Despite dropping out of Rolling Loud's lineup less than a week earlier, Kid Cudi left the stage midway through his set after being pelted by items thrown by the audience, while Kanye West appeared briefly during Lil Durk's performance, despite being bombarded with items by the audience.
On social media, video appeared to show Cudi getting hit in the face by a water bottle. A second video shows the "Day 'n' Nite" rapper threatening the audience with a short set as a result of the inappropriate behavior. It's fucking time for me to leave. It's time for me to leave this fucking stage if I get hit with one more fucking thing," he says. Cudi dropped his microphone and walked off stage as audience members began to chant West's name as he yelled, "Don't fuck with me." He was subsequently hit by a water bottle, causing him to drop his microphone and walk offstage.
In a somewhat controversial decision, Cudi replaced West after the Donda 2 rapper withdrew from the event. A bizarre incident was caused when one of Rolling Loud's co-founders falsely claimed that Scott was not permitted to perform because he had been linked to last year's fatal crowd surge at his Astroworld festival.)
While wearing a full face mask, West made a surprise appearance onstage with Lil Durk during the festival. He performed "Father Stretch My Hands, Pt. 1" from The Life of Pablo. Fans pointed out that Cudi contributes vocals to "1.".
After West criticized Cudi's friendship with Pete Davidson in February, the two rappers had a public fallout. According to West's post on Instagram, Cudi will not be on Donda because he's friends with... (The former Saturday Night Live star is currently dating West's ex-wife, Kim Kardashian.)
A series of tweets later accused West of lying, with Cudi calling West a "dinosaur" in response. Taking to Twitter, he said, "God opens the door so you can get rid of the wrong people.".
What is the situation with Lil Yachty?
Lil Yachty (L) was on his way to Rolling Loud Miami when his black van crashed
The rapper was in a black van on his way to Rolling Loud Miami with members of his crew. While the rapper's van was completely damaged on the right side of the vehicle, it is unclear what exactly happened. It was no longer possible to maneuver the vehicle.
During the video, Lil Yachty and his crew members exit the damaged van and quickly move to another black van. According to reports, the 'Speed Me Up' hitmaker was fine and performed at the coveted festival, but he has not commented on the incident on his social media accounts. On the topic of Rolling Loud Miami, Kanye West canceled his appearance. As a replacement, he was replaced by his former friend, Kid Cudi.
In an interview with Deadline, co-founders of Rolling Loud Tariq Cherif and Matt Zingler discussed Kanye's decision to withdraw from the festival. Rolling Loud Miami 2022 would be a great event with Ye headlining. During the months leading up to the performance, we worked closely with him and his team. "Ye has decided not to perform anymore," the statement said of his departure. In addition, according to the pair, "this is the first time a headliner has ever pulled out of a show, but we wish him well.". It will be an honor to welcome Kid Cudi as a headliner and we are looking forward to seeing what he has to offer." Rolling Loud Miami takes place from July 22 to July 24 at the Hard Rock Stadium.
