WILMINGTON -- After disappointing hundreds of fans at New Hanover High Sunday, gangster rapper Lil Wayne may be developing a reputation. It turns out Sunday wasn't the first time Lil Wayne was a no-show for a concert in North Carolina. Nearly three weeks ago he was supposed to perform at West Craven High School near New Bern, but he never made it to town. He did play in Fayetteville the night before he was scheduled to perform in Wilmington this weekend. Former concert promoter Joe Montanti says unreliable entertainers can be bad for business. "It's like he's setting a pattern," Montanti said. "Maybe he's trying to be this tough guy rapper but it's going to end up messing up his career. All this negative publicity and nobody's going to want to touch him. He won't be able to get a venue in order to perform in." The lawyer for the promotion company says his client is considering suing Lil Wayne for not performing Sunday night. If you had a ticket for that show you can get your money back by bringing your ticket stub to Dr. Stylz on Market Street this coming Monday.
