Drake Is Booed Off Stage…Here’s Why
Drake had an awkward on-stage moment early Monday while performing at Tyler, The Creator’s Camp Flog Gnaw Festival at Dodger Stadium in Los Angeles. He was the surprise headliner for the event, but only got through about 9 songs before having to address the booing crowd, who were chanting for Frank Ocean (who was the rumored headliner).
Drake asked the audience if he should continue, and the answer was more loud boos and nos. So he shouted, “It’s been love. I love y’all. I go by the name of Drake. Thank you for having me,” and then left. Tyler, The Creator took to Twitter yesterday to blast the “tone deaf” crowd for acting “like a–holes” when they didn’t get what they wanted. He also changed his Twitter bio to “embarrassed by fans right now.”
Drake’s friend, DJ Akademiks, said the rapper called the incident a ‘moment of humility which is always welcomed.’
