Drake responded to "kids" booing him off the stage at Tyler, The Creator's annual Camp Flog Gnaw music festival in Los Angeles over the weekend.

The Canadian superstar was booed off the stage at the annual concert that showcases homosexual and bisexual musicians on one stage.

Drake was a surprise guest who performed nine songs after A$AP Rocky and Lil Uzi Vert finished their short sets.

According to WENN.com, it had been rumored that rapper Frank Ocean, 32, was scheduled to perform during the evening, so when the "God's Plan" rapper stepped onstage, he was met with a chorus of boos from the crowd.

Drake was baffled by the crowd's low energy and tried using psychology to get a rise out of them. "I'm here for you tonight. If you want to keep going, I will keep going," he said. But it didn't work, as the impatient concertgoers yelled "Nooooo!"

The rap superstar politely bid the crowd goodbye and ended his set 20 minutes early. "It's been love. I love y'all. I go by the name of Drake. Thank you for having me," he said.

The next day, Drake addressed the entitled crowd, joking that he signed a 10-year residency for the festival.

"Plot twist… just signed a 10 year residency at Camp Flog Gnaw sorry kids see you EVERY SINGLE YEAR till you are 30."
 

The reasons for the crowd's rude reaction to Drake's performance varied. Many say the young crowd expected to see LGBT+ musicians perform, but they got closeted rapper Drake instead.

According to Variety.com, Drake was simply too old for the entitled "young, sarcastic" Generation Z snowflakes in the audience.

"Hey, you know he is 33 now," Variety.com joked.

Tyler, The Creator ripped into the crowd, calling them "assholes" and "rude" for disrespecting the biggest rapper on the planet.

"I thought bringing one of the biggest artists on the f—ing planet to a music festival was fire!," he wrote. "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 didnt come true and i dont f— with that … That sh– was like mob mentality and cancel culture in real life and i think that sh– is f—ing trash."

According to WENN.com, it had been rumored that rapper Frank Ocean, 32, was scheduled to perform during the evening, so when the "God's Plan" rapper stepped onstage, he was met with a chorus of boos from the crowd.

Cell phone video uploaded to YouTube by YeeterzTV shows Drake attempting to perform despite the booing at Los Angeles' Dodger Stadium.

Drake tried using a little psychology, telling the audience: "I'm here for you tonight. If you want to keep going, I will keep going." But it didn't work, as the concertgoers replied "Nooooo!"

Embarrassed and humiliated, Drake cut his set short by 20 minutes, telling the crowd: "It's been love. I love y'all. I go by the name of Drake. thank you for having me."

Following his quick exit, many concertgoers took to Twitter to share the news. According to one Twitter user, fans at the festival were expecting to see performances by openly homosexual rappers, such as Tyler, 28, and Frank Ocean (pictured left), but they got the closeted rapper Drake instead.

"Fans at camp flog gnaw were expecting that Frank ocean was gonna be the surprise guest headliner... they got drake instead.. safe to say... they rather Frank ocean."

But others insisted Ocean had never been confirmed to perform at the festival, and they don't know how that rumor got started.

"Tyler, The Creator never said it was Frank Ocean or gave clues about it," one person tweeted. "That's y'all fault for being mad and assuming s**t. It should be whatever that A$AP Rocky, Lil Uzi Vert and Drake were the mystery guest for Camp Flog Gnaw."

Singer Frank Ocean has opened his first LGBT+ nightclub in New York City after retiring from the music biz. Ocean's music career went the way of the dinosaurs after he came out as homosexual when he left the hip-hop collective Odd Future to go solo.

Now the 31-year-old Scorpio is back on the scene - but not as a hip-hop artist. The "Novacane" singer launched his first LGBT+ nightclub in New York City.

Ocean will be throwing his grand opening party on Thursday night called PrEP+ in New York, The Blast reports. The name PrEP+ comes from the prescription drug taken by MSM (men who have sex with men) to prevent the transmission of HIV.

Ocean announced PrEP+ is "an ongoing safe space made to bring people together and dance. PrEP+ will welcome globally celebrated DJs."

After everything he's gone through, Ocean says his LGBT+ nightclub will not tolerate hate of any kind. If you are not ghey-friendly, you will not be welcomed at PrEP+.

The openly gay singer/songwriter promised to drop Boys Don't Cry, the follow-up to his 2012 sleeper album Channel Orange, in July. But July came and went without a peep from the 28-year-old New Orleans musician.

Kid Cudi performs at the Coachella Art & Music Festival

A loyal reader writes: "Did you see the pic of Kid Cudi at coachella in a crop top? I can't believe this.... what's going on?"

I'm surprised she even asked that question. Isn't it obvious that hip hop has been overwhelmingly gay for decades? It's a good thing that more rappers are coming out of the closet in 2014. Hopefully they will encourage more down low black men to come out of the closet. This will save the lives of thousands of black women who contract the HIV virus from their down low men.

Kid Cudi performed live at the Coachella Art & Music Festival in Indio, California on Saturday April 12.

Frank Ocean

Rapper T-Pain is accusing the hip hop community -- specifically rappers -- of blacklisting singer Frank Ocean because of his sexual preference.

In an open letter on his Tumblr blog in 2012, Ocean wrote that he had "unrequited feelings" for another man. But rather than accept him with open arms, the hip hop community quietly turned their backs on the 26-year-old songwriter (no pun intended). T-Pain suggested other rappers were discriminating against Ocean by not featuring him on their tracks.

Frank Ocean Chris Brown

The LAPD are investigating an early morning brawl between singers Chris Brown and Frank Ocean over, of all things, a parking spot!

According to an insider who was with Brown last night, they left the Westlake Recording studios in West Hollywood around 2 a.m. this morning. As Brown approached his car -- which was parked in Ocean's parking spot -- he saw that Ocean had blocked his car in with his own vehicle.

That's when words were exchanged between Ocean and Brown's camp. But my source says Brown stayed out of the loud chattering. My source said Brown attempted to back out of the parking spot. But according to my source, Ocean started running off at the mouth. "[Brown] was the peacemaker," said the insider. "He didn't want any trouble."
