Kanye West is known for showing up or not being where you think he’ll be. But if you’re lucky, maybe one day soon, Ye may grace thee with his presence.
The famous festival in Miami, Rolling Loud, drew lots, but unfortunately, the rapper said, “Snake eyes.”
“Due to circumstances outside of our control, Ye will no longer be performing at Rolling Loud Miami 2022,” a tweet from the annual festival’s handle wrote on Sunday and revealed Kid Cudi as the rapper’s substitution.
The July 22 show was supposed to see Ye as the headliner, with the likes of 2 Chainz, Saweetie, Lil Yachty, Playboy Carti, Three 6 Mafia, and many more.
In a statement, Tariq Cherif and Matt Zingler, the Rolling Loud co-founders, stated that this was “the first time a headliner has ever pulled” out of a concert, but they wished West “the best.”
“We were looking forward to Ye headlining Rolling Loud Miami 2022. We spent months working with him and his team on the performance. Unfortunately, Ye has decided that he will no longer be performing,” according to the statement.
“This is the first time a headliner has ever pulled [out of] our show, and though we don’t take it lightly, we wish him the best. We look forward to welcoming Kid Cudi as a headliner in Miami, and we can’t wait to see what he has in store.”
While this might be unmatched for Rolling Loud, this is strongly in Ye’s deckhouse. The Weeknd and Swedish House Mafia took over headlining duties at Coachella this year after he pulled out less than two weeks before.
The cancellation happened briefly following the Grammys cancellation of his performance for “concerning online behavior.”
He did not play at Rolling Loud Miami last year because of the pushback on his newest album Donda.
However, at the minimum, Rolling Loud will never forget the last December 2021 show in California, where Ye surprised the crowd at the Nos Events Center in San Bernardino.
What can we do? Luck is random, and so is Ye.
