Rapper Twista claimed he was yet to receive payment for his involvement, which is exactly what several acts who were set to play Fyre festival complained about ahead of Ja Rule’s doomed event, which made headlines in 2017.

Snoop Dogg, who is one of the event’s promoters, stepped in to assure his fans that the festival was completely legitimate and personally asked Lil’ Kim to attend the event in California.
