Following a chaotic Rolling Loud Miami day 1 festival, the second day featured Future as the headliner. After performing some of his hits, the Freebandz boss then brought out the surprise guest Travis Scott and the crowd went crazy.
Before the event, there were some rumors that the UTOPIA rapper is not allowed to perform at the festival, which was why Kanye West dropped out as the headliner. However, Rolling Loud themselves confirmed that they reached out to the rapper to headline the show. A Rolling Loud spokesperson said in a statement to Rolling Stone,
“We reached out to Travis to headline Rolling Loud, but it couldn’t work in such a short time, This had nothing to do with any restrictions from the hosting venue Hard Rock Stadium.”
Travis Scott made the surprise appearance with the performance of Southside and Future collaboration “Hold That Heat”. LaFlame then went on to perform his greatest hits, including “No Bystanders” and “Goosebumps”. Their performance was a smashing success with the crowd.
Meanwhile, in addition to being the subject of a slew of Astroworld-related lawsuits Scott, including a recent wrongful death claim filed by a woman who lost her unborn child during the event, the embattled rapper is also being sued for allegedly causing a stampede at Rolling Loud in 2019.
We will have to see how Travis manages to avoid the multi-billion dollar lawsuit against him. In the meantime, you can check a few clips from his performance at Rolling Loud Miami below. Stay tuned to Thirsty.
