Pusha-T to Replace Brockhampton at 2018 Governors Ball Music Festival
Brockhampton is undergoing a huge shakeup after Ameer Vann was accused of sexual misconduct, which resulted in him being kicked out of the group over the weekend. As they attempt to "regroup," they've had to cancel their upcoming set at the 2018 Governors Ball Music Festival at Governors Island in New York City this weekend. However, hip-hop will still be represented as they'll be replaced by Pusha-T.
According to The Governors Ball Twitter account, the "If You Know You Know" rapper will be performing at 5:45 p.m. this Saturday (June 2) on the American Eagle stage, which was the slot formerly filled by the "Gummy" collective. While Brockhampton fans that were anticipating their performance may be be disappointed, the hip-hop community will certainly be excited for Pusha's set, as this will be one of his first live performances since dropping his long-awaited Daytona album.
The project, which Pusha dropped on Friday (May 25), features his viral "Infrared" record, which takes subliminal shots at Drake after their lengthy feud of lyrical exchanges over the years. Over the weekend (May 26), the Toronto rapper responded to the Clipse MC with his "Duppy Freestyle," which appears to take aim right back at Pusha. Fans are hoping that Pusha will record and release another response to Drizzy sometime soon, but we'll have to wait and see.
