Canadian rapper Drake has responded to concert goers who booed him off the stage at the Tyler, the Creator’s Camp Flog Gnaw festival in Los Angeles on Sunday, calling them KIDS.
Drake had been brought on stage as a surprise headliner, at the event, but the crowd who were reported to be expecting Frank Ocean seemed not to be comfortable with Drake and decided to embarrass the singer.
In the middle of his song “Wu-Tang Forever,” the 33-year-old tried to calm the bitter crowd.
“Make some noise for yourself tonight,” Drake said. “I’m here for you tonight. If you want to keep going, I will keep going. What’s up?” he said
The bitter crowd who clearly didn’t want him to keep going began to loudly boo him. “If you want to keep going,” he said again, “I will keep going tonight.”
As the scream of “no” got louder, Drake said:
“It’s been love,” he said as he left the stage, ending his performance 20 minutes early. “I love ya’ll. I go by the name of Drake. Thank you for having me.”
Taking to Instagram to address the embarrassing moment, the rapper revealed he has signed a 10 year residency at Camp Flog Gnaw, where he was booed and will be performing every single year at the festival for the ‘kids’ until they turn 30.
He wrote: “Plot twist… just signed a 10 year residency at Camp Flog Gnaw. sorry kids see you EVERY SINGLE YEAR till you are 30.”
