Dreamville’s J.I.D needs answers. The hip-hop artist has come forward to speak on rap heavyweight Drake catching big L’s at Camp Flog Gnaw.
J.I.D. went to Twitter Monday morning to ask fans why the 6 God received ill treatment after coming out this past weekend as a surprise performer.
Earlier Monday, footage surfaced of Drake getting booed after hitting the stage at Tyler, the Creator’s annual music festival.
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)
