Published Feb 07, 2017Rappers blowing off appearances at public events often involves promoters putting the blame squarely on the artists or vice versa. However, a Houston promoter tried to blame terrorist organization ISIS after some special guests failed to show at a Super Bowl event this past weekend.
TMZ reports that the likes of Snoop Dogg, Future and Flo Rida were absent from the "Super Bash" event, with the promoter claiming the event lacked star power due to a bomb threat in the area. The event boasted ticket packages that ranged from $75 to $5,000 USD.
The site reports that while the bomb threat was real, it had little to do with the big names skipping out on the party. Rather, TMZ says it was the lack of funds from the promoter that kept them away. Sources told the site that the rappers didn't sign a deal to appear as they were never paid.
Nick Cannon and Floyd Mayweather were also on deck to make appearances, with the latter even promoting the event on his social media channels despite the no-show.
