Lil Uzi Vert has claimed that they never agreed to perform a headlining set at Rolling Loud‘s California festival in March next year.
The ‘Just Wanna Rock’ rapper – who uses they/them pronouns – took to Instagram to post a story last night (November 14) hours after the rap and hip-hop festival unveiled its 2024 line-up for California. Besides Lil Uzi Vert, Nicki Minaj and Post Malone were also named as headliners.
However, Uzi wrote on their Instagram Story: “I never said I was doing rolling loud don’t understand why my name is on here”. The rapper also tagged the Rolling Loud account.
At the time of publishing, Rolling Loud has yet to clarify on the matter. Lil Uzi Vert has in the past performed at multiple Rolling Loud festivals, including Rolling Loud California 2023 and the debut edition of Rolling Loud Thailand this year.
