The third annual Rolling Loud music festival kicked off in spectacular fashion yesterday at Miami's Bayfront Park with a crowd of over 40,000 excited fans traveling back and forth between two stages to see a bevy of hip-hop luminaries. Earlier in the day acts like Curren$y, Mac Miller and Lil Yachty leveled spectators with haymakers of musical hits and underground gems. At night, headliners Lil Wayne and A$AP Rocky were as illuminating onstage as pyrotechnics.
On the Monster Energy stage at the amphitheater at Bayfront, Weezy killed with fan favorites such as "Got Money," "Goin In" and "A Milli."
Meanwhile, Rocky and the A$AP Mob kept the energy high for his set with some women in the crowd even teasing to lift their shirts. Towards the end, "Wild For The Night" found the crowd getting showered with confetti.
"I hope nobody here has a inch of racist blood in their body," Rocky said with Lil Yachty and XXXTENCION watching from the side of the stage. "It don't fuckin matter if you're black or white or brown or yellow. We are one color and that's purple muthafucka. I just want to say I'm proud to be a part of this generation. I'm proud of y'all. Y'all make all of us look good. I love y'all muthafuckas straight up and down."
The Harlem trendsetter then asked for a moment of silence for his musical brother and friend A$AP Yams. The audience complied.
The music came back, and the Mob ended with the raucous "Yamborghini High."
"That shit was lit bro," Rocky said after changing clothes in his trailer and signing a fan's shirt. "It was a lot of energy. It was half naked women everywhere, hot people everywhere..."
"It was Nast everywhere," A$AP Nast said, sitting in front of Rocky on a golf cart.
"It was Rocky everywhere," Rock added.
The Mob headed to club Liv after the show, where they were joined by Lil Yachty.
