We just hope cheese sandwiches aren’t on the menu!
Earlier this week, company Soulection released a flyer for its upcoming Lovers and Friends Festival, scheduled for May 9 at the Dignity Health Sports Park in Carson, California.
However, after the suspiciously impressive lineup went viral, a couple of the listed acts denied involvement!
While Lil’ Kim wrote on IG Story, “This is SO FAKE! I am not a part of this,” Mase exclaimed on social media, “Best wishes on this show, but please take my name off of this flyer.”
Following the controversy, several social media users compared the extravaganza to Fyre Festival, a fraudulent luxury event co-founded by Ja Rule — who is ironically on the Lovers and Friends bill.
Commenters also noted that listed performer Megan Thee Stallion is expected to appear at the Broccoli City Festival in Washington, D.C., that very day.
Days later, Snoop Dogg came out as a Lovers and Friends promoter and posted an updated flyer on his page.

The rapper also published a video where he urged Lil Kim’ to contact him so they can sort out financial details.
Lo and behold, Snoop’s magic worked, and Lil’ Kim will now bring her fabulousness to the music gala!
The same situation happened to Twista, who previously wrote on social media, “AINT NO DEPOSIT HIT MY ACCOUNT FOR THIS SHOW.”
“Locked and loaded playing all the hits,” he later exclaimed.
Additionally, a representative for co-promoter Goldenvoice told Variety this week, “Our festival is 100 percent confirmed. Lineups are always subject to change.”
As of this writing, presale tickets are sold out, and hopeful attendees must join a waitlist.
