Rolling Loud Miami 2022 Was A Memorable Moment

If you weren’t at Rolling Loud Miami this past weekend, you missed out on a stellar festival. If you’re not familiar, Rolling Loud is the largest hip-hop festival in the world. Annually, they put together a lineup of the biggest and most influential acts in the genre. While the festival began in Miami, over the years, Rolling Loud has expanded across the country and beyond. 

This year’s festival headliners were Kid Cudi, Future, and Kendrick Lamar. Friday was a very interesting night, as Kid Cudi, who was a last-minute replacement for YE, stormed off after crowd members repeatedly threw things onto the stage. Even though YE dropped out of Rolling Loud, he made a surprise performance during Lil Durk’s performance. The crowd went absolutely nuts when he took the stage. Friday also included amazing performances from Playboi Carti, Lil Yatchy, SSGKobe, Homixide Gang, Destroy Lonely, Fivio Foreign, and more. One of my favorite parts of the night was stopping by an exclusive VIP lounge area featuring the D’USSE ambassador and Houston’s rap legend Bun B. His D’USSE Watermelon Cooler was the highlight of my night. The drink was extremely refreshing. Especially when it was paired with Bun B’s Trill Burgers.

On day 2 of the festival, things began to pick up. With performances from City Girls, Dreezy, Latto, Dream Doll, and more, the ladies were showing out. Even with temperatures in the 90s fans were still extremely excited to watch each artist. A major highlight of the night was Hip-Hop legend Future, bringing out Travis Scott, and up-and-coming artist Real Boston Richey to perform during his set. A stellar performance came from 24-year-old artist SleazyWorld Go. Of course, he performed two of my favorite records “Step one” and “Sleazy Flow” remix.

On the last night of the festival, we saw performances from Lil Baby, Kodak Black, Baby Keem, Trippie Redd, GloRilla, No Cap, Flo Milli, Lakeyah, and many others. Rolling Loud closed off the night with its main headliner Kendrick Lamar, performing his hits from his new album Mr. Morale & The Big Steppers. He also performed some classics like “Money Trees” and “DNA”. One of the highlights of his performance was bringing out Kodak Black for “Silent Hill” and Baby Keem for “Family Ties.”

After the festivities were over, I stopped by the NTWRK x Galore party at Miami’s La Otra. The event included custom cocktails from MTN DEW Energy Lobos 1707 Tequila, and ice cream sundaes from Chips Ahoy! Throughout the night, there were special guest appearances from Flo Milli, Dreezy,  ShiggyChristian CombsMonaleo, and Baby Jay. This was an amazing night to wrap up Rolling Loud weekend!
