Super Bowl Party Promoter Blames ISIS For Canceled Gig With Snoop & Future
Future & SnoopPromoter Stiffed Us, So We Bailed ...What ISIS 'Threat'??

Snoop Dogg, Future, Flo Rida and other big artists were MIA from a Super Bowl party gig, and the promoter tried to blame ISIS -- but the real problem was $$$$.
The Saturday night party in Houston, slugged "Super Bash," was also supposed to feature Nick Cannon and Floyd Mayweather -- but none of them were there. The promoter, whose ticket packages ran from $75 to $5,000 each, said the party was celeb-free due to a bomb threat a few blocks away.
Sources connected to the venue tell us the promoter simply didn't come up with enough scratch to pay the celebs and vendors for the event. Other sources -- close to Snoop, Future and Flo Rida -- tell us they never inked a deal because they never got paid, so they never planned to attend.
There really was a bomb threat, but we're told it played no part in the no-shows.
Floyd did promote the party on social media, but bailed as well. His camp hasn't gotten back to us on whether he got paid.
