Bad news for Drake, not everybody loves him.
A lot of people still love him. A matter of millions upon millions. But no-one gets through life without gathering haters, even if you’re a celebrity.
Here’s the jist: Tyler, The Creator brought out the rapper at the end of his set at the Camp Flog Gnaw event at Dodger Stadium in Los Angeles.
The crowd, who may have been expecting Frank Ocean, were decidedly unhappy, and proceeded to boo Drake.
In hilarious fashion, Drake addressed the reaction. “Plot twist,” he wrote on Instagram, “I just signed a 10 year residency at Camp Flog Gnaw. Sorry kids – see you EVERY SINGLE YEAR ’til you are 30.”
Giving his own take on the events yesterday, Tyler told his Twitter followers: “I THOUGHT BRINGING ONE OF THE BIGGEST ARTIST ON THE FUCKING PLANET TO A MUSIC FESTIVAL WAS FIRE,” he wrote in his trademark all-caps tweeting style.
“BUT FLIPSIDE, A LIL TONE DEAF KNOWING THE SPECIFIC CROWD IT DREW. SOME CREATED A NARRATIVE IN THEIR HEAD AND ACTED OUT LIKE ASSHOLES WHEN IT DIDN’T COME TRUE AND I DON’T FUCK WITH THAT.”
I think Drake might have other things to focus on, if he can focus, given his new cannabis venture.
The 33-year-old has collaborated with Canopy Growth to become the proud owner of More Life Growth Co., which is named after his 2017 mixtape.
Drake is said to have a 60 per cent stake in the company, which will produce and distribute cannabis and will be based in his hometown of Toronto.
“The opportunity to partner with a world-class company like Canopy Growth on a global scale is really exciting,” he said in a statement. “The idea of being able to build something special in an industry that is ever growing has been inspiring. More life and more blessings.”
