DJ Khaled's weekend set at Electric Daisy Carnival in Las Vegas saw plenty of hitches, but the hip-hop titan isn't taking any blame for the cringe-worthy performance, which saw several attendees boo him off the stage.
Khaled was scheduled to perform for an hour-long set but was onstage for less than 20 minutes before fans booed him and decided to chant for the next scheduled DJ: Yellow Claw. However, the super-producer had a few words to say about the mishap, blaming the performance on technical difficulties beyond his control.
On Monday (June 19), Khaled took to Instagram to explain exactly what went down. "They cut my time short and they had me back stage for a hour and half and the sound kept breaking," he captioned a video clip. "Then I heard my fans and I said I'm go out even if the sound cuts off and even if they cut my time short ... I'm here for my fans even if the sound man and promoter don't have there stuff together I forgive them thoe love is the [key.]"
In a second post, he went as far as claiming that the folks behind EDC purposely tried to mess with his set. "They tried to sabotage my sound so many times," he wrote. "THEY could not get the sound right on my set and i still stood on stage wit no sound and when they got the sound to work they want cut my set short but I still rep for my people anyone else would walk off stage .. i knew my California and Vegas fans was in the building."
