I know I am going to catch some heat for this; but after reading this article I have so many questions. I want to preface this buy saying that I love true Hip-Hop… lol here we go…
According to the article, Lil Wayne showed up to the concert venue in Richmond 3 hours late;
Though more than three hours late — coming on stage at 11:50 p.m., to be precise
Question #1- why would anyone wait over 3 hours to see Lil Wayne?
Some fans grew impatient and demanded refunds:
“I want my money back,” said Shapierra Debro, 16, there with her cousin Tymesha Debro and friend Deshante Robinson. “I can look at him on TV. You see everybody else and their momma on stage tonight except Wayne.”
Question #2,3,4- What is a 16 y/o doing at a Lil Wayne concert? Where was this little girl’s parents? Why hasn’t anyone smacked the hell out of them for letting her buy tickets to a Lil Wayne concert?
I guess I am just not getting why Lil Wayne is popular. Anyways I will go on to the next issue.
Vanessa McCalla, 31, was especially incensed because she drove from Virginia Beach and took a partial vacation day from work to be at the concert.
“This is ridiculous. I’m a single parent. I work hard for my money and I’m a professional. He should be a professional, too. I’m disgusted,” McCalla said.
Okay I had to LOL when I read this part. Vanessa says that she is a professional single mother who took a partial vacation to drive to Richmond from VA Beach…. She is concerned that Lil Wayne is not professional enough to show up on time. I think Vanessa didn’t hear that Lil Wayne was arrested and charged earlier in the day with several counts of drug and weapons charges in an Arizona courtroom.
Lil Wayne is a professional, but not the kind of professional she is referring to…. lol
Question #5- What is a partial vacation? Leaving work early is a partial vacation? I’m confused….
Question #6- What kind of professional is Vanessa taking a partial vacation to see Lil Wayne? Once again I’m confused…lol
Apprantly there were some VCU students who were not to happy about Lil Wayne showing up 3 hours late.
Ten minutes later, VCU students Tenzin Sampher, Louis Cincinelli and Garret Wegrzynowicz, figuring Wayne had finished the show after a mere 20 minutes, also left the venue.
“Virginia Commonwealth students and Richmond as a whole isn’t going to forget what he did to us today. It was unacceptable,” said Sampher.
Question #7,8,9-Uhh is Lil Wayne the President of VCU? Does he sit on the Board? Why would VCU be concerned that Lil Wayne showed up 3 hours late to a non University concert? I think most VCU students will be able to pick up the pieces some how to carry on with their collegiate careers…
