Ultimately, it worked out for the best.
Rolling Loud Miami went down this past weekend and in short, it was eventful. With performances from some of the biggest names in hip-hop, as well as the most promising up-and-comers, it lived up to the standards of hip-hop's biggest festival. Unfortunately, one person who wasn't able to make it was G Herbo who was set to perform on Sunday but unfortunately, the rapper wasn't able to make it.
G Herbo issued an apology to his fans and the organizers of Rolling Loud for missing his performance on Sunday, which may have actually worked out for the best. The rapper explained that he was trying his hardest to make sure that he could perform at the festival but the judge on his case didn't give him the required permission to travel.
"I've been trying to make it all week. My judge told me I couldn't come, couldn't do the show," he said. "I've been trying to pull all kinds of strings, call in earlier, court arraignments, you know, go back in chambers with the judge. Unfortunately, I wasn't able to go out and do it... I don't know if this was up to my P.I. team or whatever. I just didn't want to let too much time go by with everyone's questions unanswered."
Skipping out of Rolling Loud Miami may have been for the better. There were a ton of mishaps that occurred during this weekend's festival which seems largely due to the police presence. The founders of Rolling Loud issued a statement on Saturday morning after rumors of an active shooter on the grounds began to take off on the Internet. Additionally, they lost two of their major performers, Lil Wayne, and Kodak Black. The former canceled his set after he refused to be checked in my police while the latter was arrested on state and federal firearms charges ahead of his performance.
