The Hip-Hop and R&B festival crafted from every millennial’s dreams may not come true after all. After images of the flyer went viral on Twitter, a handful of artists have spoken out via social media that although they are listed on the flyer, they have no intention of taking the Lovers And Friend’s Festival Stage. Lil Kim, Mase, and Twista have made comments on Instagram denying their involvement, captured in screenshots shared on social media below.
Still, Usher and Snoop Dogg have shared the flyer, seemingly confirming attendance. Joe Kay of Soulection affirms the lineup, tweeting “We do not condone fake/mock lineups”.
