NICKI MINAJ: Abruptly Cancels 2018 NickiHndrxx Tour
Nicki Minaj, who is showing signs of “spiraling out of control,” abruptly canceled her NickiHndrxx Tour with Future.
A statement from Live Nation said that Nicki needs to “reevaluate elements of production.” It was supposed to start in Baltimore in less than a month. Early this morning, Nicki tweeted a video explaining that she needs more time to rehearse before kicking off the "best show of my life."
Meanwhile, the New York Post reported that ticket sales were “in the toilet.” Arenas that hold 20,000 had sold just one-tenth of the seats. A concerned music biz insider declared (quote) “Nicki has gone off the rails. She can’t take it that she sold fewer records than Cardi B. She can’t take Travis Scott beating her to Number 1. Her ticket sales for her tour are in the toilet, and it’s making her even more crazy.”
SLIM JIMMI, MIKE WILL: Hooking Up College Kids
Mike Will Made-It and Slim Jimmi came through in a big way, by giving out $100,000 in scholarship funds to 10 students.
The charity act was made through the producer’s Making Wishes Matter foundation. The organization initially offered funds to support five students, but when Rae Sremmurd heard what Mike Will was doing, he stepped up and matched it.
