Drake Booed Off Stage at Camp Flog Gnaw ... Jokes He Signed Residency

6:03 PM PT -- Drake just broke his silence, joking on social media that he signed a 10-year residency to perform at Camp Flog Gnaw.
9:48 AM PT -- Camp Flog Gnaw's founder, Tyler, the Creator, is responding to his buddy, Drake, getting booed off stage by people who wanted to see his other good friend, Frank Ocean, instead ... saying it's his bad, and everyone else's bad too.
Tyler wrote on Twitter, "I THOUGHT BRINGING ONE OF THE BIGGEST ARTIST ON THE F**KING PLANET TO A MUSIC FESTIVAL WAS FIRE! BUT FLIPSIDE, A LIL TONE DEAF KNOWING THE SPECIFIC CROWD IT DREW." He added, "SOME CREATED A NARRATIVE IN THEIR HEAD AND ACTED OUT LIKE ASS***** WHEN IT DIDNT COME TRUE AND I DONT F*** WITH THAT."
He went on to say that people in the front row were the ones being the loudest, while most others were enjoying Drake's performance. He also called what happened to Drake "CANCEL CULTURE IN REAL LIFE", which he says he doesn't like. He thanked Drake too ... profusely.
Sounds like he acknowledges Drizzy might've not been the best choice, but also doesn't appreciate how the crowd treated his guest. Fair enough.
Rough night for Drake, who got booed off stage at his pal Tyler, the Creator's music festival ... due to a crowd that clearly wanted, and expected, to see someone else.
Champagne Papi came out as the surprise guest headliner Sunday night at Camp Flog Gnaw, which was held at Dodger Stadium. It sure seems like folks were jonesin' for Frank Ocean to the hit the stage and sing ... instead, they got Drizzy rapping.
The set didn't seem to be going well from the jump -- barely any energy from the audience, and what's worse ... when Drake offered to stay longer, the crowd didn't want him.
this was PAINFUL to watch drake literally got boo’d off stage 😭😭 #campfloggnaw pic.twitter.com/Ic6PenmPXc— ➳ trash (@trashminajx) November 11, 2019 @trashminajx
It seems like he heard 'em loud and clear ... Drake thanked the Flog Gnaw festivalgoers for their time and made his way off stage -- seemingly cutting his set short. No love lost between him and the mob either, because they chanted for Frank after Drake left.
As for why this happened to one of the biggest music acts in the world right now ... it might have something to do with the type of music these ticket holders are into, and who else was in the lineup -- tons of alternative hip-hop and R&B artists.

Safe for a handful of guys who can crossover to the mainstream -- DaBaby, 21 Savage, Juice WRLD, YG, etc -- the majority of the acts cater to a bit of a more indie listener. Ditto for Frank Ocean, who's the king of that whole genre right now.
Meanwhile, Drake is as mainstream as it gets. 'Tis what it is. 🤷🏽♂️
