Kanye West is well-known for his habit of showing up or not to places you don’t expect. If the risk pays off, maybe he’ll attend your event.
The Rolling Loud Miami festival drew lots, but unfortunately, the artist said, “Snake eyes.”
“Due to circumstances outside of our control, Ye will no longer be performing at Rolling Loud Miami 2022,” a tweet from the annual festival’s handle wrote on Sunday and revealed Kid Cudi as the rapper’s substitution.
The July 22 show was supposed to see Ye as the headliner, with the likes of 2 Chainz, Saweetie, Lil Yachty, Playboy Carti, Three 6 Mafia, and many more.
In a statement, Tariq Cherif and Matt Zingler, the Rolling Loud co-founders, stated that this was “the first time a headliner has ever pulled” out of a concert, but they wished West “the best.”
“We were looking forward to Ye headlining Rolling Loud Miami 2022. We spent months working with him and his team on the performance. Unfortunately, Ye has decided that he will no longer be performing,” according to the statement.
“This is the first time a headliner has ever pulled [out of] our show, and though we don’t take it lightly, we wish him the best. We look forward to welcoming Kid Cudi as a headliner in Miami, and we can’t wait to see what he has in store.”
While this might be unmatched for Rolling Loud, this is strongly in Ye’s deckhouse. The Weeknd and Swedish House Mafia replaced Ye as headliners for Coachella this year, just weeks before the event.
