Sources tell TMZ that the Ohio rapper, who served as Travis Scott's opening act, has decided to jump ship just weeks after the trek kicked off. The reason behind the move? Insiders claim Trippie had become increasingly frustrated over "production issues and interrupted set times." The rapper reportedly believes the crew takes too long assembling Scott's elaborate stage design, and that the setup cuts into his performance time.
"It's just not worth touring to only perform a couple songs," TMZ reports.
Though Trippie will not perform for the remaining 10 shows, sources said there is no bad blood between him and Scott; in fact, the ASTROWORLD rapper is said to have also expressed his frustration over the delays.
Complex has reached out to Trippie's representatives for comment.
The ASTROWORLD Tour will continue tonight in Chicago, and will be followed by stops in Denver, Sacramento, Phoenix, and Los Angeles.
During a September interview with Rolling Stone, Scott briefly spoke about the ASTROWORLD Tour and said he wanted it to resemble an actual amusement part.
"I don’t know why it hasn’t been done already–I think people just don’t do shit," he said. "Who makes stages these days that are cool?"
Scott got what he wanted. The stage design includes an actual roller coaster that Scott is seen riding during the show. It's an exciting feature, no doubt; however, rockstar Tommy Lee claims it wasn't original. The Motley Crüe member has threatened to sue Scott over the stage design, claiming he and his team came up with the roller coaster idea first.
