Who knew, when Drake and Pusha T were at each other's throats a few weeks ago, that they had something in common all along, as if they were Bobby and Whitney? And no, it wasn't an appreciation of cocaine.
Namely, no wants to see either of them rap in person. Drake had to postpone several dates on his tour, and cancel a few of them, supposedly due to "production issues," and it was announced that Pusha T has canceled a whopping 11 dates on his tour, including his show here in the STL this weekend.
You can tell these shows were canceled due to a lack of interest and not problems with the P-Funk-style mothership or whatever, because they put tickets on sale well in advance and didn't start postponing dates until like two days before the tours were supposed to begin.
Drake pushed most of his dates back, except in cases where that must not have been possible, but Pusha T was forced to straight up cancel a good amount of his tour. He must have forgotten that he's not actually popular. He let CACs gas his head up with their effusive praise for (the genuinely excellent) Daytona.
You'd think that Drake might be able to generate interest, what with the popularity of the "In My Feelings" challenge. Maybe the venues he's playing are too big. His opening act is Migos, which can't be much of a draw. This is 2018, not 2017. Next time, he might consider getting an R&B singer.
