“We reached out to several artists to perform Savage’s verse and/or stand in solidarity on stage on his behalf,” Kei Henderson wrote via Twitter. “Someone from Epic sent me the photo of Post wearing the Savage tee before he performed. I appreciate the notion. Lord knows me, Meezy and our team attempted to solidify recognition for Savage during the performance of ‘Rockstar,’ it just didn’t work out that way.”
Some publications assumed this statement entailed the mentioned artists rejection of the opportunity. Based on Kei’s latest Tweet, the idea was shut down by another source. Post Malone’s camp may have been the ones to shut it down but the decision to halt has yet to be officially attributed to any party.
