Lucas, meanwhile, appears around mid-way down the Lollapalooza poster in the smallest-sized font. In response, he took to Twitter to post a series of tweets in which he accused the event’s organisers of “playing” him.

“Putting my name next to the names of a bunch of random n****z that nobody heard of and offering me a weak ass [money emoji],” Lucas added.

He went on to say he had declined Lollapalooza’s offer to perform, but claimed that organisers “put me on the flier [sic] anyways”.

Lucas continued: “N****z is on gon start putting respek on my name. For years I been getting these weak ass offers like I’m some lil n****. Then n****z 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 then said that he’s one of “the biggest independent artist[s] period” with large “numbers” and many fans: “How is it that these festivals keep tryna bunch my name up with a bunch of n****z who ain’t on my level?. n**** I’m JOYNER LUCAS.”

These festivals is gon stop playing with me like I ain’t that nigga. Putting my name next to the names of a bunch of random niggaz that nobody heard of and offering me a weak ass . Then I say no to the offer and these hoe ass niggaz put me on the flier anyways. @lollapalooza

In a follow-up tweet, Lucas requested that Lollapalooza remove his name from this year’s poster – claiming he did not “agree” to “that lineup” and the fee that the festival was offering him.

“Next thing I kno the flier goes out and they gon put my name in some tiny ass letter like i ain’t me. Fuck outta here!” he explained, adding that he “had to find a microscope to find my name”.

After calling Lollapalooza “disrespectful”, Lucas later turned his attention to MGK while posting an image of the musician. “Then you got this goofy ass n**** headlining?” he said. “Smh how sway?”

He continued: “Lol What my brother Marshall [Eminem] did to this n**** @machinegunkelly is light compared to what’s waiting if he wanna walk down that street wit me. Ain’t nobody worried bout a n**** who paints his nails.”

All I know is @lollapalooza better take my fukin name off that flier. I ain’t agree to that lineup and I don’t want that weak ass niggaz tried to give me. Next thing I kno the flier goes out and they gon put my name in some tiny ass letter like i ain’t me. Fuck outta here!

Machine Gun Kelly is yet to respond to Joyner Lucas’ comments. Sharing the Lollapalooza poster on his own Twitter account, MGK wrote: “I CANT BELIEVE IM SEEING THIS!!!! the last time we played Lolla was 2017 on a sunday at 1pm now we’re headlining wtf i’m so grateful it’s all because of YOU.”

Meanwhile, Kelly – real name Colson Baker – has spoken out to defend his success as a pop-punk artist, explaining that he’s “earned that shit”.

Machine Gun Kelly’s new album ‘Mainstream Sellout’ is out tomorrow (March 25). It serves as the first of two studio records from the star to be released in 2022, following on from 2020’s ‘Tickets To My Downfall’.
