Drake booed, cuts the headline for a quick surprise at Camp Flog Gnaw

At Tyler, the Creator's Camp Flog Gnaw Carnival on Sunday night, Drake was the surprise headliner. But the lukewarm response of the celebrity rapper prompted him to cut his surprise set shorter than obviously, he had anticipated.

Represented on the poster of the festival by a series of question marks, the closing performance slot had been the subject of feverish speculation in the days leading up to the annual event in the parking lot surrounding Dodger Stadium on Saturday and Sunday.
(Including Tyler, Solange, YG, Juice WRLD, DaBaby, Earl Sweatshirt, and FKA Twigs, performers announced in advance.) Many fans expressed hope that Frank Ocean, Tyler's one-time partner in the Los Angeles hip-hop crew Odd Future, would appear in concert for the first time since 2017. Then, with ASAP Rocky and Lil Uzi Vert, Tyler recruited Drake, each of whom performed two songs quickly before Drake took the stage and opened with his hit "Started From the Top."
The Canadian rapper, dressed in sweatpants and a puffy jacket over a classic Smashing Pumpkins T-shirt, went on to put together snippets of several other songs, including "Mob Ties," "I'm Upset," "Headlines," and his and Gucci Mane's "Both." About twenty minutes into his appearance, he did a pair of relatively low-key tunes that Tyler had requested — "Feel No Ways" and "Wu-Tang Forever"
"Tonight I'm here for you," he said. "If you want to keep going, I'm going to keep going tonight. What's up?" he paused here, seeming to gauge fan reaction, including a -booster wave. "Well, look, it's been, love. I love you all. I go by Drake's name. Thank you for having me," he left the stage with that.

Started a desultory chant of "We want Drake," but soon morphed into a chant of "We want Frank." Then the lights of the parking lot came up after another few minutes of uncomfortable inactivity, causing a wave of groans in the crowd (and at least one bottle that hurtled to the stage).
On the way out, the showgoers ' mood was mixed. Many expressed contempt for Drake; others said the rapper was too arrogant and made some new enemies. And one group of people had fun when they left Ocean's "Thinkin Bout You" loudly singing.
