Drake’s surprise performance at Tyler, the Creator’s annual Camp Flog Gnaw festival did not go as planned. Shortly after the “Money In The Grave” rapper took the stage at Dodger Stadium in Los Angeles Sunday night (November 10), he was booed right off it.
See, the crowd seemed to be hoping to see Frank Ocean instead of the Canadian rapper. And since the headliner for the festival was not announced before Sunday’s show, and the lineup reflects Tyler’s personal taste in music, many believed, in fact, they were certain that Frank was going to be the top act. So when it wasn’t him, they didn’t hide their disappointment.
“Make some noise for yourself tonight,” Drake told the audience in the middle of his song “Wu-Tang Forever.”
“I’m here for you tonight,” he continued. “If you want to keep going, I will keep going. What’s up?”
To his surprise (and mine too, honestly), the bitter crowd began loudly booing. “If you want me to keep going,” Drake said again, “I will keep going tonight.” Unfortunately, the crowd didn’t let up. The boos got louder and people started screaming “No.” So, with that clear response, Drake wasted no time exiting the stage. “It’s been love. I love y’all. I go by the name of Drake. Thank you for having me,” he said visibly disappointed while walking off stage.
Video of the incident has since gone viral, with many fans condemning the “ungrateful” crowd for their “rude” behavior. However, Drake is reportedly taking the incident in stride. DJ Akademiks tweeted Monday morning (November 11) that he spoke to the 33-year-old rapper, who told him that the performance was a “moment of humility which is always welcomed.” The “God’s Plan” rapper added, it “was just not my night. Wasn’t who they wanted to see.”
Here’s a video from Camp Flog Gnaw.
