Kid Cudi to replace Kanye West at Miami’s Rolling Loud Music Festival
Rapper Kanye West will no longer play a leading role in Miami’s Rolling Loud Festival 2022 after an unexpected exit and a replacement for Kid Cudi.
The Festival will take place Friday through Sunday at the Hard Rock Stadium in Miami, where Cudi will continue West’s originally planned first day performance.

We worked with him and his team on performance for months,” said Tariq Cherif, co-founder of Rolling Loud. Said Matt Zingler in another statement. “Unfortunately, you have decided not to play him anymore.”
The statement added that this is the first time the headlining law has decided to withdraw from the rolling louds.
Other headliners include Saturday’s Future and Sunday’s Kendrick Lamar. Other prominent artists who have performed for three days include 2 Chainz, Lil Uzi Vert, Kevin Gates, Kodak Black and A $ AP Ferg.
It is the second time in 2022 that West has decided to withdraw from a major music festival. In April, West, along with Travis Scott, reportedly canceled a performance at the Coachella Music Festival in California that month. Since then, he has been sued by an entertainment company claiming he didn’t pay for some projects.
