In a series of tweets Wednesday, the “Ramen & OJ” rapper called out the Chicago festival after his name was listed in small font in the official ad with names like Don Toliver, Big Sean, Coi Leray, Tinashe, Willow and more.
“These festivals are going to stop playing with me, like not so much,” he said. “Putting my name next to the name of a bunch of random ni**azs that no one’s ever heard of and offering me a weak ass.”
He claims he turned down the gig, but his name was still listed on the flyer when it was released this week. “Then I say no to the offer and these hoe ass ni**az put me on the flier anyways,” he wrote.

Lucas said he feels disrespected when he sees artists “who ain’t even on my level” getting more prominent billing than MGK.
“Ni**az is on gon start putting respek on my name. For years I been getting these weak ass offers like I’m some lil ni**a,” he added. “Then ni**az who ain’t even on my level or doing my numbers is getting put in BIG LETTERS while they write my shit hella small on the flier.! How sway?!!”
He went on to declare himself the “biggest independent artist” aside from Tech N9ne. “And I got the numbers & the fans & the💰 to back that statement up. How is it that these festivals keep tryna bunch my name up with a bunch of ni**az who ain’t on my level?. ni**a I’m JOYNER LUCAS.”
