Tyler, the Creator Reacts to Drake Getting Booed After Surprise Headlining His Festival
Just hold on, he's going home. Drake had an awkward on-stage moment over the weekend while performing at Tyler, the Creator's Camp Flog Gnaw Festival at Dodger Stadium in Los Angeles.
The 33-year-old "God's Plan" rapper was the surprise headliner for the event but only got through about nine songs before having to address the crowd. After hearing some mixed responses, Drake was filmed asking, "Like I said, I'm here for you tonight. If you want to keep going, I will keep going. What's up? If you want to keep going, I will keep going tonight."
When his question was met with some loud boos and nos, Drake simply shouted, "It's been love. I love y'all. I go by the name of Drake. Thank you for having me," before exiting the stage.
On Monday, Tyler took to Twitter to angrily address those who booed Drake off stage.
"I THOUGHT BRINGING ONE OF THE BIGGEST ARTIST ON THE F**KING PLANET TO A MUSIC FESTIVAL WAS FIRE! BUT FLIPSIDE, A LIL TONE DEAF KNOWING THE SPECIFIC CROWD IT DREW," he wrote. "SOME CREATED A NARRATIVE IN THEIR HEAD AND ACTED OUT LIKE A**HOLES WHEN IT DIDNT COME TRUE AND I DONT F**K WITH THAT."
He also praised Drake's song, "Feel No Ways," calling it "beautiful," adding, "ALSO, MOSTLY EVERYONE WAS HAVING A GREAT TIME, THOSE S**TS IN THE FRONT AREA WERE THE ONES BEING MAD RUDE, WHICH, I CAN SEE WHY, BUT, NAH, F**K THAT, YALL REPRESENTED ME AND FLOG TO MY GUEST AND MADE US LOOK SOOO ENTITLED AND TRASH."
The rapper then seemingly backtracked calling the incident "LOWKEY FUNNY."
He concluded the series of tweets by giving Drake a shout-out, writing, "AGAIN, THANK YOU DRAKE! ( IM F**KING PISSED HOTLINE BLING WAS NEXT THATS MY F**KING S**T IM GONNA PLAY THAT IN THE SHOWER RIGHT NOW) <3."
Tyler also changed his Twitter bio to "embarrassed by fans right now."
An eyewitness tells ET that some fans thought Frank Ocean was going to come out, which is why Drake got booed. Ocean, who's often worked with Tyler, the Creator in the past, was not featured at the festival, despite the rumors.
"It was never clear that Drake was the final artist last night, and he came out acting like he was only supposed to play a few songs, so the only time he got booed was when he kept asking if we wanted to hear more songs, and everyone said, no, because we all thought Frank Ocean was coming out after him," the eyewitness said. "If Flog Gnaw could have been clear from the start, this wouldn’t have happened. I feel like the issue was, they let the crowd have false expectations. The problem wasn’t really Drake. I felt bad for the guy.".
Meanwhile in Texas, Kylie Jenner attended her ex Travis Scott's Astroworld Festival despite reports of a romance with Drake. A source close to the emcee previously told ET that he and Kylie, 22, are not romantically involved. Additionally, a source close to Kylie says dating isn’t on her mind right now, and she’d still like to make things work with Travis, the father of her 1-year-old daughter, Stormi Webster.
