In other news, the rapper made a surprise Leeds performance at this year’s Reading & Leeds festivals after failing to show up to his original slot the day before.
The American artist was due on the Main Stage West on Friday, August 25 between 16:35 – 17:10, but the festival has put out a statement on screens to say they were unsure of his whereabouts. “Unfortunately, Lil Tjay hasn’t arrived on site and we haven’t been able to contact him. We hope he will arrive soon,” the message read.
However, the rapper seemingly made up for it with a surprise set at the festival at midday on Saturday, August 26.
