(AllHipHop News) This year's Rolling Loud Miami lineup featured Migos, Travis Scott, Kid Cudi, Cardi B, Lil Uzi Vert, 21 Savage, and numerous other Hip Hop stars. Besides the performances, there was a lot of negative press connected to the festival.
Lil Wayne canceled his Saturday set over issues with police. Kodak Black was arrested for allegedly falsifying applications to buy firearms. Plus, YoungBoy Never Broke Again was reportedly shot at and Chicago rapper AAB Hellabandz was killed.
According to reports, local authorities are inspecting whether the three different shootings supposedly involving rappers were connected. Miami Beach police spokesman Ernesto Rodriguez stated, “It is all something we are investigating, but it is too early to tell."
Besides the violent incidents with YoungBoy and Hellabandz, two party buses hired by Young Thug were also shot at on Friday. The Atlanta native was said to be in another vehicle at the time, but someone suffered a minor injury as a result of the shooting that took place on Interstate 95.
Amid all of the criminal controversy, Rolling Loud's verified Twitter page posted a tweet that read, "IF YOU DIDN’T ENJOY ROLLING LOUD DESPITE THE HICCUPS, STAY HOME NEXT YEAR... THIS IS HIP-HOP.” The account is currently suspended.
