Drake got booed off stage at Tyler, the Creator’s Camp Flog Gnaw Carnival on Sunday because the crowd wanted to see Frank Ocean instead.
The OVO Sound boss wasn’t obviously irked by the reaction, which you can see below:
“I’m here for you tonight,” Drake told the crowd, as they started to boo. “If you wanna keep going, I’ll keep going tonight. Well, look, it’s been love. I love y’all. I go by the name of Drake. Thank you for having me.”
The audience started screaming Frank Ocean’s name after Drizzy left the stage, to drive the point home that they wanted the Blonde singer instead. The boos might have also come because there were a lot of underground acts on the bill, and there probably isn’t a rapper that’s more mainstream than Drake at the moment.
What do you think about him getting booed off the stage?
Update: Drake addressed the booing in a conversation with DJ Akademiks.
Drake is taking it in stride tho… he told me personally regarding the camp flog gnaw performance it’s a “moment of humility which is always welcomed”. He also added “was just not my night. Wasn’t who they wanted to see”.
