Rapper Lil Wayne had fans wondering if he was leaving his tour with rock group Blink-182 after telling the crowd that he was unhappy with the arrangement before walking off stage after only four songs — though he was quick to clear up rumors Friday afternoon.

Audience members at the Bristol, Virginia show were left scratching their heads after the rapper ended his set just 20 minutes into his performance, suggesting an end to what was an already unusual combination of a pop-punk band and a rapper, just two weeks into their tour.

Before leaving the stage, Lil Wayne thanked the band for including him in the tour before telling the crowd, “This might be my last night.”

“Hold on. I just want the people to know — if you’re wondering, please forgive me,” the 36-year-old rapper said in a video filmed by an audience member. “But I am so not used to performing to a crowd and there’s not too many — you know … that’s not my swag. I’m not sure how long I’m going to be able to do this tour but make some noise for Blink-182 for including me anyway.”

“This might be my last night though, let’s go,” he added.

Concert-goers were left baffled by the rapper’s departure, and took to social media to voice their confusion and displeasure.

“Wow , @LilTunechi just said this maybe his last night in the Blink 182 tour. Cited the lack of rap fans/his fans,” one Twitter user posted on Thursday.

“@LilTunechi just dissed everyone saying this might have to be his last night on this tour Pretty Much because we aren’t good enough for him! Honey you are the odd ball out here, you decided to play between @NeckDeepUK and @blink182” another audience member tweeted.

“I think Lil Wayne just quit the Blink 182 tour. (Yes, that’s the same show) Played for like 20 mins,” tweeted WAMU 88.5 reporter Jordan Pascale.

Lil Wayne addressed the rumors Friday afternoon on Twitter, writing, “Yesterday was krazy! But I want all my fans to know I won’t be quitting this tour! I’m having too much fun with my bros blink-182. Bangor, ME See you tomorrow!”

The North American leg of the tour, which is produced by Live Nation, began in Columbus, Ohio last month and is scheduled to continue into September. Reps for both Lil Wayne and Blink-182 did not immediately return PEOPLE’s request for comment.
