T-Pain has revealed that he has canceled his upcoming tour - citing poor ticket sales.

The rapper revealed the news in an Instagram video, speaking directly to his fans:

"Let me just start by saying that my team set up the tour in September... Some corners got cut. Production went missing. I wasn't as hands-on with the planning and things as I should have been because I've been busy as hell," he began.

"I thought since the first 1UP Tour went well and sold out every city, it should be good," he said. "Having said that, I'm gonna take it upon myself to cancel [the tour]. It just would have been a bad look for me, and it wouldn't have been entertaining for y'all."

T-Pain then admitted that he was told to lie about the reasons for canceling the tour:

"I was advised to lie about this and say that I needed some time, or I needed some alone time or me time or some sh*t like that," he said. "We f*cked up. I'm gonna keep it real with y'all. Most artists lie. Whenever concerts get canceled, or tours get canceled, it's for low ticket sales."
