at 10:55 p.m., but Wayne canceled less than two hours before his scheduled performance.

Tunechi’s performance cancellation was one of a series of events that took place at this year’s Rolling Loud festival. On Friday, false reports of an active shooter on the festival’s grounds resulted in a stampede that caused some festival attendees to end up with minor injuries. Kodak Black was also arrested for weapon charges prior to his Rolling Loud set at Hard Rock Stadium.
