It’s not the first time Kanye has dropped out at a major music festival. He pulled off a similar stunt when he retired from Coachella in April 2022

Kanye West, who was all set to headline Rolling Loud next weekend, dropped out of the festival, angering his loyal fans. Festival organizers then decided to use Kanye’s friend and foe Kid Cudi as his replacement. This created quite a bit of internet chaos as many felt that Travis Scott would have been the perfect choice instead of Cudi.

It’s not the first time Kanye West has dropped out at a major music festival. In April, the ‘Donda’ hitmaker pulled off a similar stunt when he stepped down from headlining Coachella two weeks before the main event. Speaking of Rolling Loud, Kanye West has yet to address the issue. However, the festival organizers shared a reason for the unannounced changes.

Taking to Twitter, the Rolling Loud official account blasted Kanye West’s departure as headliner, saying, “Due to circumstances beyond our control, Ye will no longer be appearing at Rolling Loud Miami 2022.” They added, “Please say hello to @KiDCuDi!”. The three-day celebration will also see rappers Future and Kendrick Lamar as headliners.

The publication Deadline reached out to Rolling Loud co-founders Tariq Cherif and Matt Zingler to clarify why Kanye pulled out of the festival. “We’ve been excited for Ye to headline Rolling Loud Miami 2022. We worked with him and his team on the performance for months. Unfortunately, Ye has decided that he will no longer perform,” they said in the joint statement on his departure. The duo added, “This is the first time a headliner has pulled off our show and while it’s not something we take lightly, we wish them the best. We look forward to welcoming Kid Cudi to Miami as a headliner and can’t wait to see what he has in store.” A post on Twitter claimed Kanye appeared to have backed away from organizers unwilling to give Travis Scott to bring.

Kid Cudi, who comes in as the headliner, seems interesting as he and Kanye had a falling out in April 2022 after being friends since 2008. Kanye reportedly didn’t approve of Kid Cudi being friends with Pete Davidson since the latter is dating his ex-wife Kim Kardashian. Kid Cudi made it clear in a tweet that he wasn’t cool with this man (Kanye) and that he wasn’t his friend. Speaking of the festival, Rolling Loud Miami will be held July 22-24 at Hard Rock Stadium.

The next tweeted: “What’s up y’all drops or any festival damn it.” And another said: “To say Kanye is coming for months and then just days before revealing that you actually replaced him with Kid Cudi is is quite a nifty trick. I’ve already paid to see cudi headlining 2 other festivals this year. Y’all really need to get this all right and offer some kind of refund.” One user concluded, “We’re open no matter what but wtf is that why Cudi Bro might make Carti headlines too.”
