Drake was booed off stage at a music festival this weekend

Even though he has his own private jet, generally lives a life of luxury and just launched a massive new Cannabis company last week, Drake still has reasons to feel all the feels and shed all the tears. At least, he did this weekend.

The rapper was embarrassingly booed off stage in Los Angeles on Saturday night after he appeared as the surprise guest at the Tyler, the Creator's Camp Flog Gnaw festival.

Fans were apparently hoping for Frank Ocean to headline the music festival after it was rumoured that he would play the slot.

The tens of thousands in the crowd at Dodger Stadium were heard booing and yelling "no" during poor Drake's performance, to the point that he awkwardly cut it short.

"I'm here for you. If you want me to keep going, I'll keep going," Drake said after playing just nine songs to the packed arena.

When the response wasn't exactly positive, he finished with "It's been love. I go by the name of Drake, thank you for having me," before walking off the stage. 

After his untimely exit, concertgoers — who had spent the day watching the likes of Daniel Caesar, Juice World, 21 Savage and Solange — were heard chanting "We want Frank!"

Supposedly they were just confused about whether Drake was actually the final act, as Lil Uzi Vert and A$AP Rocky also played surprise sets of two songs each right before him.

At least a few people were there to console Drake after the incident: Singer Kehlani was one of many who publicly expressed her support, along with countless fans, who were shocked and offended that anyone would treat Drake that way. 

Tyler himself also tweeted his dismay at the crowd's reaction, saying they "acted out like assholes."

"I thought bringing one of the biggest artist[s] on the planet to a music festival was fire," the post read.
