Tyler The Creator Calls Drake Getting Booed At Camp Flog Gnaw “Cancel Culture”

Tyler The Creator has addressed Drake getting booed off stage at his Camp Flog Gnaw Carnival last night.

Arguably the biggest name in the rap game may not be as popular as we think he is. That was made clear when fans attending Tyler, The Creator’s Camp Flog Gnaw Festival in Los Angeles Sunday night booed Drake off the stage and made him cut his set short. You read that correctly — Drake got booed off the stage. According to reports, Tyler didn’t disclose to fans who the headliner would be, and they were expecting his Odd Future partner Frank Ocean to perform.

Instead, they got the biggest hip-hop superstar of the past decade, but apparently, Drizzy wasn’t good enough. After a few songs, Drake was not feeling the crowd’s energy, and video circulating social media shows him politely asking the crowd if they would like him to continue. “Like I said, I’m here for you tonight, if you want to keep going, I will keep going tonight. What’s up?” the “Controlla” rapper said. “If you want to keep going, I will keep going tonight.” But the crowd continued to boo, and Drake excused himself from the stage. “It’s been love, I love y’all, I go by the name of Drake.” You can hear a fan in the crowd scream that they wanted to see Frank Ocean instead of the Canadian MC.

By Monday morning Drake and Frank Ocean were both trending on social media. Many fans were in disbelief that a crowd could be unsatisfied with a performance from Aubrey Graham himself. Other MCs like Dreamville’s JID and TDE’s Reason gave Drake props for handling the situation so professionally.

DJ Akademiks claimed he spoke to Drizzy after the incident, and he seemed to have called it a humbling experience. “[It was a] moment of humility which is always welcomed.” He also told Akademiks it “was just not my night. Wasn’t who they wanted to see.”

Tyler has since addressed the issue on Twitter while chewing out his fans for what happened.

“I THOUGHT BRINGING ONE OF THE BIGGEST ARTIST ON THE F***ING PLANET TO A MUSIC FESTIVAL WAS FIRE! BUT FLIPSIDE, A LIL TONE DEAF KNOWING THE SPECIFIC CROWD IT DREW,” he tweeted. “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.”
