Friday, Sept. 23, kicks off the third annual Rolling Loud New York festival.
Taking place at the Citi Field in Queens, Rolling Loud will feature Nicki Minaj performing her first headlining set with Rolling Loud on Friday, while A$AP Rocky takes on Saturday, Sept. 24 and Future closing things out Sunday, Sept. 25.
Rolling Loud New York was the center of attention on Thursday after the NYPD called for the franchise to remove rappers Sha Ek, Ron Suno, and 22Gz from the 2022 Rolling Loud New York Festival, according to the New York Times. This is the second time 22Gz has been removed from the Rolling Loud lineup.
“I was informed by Rolling Loud that NYPD is pulling us off the show. With no explanation,” said Diamond “Bo” Brown, Suno’s manager, via text. “How does a person who [has] no criminal record and no gang activities be denied to perform in his hometown after all his hard work, It’s crazy because he never even made a diss record.” Brown says festival organizers assured her that Suno would still be paid for the booking “and will hopefully be able to perform at later events.”
Rolling Loud New York will be hosted by Hakeem Rowe, YesJulz, and himynamestee. The livestream will broadcast performances from the FashionNova and D’usse stages for all three days via Youtube starting at 2 PM.
