Update: Lil Wayne Hit With $1.3 Mil Suit For Missed N.Y. Concert

After canceling a performance in Rochester, New York on three separate occasions, Lil Wayne has been sued by concert promoter Ed Strickland for $1.3 million, TMZ.com reports.

According to his reps, Weezy nixed the original October show, as well as a December make-up, over concerns of substandard audio equipment at Rochester’s Blue Cross Arena. As XXLmag.com previously reported, the multi-platinum rapper then skipped out on a third date, citing “the logistics of his band,” thus forcing Strickland to consider taking legal action.

The no-shows have resulted in over $300,000 in bills for Strickland, General Manager of RMF Productions, who had previously advanced Wayne $100,000 back in October. His last correspondence with the rapper was via e-mail, canceling the last date. – Devin Chanda

    He shot himself! Then claimed he “was shot”

    Kisses Baby, and claims Blood. Of course after studying bloods (and the rap game) for 12 years he was able to fool others enough as to his “brilliance”, when everyone who knows anything in this game knows he’s the most overrated rapper in recent years. I hope he gets what he deserves…
