And we talk to the festival co-founder about its obstacles, fanbase, and unmatched line-up.

The weekend-long Rolling Loud music festival taking place in Miami commences today. And while heavyweight headliners such as Kendrick Lamar, Lil Wayne, Future, Young Thug and A$AP Rocky will be there, as has been advertised for weeks, two MCs originally slated for the bill will miss their sets due to legal reasons. Kodak Black and Kevin Gates who were booked for the festival are still in jail and obviously won't be onstage.

However, yesterday during a press conference at Bayfront Park, home of this weekend's festival, co-founder Tariq Cherif announced that the rappers' replacements have been solidified. YG and Gucci Mane have been added to the bill, along with the King of the South himself, T.I.

Cherif proudly described Rolling Loud as the "hip-hop lineup of the century" with over 50 artists, 30 hours of performances, and 40,000 fans a day.
