Wiz Khalifa on Tyga Dropping Out of Tour: “I Felt Like That Was Just Corny, Man”
Wiz Khalifa started this year’s “Under the Influence of Music” tour in Scranton, PA on Thursday night. The North American trek features Khalifa, Jeezy, Ty Dolla $ign, Mack Wilds, and more. One name artist missing from the lineup that was previously promoted is Young Money’s Tyga. Earlier this month, Wiz announced Tyga was dropped off the tour without giving a reason until now.
Speaking with Mina SayWhat of Power 99′s “Rise N Grind Morning Show,” Wiz explains. “He didn’t tell me at all,” says the Pittsburgh rapper. “His people was just like, ‘Nah, we ain’t gonna be on the tour.’”

“I’m sure he’ll probably hear interviews of me saying that I thought that it was wack and he didn’t reach out. I’m the type of person, I talk to people when I want to. We cool, that’s the homie, and that was just a wack move.”
“I felt like that was just corny, man. We’re better than that ’cause at the end of the day, you don’t say album and a movie just to sound like you got something to do ’cause I did my album before my tour and I’m shooting a movie as soon as I get home off the tour, and I got a son too. At the end of the day, what do you want to do with your life?”
The “Under the Influence of Music” 2014 tour with Wiz Khalifa, Jeezy, Ty Dolla $ign, Mack Wilds, Rich Homie Quan, IamSu!, Sage the Gemini, and DJ Drama runs until August 24. Tickets can be purchased here.
