When you take the biggest names in hip hop coupled with young blood, you get 2 days of music performances unmatched by anything else in the music industry.
Last weekend’s Rolling Loud took place in LA right next to USC and all its related subterritories. All walks of life from college frat boys to certified gang members raged for 2 back to back days in the Banc of California Stadium. Security was tight but that did not prevent chaos from taking place.
Before the headliner even took place on the first day there was bloodshed on the asphalt. From audience members jumping fences to get a closer look and police trying to stop them to moshpits getting out of hand, the festival was not short of adrenaline induced acts by both artists and fans.
Along with the usual suspects at the top of the lineup including ASAP Rocky, Future, Lil Uzi Vert and more, the real hype was hours before the night ended starting off with rappers who have shot up the charts including Da Baby, Blueface, Megan Thee Stallion and more.
Da Baby surprised fans by walking out with the Jabbawockeez and performing his biggest hits to date. Immediately fans responded chanting every one of his lines and making sure the energy did not die down once.
Blueface and YG both provoked the fans although Blueface might not have meant it to be intentional. YG flat out told fans to hop the fence dividing the different sections in the crowd because of the disconnect. As a spectator its this type of “do it my way” antics that gets every young-blooded male and female turnt. Although it might have been a long night for security, if you were a fan and you still had that riot, rebel mentality you left the venue satisfied.
Of course there was the big elephant in the room. Artists including YBN Cordae, G Herbo, A boogie wit da Hoodie and more took to the stage in remembrance of Juice WRLD. Juice WRLD was slotted to take the stage on Saturday but shocked the world when news got out that he had passed from an unexpected seizure after landing at Chicago’s Midway airport on December 8th.
