Rolling Loud’s season of festivals is set to get underway next weekend as they take over Miami for their annual showcase. This year’s festival was set to be headlined by Kanye West, Future, and Kendrick Lamar. It’s one of many festivals Kendrick Lamar has or will perform at this year following a lengthy hiatus that was ended with his Mr. Morale & The Big Steppers album while it marks Future’s return to the Rolling Loud stage following his appearance at the platform’s Los Angeles showcase in late 2021. As for Kanye West, it would’ve been his first headlining set of the year, following his canceled Coachella set, but that will no longer be the case.

For reasons that have not been shared yet, Kanye West dropped out of the 2022 Rolling Loud Miami lineup. “Due to circumstances outside of our control, Ye will no longer be performing at Rolling Loud Miami 2022,” Rolling Loud shared in a statement on Twitter. As a result, Kid Cudi will now replace Kanye as a headliner for day one of the upcoming showcase. Cudi shared his excitement to hit the Rolling Loud in a tweet, writing, “RAGER BOY INCOMING [double exclamation mark emoji].”
