Rolling Loud Miami, now in its eighth annual edition, once again proved to be the pinnacle of hip-hop gatherings, showcasing the finest talent from across the rap landscape. Over three days, dozens of artists took the stage, delivering an unforgettable experience for the massive crowd.
This year’s Rolling Loud Miami expanded its horizons, embracing artists from diverse genres, not just limited to hip-hop. During the grand finale of the event, A$AP Rocky treated fans to a cinematic set, teasing tracks from his upcoming album “Don’t Be Dumb” including a new track tentatively titled “Taylor Swift,” in which Rocky seemingly took shots at Travis Scott.
The ASAP Mob member also delighted the audience with surprise appearances by $NOT and ICYTWAT.
Elsewhere, Cardi B made a memorable appearance during her husband Offset’s performance, adding to the excitement by joining Moneybagg Yo on stage during the Migos rapper’s set. Lil Uzi Vert, another highly anticipated act, captivated the crowd with songs from the genre-blending blockbuster “PINK TAPE,” making its U.S. debut.
Adding to the diverse lineup, Bryson Tiller graced the Rolling Loud stage for the first time, serenading the audience with his signature “trap soul” sound and bringing out “Let Me Love You” hitmaker Mario for an unforgettable collaboration. The festival also showcased the talents of rising stars like Latto, Don Toliver, Lil TJay, LUCKI, Eem Triplin, Bktherula, TiaCorine, and DC The Don, all of whom delivered outstanding performances that left a lasting impression.
Meanwhile, acclaimed acts like Freddie Gibbs, 03 Greedo, and BONES showed their prowess and gathered devoted fans. Additionally, in a groundbreaking moment for the festival, hardcore punk phenomenon Turnstile made their Rolling Loud debut, becoming the first rock band to take the stage at a Rolling Loud event. Their inclusion may have surprised some, but it demonstrated the ever-blurring lines between hip-hop and guitar-based music. Playboi Carti’s headline set, for instance, infused nu-metal riffs, and artists like Lil Uzi Vert and Trippie Redd have successfully integrated punk elements into their “rage rap” style.
