Lil' Wayne a big letdown on the stage

Full story: Baltimore Sun 84
Where was he? After 30 minutes stretched to an hour and then another 45 minutes, it seemed that Lil' Wayne, the acclaimed New Orleans rapper, was going to be a no-show. He was the headliner Wednesday night at ... Read more

great article. i CANNOT believe that he didn't apologize...i think that sums it all up right there. this dude has serious attitude problems. this is the rap industry these days...make a catchy song that will make a catchy ringtone...and then sit ontop their pile of money.

if you ask any major rock band...for instance the RHCP...what their favorite part of the whole process is....it is the live performances.

JUST ANOTHER STATISTIC!!!

i went to his performance and i will admit i was a little angry although i was'nt one of the thousands of booers it took him over three hours to get on stage the guys that opened for him were not that great but one thing i disagree with was once he finally got on stage for his hour long performance it was awesome he's a great performer but he could have done better thats all

um. what do you expect. Build your empire on small talent and producers this is what you get.
Back in the day rappers worked hard and respected their audiences. They had a message not just ego.

Lil Wayne is indicative of the reason Hip Hop as a culture is declining. I remember going to shows back in the day and ALL the artists were there at their allotted time. The show may have started 10,15 minutes late, but we could live with that. Now, you have artists that are booked for shows and DON'T EVEN SHOW UP!!!(Hello, Webbie & Lil Boosie) A LOT of these newer artists are not properly trained on a variety of issues. I blame the record company. As long as YOU ALL keep buying the records, they'll continue doing things like they've been doing. I'm glad I'm an old school Hip Hop fan. We didn't have to put up with this kind of garbage.

I remeber going to see the Ohio Players at a concert in Druid hill park . The Ohio Players sat on their bus for about 4-5 hours and never got off to perform . Sugarfoot , their lead singer was wild and we think they were on the bus firing up

Hip-hop and rap are all crap. Its nothing but noise and provides no redeeming social value.

I would do anything to see Wayne live in concert! But I sure wouldn't want to wait for 2 hours in a hot arena. He should have apologized for that.

About 2yrs ago he was also late due to the fact
that he had just gotten release from jail.

I went to the concert and I was very dissapointed with his lateness but i was very pleased with his performance. He was pumped up and being him. He should have given an apology. As far as it being hot it was hotter when i went to see Beyonce in the middle of the summer. I think the arena needs some upgrades.

That's probably why I never went to a rap concert. I only listen to rap and I can't imagine it being any better than playing it in my car. Prolly just little girls showing up acting like they've been listening to him for a while. I've listened to cash money since they were out.

Rap Music= Paying money to listen to people butcher the english language while gloating about how much money they are making because you bought their CD. Pretty silly, but its a brilliant manipulation of urban youth...I wish I had thought of it
