Drake showed up as the guest performer at the Creator's Camp Flog Gnaw festival in LA over the weekend to a less than welcoming reception. The annual festival is curated by rapper and record producer Tyler and has been on the go since 2012.
It's not known exactly why attendees booed Drake but it's looking like it's because they expected Frank Ocean as the special guest. However, when Drake emerged on stage, a lot of the crowd were unimpressed and let him know it.
People were heard shouting, "We want Frank" and when he asked the crowd if they wanted him to keep going some attendees yelled "No!".
Here’s a video from Camp Flog Gnaw.
Drake: “I’m here for you tonight. If you want to keep going, I will keep going. What’s up?”
Some fans boo loudly. One yells “No!”
Drake seemingly cuts his set short & ends the show there. “It’s been love.”pic.twitter.com/n1BYrvLThc

Honestly, the sheer entitlement of it all.
This was like 15 mins after Drake walked off and everybody realized Frank wasn’t coming, listen to this man scream 😭 pic.twitter.com/79NOgt8at7

The platinum-selling artist handled the situation like a pro, saying, "I love y'all. I go by the name of Drake, thank you for having me."
The videos have been doing the rounds online today and fans of the rapper are not impressed.

Frank not performing is exactly what a crowd who would boo Drake deserves

Drake is one of Tyler's favorite artists ever, and he made a dream come true tonight by having him perform at HIS festival as a guest act. and people really had the fucking nerve to boo him off. Entitled brats don't deserve anything.

Seeing lots of video of Drake getting boo’d at Camp Flog. It sucks because Tyler books this festival himself. The lineup reflects his personal tastes and these are artists he usually has relationships with (Tyler asked Drake to do it as a favor). The disrespect is astounding.

Some of those who were at the event claimed they had their reasons for booing.
Everyone is complaining about drake getting boo’d at camp flog gnaw. Attend the show before you start shitting on the crowd. Get an inside source instead of twitter accounts. pic.twitter.com/ijc5vMeKyg

ITS NOT THAT WE WERE ENTITLED, ITS THAT DRAKE LITERALLY SAID “IM ONLY SUPPOSED TO DO THREE SONGS...” we were hyped, but then... he kept going? Why wouldn’t he just say he was the closer?? #campfloggnaw2019 pic.twitter.com/WNfvrrNMhA
