A Lesson Learned From Wiz Khalifa Turning Down Drake Tour
Wiz Khalifa was offered a chance to go on tour with Drake when he had his first major hit with "Black and Yellow". His reasoning for turning down the tour was he wanted to develop his own brand. He didn't want to ride the coat tales of another artist.
This is a great example of why its important for a artist to do their own shows. You can never develop as a artist if you can't headline your own shows.
