The festival announced earlier Tuesday that the “Just Wanna Rock” rapper would headline Rolling Loud California in March
Lil Uzi Vert took to Instagram Tuesday to dispute that they agreed to play Rolling Loud California in March 2024, just hours after the event had announced the “Just Wanna Rock” rapper as the festival’s Sunday headliner.
“I never said I was doing rolling loud,” Uzi, who uses they/them pronouns, wrote in an Instagram story. Don’t understand why my name is on here.”
The miscommunication is unexpected, particularly given that Uzi has played Rolling Loud events multiple times over the past several years, including at Rolling Loud California 2023 last March.
Reps for Uzi and Rolling Loud didn’t immediately respond to Rolling Stone‘s request for comment.
Rolling Loud is scheduled for next March 15 to 17, and so far Uzi is the only artist to question the announced lineup. Nicki Minaj and Post Malone were announced as headliners for Friday and Saturday, and Rae Sreummurd, Big Sean, Don Toliver, Sexyy Red and YG and Tyga are all slated to perform as well.
This is a developing story and will be updated as more information is available.
