OVO Sound boss Drake could use a big hug right about now. The hip-hop veteran felt some huge fan backlash this past weekend at Tyler, the Creator‘s Camp Flog Gnaw concert.
New footage has surfaced of Drizzy getting the boo treatment after coming out as a surprise performer.
In footage doing the rounds on social media, the Canadian hip-hop star can been seen pleading with the audience: “Like I said, I’m here for you,” and, “If you want me to keep going, I’ll keep going.” He was met with a cacophony of boos and “nos”, which results in him exiting stage left. “It’s been love. I go by the name of Drake, thank you for having me,” he says as he walks off, reportedly ending his set 20 minutes early. Harsh. (Billboard)
According to reports, fans expected Odd Future’s Frank Ocean to pull through for a performance.
Apparently, fans were hoping that Frank Ocean would be the surprise guest, and when Drake showed up and tried to perform he quite literally got booed off the stage and left. But not before pleading with the audience to give him a chance. “I’m here for you tonight. If you want to keep going tonight, I will keep going,” he said while audience members screamed “Noooooo” and “Booooo.” (Cosmopolitan)
Over the past few hours, the Internet has lit Drizzy up with hard-hitting memes.
