J. Cole’s Dreamville Festival is returning to North Carolina, a few years after it’s inaugural year, and the lineup is already one of the best in 2022.
This is definitely not a festival that you’ll want to miss as the J. Cole curated music festival will feature performances from Lil Baby, Kehlani, Lil Wayne, T.I., Bia, Earthgang, J.I.D., Wale, T-Pain and of course Cole himself.
The festival will take place on April 2nd and the 3rd at Raleigh’s beautiful Dorothea Dix Park, the city’s largest city park with over 300 acres of greenspace. Fans can visit the Dreamville Festival website for tickets and more information.

Rolling Loud always delivers. After dominating music festival lineups for the past few years, consistently delivering the best cast of rappers to it’s flagship Miami festival, the stacked festival delivered it’s highly anticipated 2022 lineup on Tuesday night.
Headlining Rolling Loud this year will be Ye (Kanye West), Future and Kendrick Lamar; but the fun doesn’t stop there as the undercard is stacked with artists who would otherwise be headliners at most music festivals like Lil Uzi Vert, Lil Baby, Dababy, Playboi Carti, Lil Durk and more. Other rappers set to perform include 2 Chainz, Three 6 Mafia, Saweetie, Gunna, Gucci Mane, City Girls, Soulja Boy, Kodak Black, Baby Keem and Trippie Redd, to name a few.
Rolling Loud will take place at Miami’s Hard Rock Stadium on July 22-24. Tickets for the festival go on sale Monday, March 7th here.

Rappers Future and Juice WRLD have combined forces for the hottest new collab of the month.
Titled ‘Fine China’, the Atlanta and Illinois natives make for an awesome duo on the new track, and hopefully just the first of many more to come in the future. Juice WRLD and Future have been in the studio for the past couple weeks, and fans are desperately hoping for a collaborative album to come.
We shouldn’t really need to spell out reasons of why you need to attend Rolling Loud this year, the stacked lineup practically sells itself, but we’re going to anyways.
Not only is the rap music festival in Miami arguably the best music festival of the year (for a second straight year), but fans will have opportunities to hear a bunch of exclusive performances for the first time. From La Flame to Postey and more, you can expect a number of artists to make some live debuts at Rolling Loud.
Check out our list of our five reasons you can’t miss Rolling Loud 2018 below.
It’s the best festival lineup of the year
Let’s be real, for the second straight year, Rolling Loud’s Miami festival has the best lineup of all music festivals. Perhaps even the greatest rap festival lineup of all-time, this year’s lineup boasts performances from Future, J. Cole, Travis Scott, Lil Wayne, N.E.R.D., Lil Uzi Vert, Young Thug, Post Malone, Russ and many more. From Friday to Sunday, start to finish, Rolling Loud has the best rappers in the game right now!
Party like a rockstar to Beerbongs & Bentleys
Post Malone is celebrating the release of his brand new album, Beerbongs and Bentleys, and fans will get a chance to hear Post perform the album’s tracks live at Rolling Loud this year. Don’t be surprised if Post Malone makes a number of live performance debuts from the new LP in Miami next month.
New music from Travis Scott?
Travis Scott possibly had the best set at Rolling Loud last year, and you should expect him to deliver the same energy for his performance this year. Anything can happen at the night show, even the debut of new music. Travis Scott told fans on Twitter today that this week is the week that fans eat, which likely means new music. Scott and Kanye West hinted at the release of a brand new collaboration with Lil Uzi Vert, so perhaps La Flame and Uzi will perform the track at Rolling Loud. Wishful thinking!
The undercard is ridiculously good
It’s not just the headliners that make Rolling Loud 2018 so great! A simply review of the festival poster will show you how deep the lineup really is this year. You shouldn’t only be excited for J. Cole and Travis Scott, you also need to get excited for Smino, Jaden Smith, Juvenile, Bas, Lil Xan, Wifisfuneral and J.I.D. to name a few.
Be one of the first to hear KOD live
J. Cole just released his new record breaking album, KOD, and it’s an instant fan favorite. Cole’s loyal fan base will definitely come in waves for Rolling Loud 2018, and Rolling Loud will be Cole’s first U.S. performance since releasing the album. Therefore it will be your first chance to hear the new LP live and in person. Needless to say, you’ll want to be at Rolling Loud in person as J. Cole shuts thing down on Friday night.
Rolling Loud has revealed it’s highly anticipated lineup for 2018. And again, the Miami-based rap festival has delivered and then some.
Performing at Rolling Loud this year, at the festival’s new site, the Hard Rock Stadium (home of the Miami Dolphins), will be J. Cole, Travis Scott, Future, N.E.R.D., Lil Uzi Vert, Young Thug, Cardi B, Lil Wayne, Migos, Post Malone and many many more.
Tickets for Rolling Loud 2018, go on sale February 2nd at 10 AM, so don’t waste anytime because this one is sure to sell out. This year the festival takes place from May 11-13, and is an all ages event.

Did Future just response to Jay-Z’s subliminals on his 4:44 opener, ‘Kill Jay Z’? Fans are saying yes as Future sent out a Snapchat that answers back to Hov.
“I don’t even know what you wouldve done. In the “future”, other n****s playin’ football with your son.” – Jay-Z on ‘Kill Jay Z’
While Jay was clearly referring to Future’s son and Seattle Seahawks quarterback, Russell Wilson, who is now married to Future’s ex and baby-mama, Ciara, Future decided to respond with a fat stack of hundreds. Taking to Snapchat, Future holds a stack of 100 dollar bills to his ear, with the caption reading, “U ain’t got the juice like dat. MOOD.”
Fans interpreted this caption as a reference to Jay-Z’s 4:44 track, ‘The Story of O.J.’ where Jay raps “Y’all on the gram holdin’ money to your ear, there’s a disconnect, we don’t call that money over here.”
Although Future was recently listed on Jay-Z’s list of rappers who inspire him, Future wasn’t going to let Jay-Z’s diss go unanswered.
Check out Future’s Snapchat response to Jay below.
Nobody was safe in Chicago last night, as some of the biggest names in rap today ravaged through the Hollywood Casino Amphitheatre in Tinley Park, IL, just minutes outside of the Windy City. Bringing the ATL to Chicago, with headlining performances from Future and the Migos, fans at the Nobody Safe Tour last night also saw supporting sets from artists like A$AP Ferg, Tory Lanez and Zoey Dollaz, an impressive lineup from top to bottom.
Kicking things off for the Illinois crowd was Freebandz‘s own Zoey Dollaz, who just last month dropped his new 12-track mixtape which shares a name with the tour, and has features from Future, PnB Rock and more. “The inspiration for the mixtape is just something we got from this upcoming tour,” Dollaz told XXL. Dollaz opening set included performances of his tracks ‘Blow A Check’ and Bad Tings’.
Next up was the A$AP Mob’s A$AP Ferg, who stepped in big time for the tour after rapper Kodak Black was removed from the tour due to his recent legal troubles. And while Kodak Black is certainly one of the more entertaining rappers in 2017, the addition of A$AP Ferg was praised by fans everywhere. Ferg continued to warm up the crowd with a 20-minute set full of songs like ‘Shabba’, ‘Hella Hoes’ and ‘Work’.
Keeping things on a high note, Tory Lanez blessed the crowd with one of his always entertaining performances. Going back-and-forth between his rap songs for the fellas in the crowd and his R&B jams for the ladies of Chicago, and even taking time to dive into the crowd, as they lifted him up to the sky, Tory Lanez killed it and made his case for headlining the Amphitheatre one day.
With energy levels at a high, the Migos were met with screams throughout the crowd as the Atlanta trio began their 75-minute set, performing a number of tracks from their new LP, Culture, as well as some of their fan favorites from throughout the past half-decade. While Quavo, Offset and Takeoff had the audience dabbing and dancing throughout their performance, highlights of their set included their performances of ‘Look At My Dab’ and ‘Bad and Boujee’. Many may argue that it’s just a matter of time before Quavo, who has given solo features to a number of big hits for various artists this past year, goes solo, but don’t expect those predictions to come to life as Migos, as an entire collective, has an unmatched stage presence that leaves audiences wanting more and last night was no exception.
Then, just as you’d think the night couldn’t get anymore wild, Future Hendrix greeted his Chicago fans to close out the night. And when you’re headlining a night supported by the Migos, as he did a few weeks ago at Rolling Loud and now on the Nobody Safe Tour, not only is that high praise but it’s a tough challenge to follow one of the biggest rap groups of the past decade. And last night Future was certainly up for the challenge, and the Dirty Sprite rapper succeeded and then some.
Future kept the crowd engaged with a catalog of his number one hits, B-sides and fan favorites, and when you have two albums from 2017 alone, and 100+ tracks from his mixtapes and albums since 2010, you have plenty of tracks to choose from. The night wouldn’t have been complete though without some must-hear songs, including ‘Too Much Sauce’, ‘Move That Dope’, ‘Mask Off’ and ‘Draco’, just to name a few. And if performances from Zoey Dollaz, A$AP Ferg, Tory Lanez, Migos and 20-tracks from Future weren’t enough, Future returned to the stage after his set for a memorable encore performance. Fans got their money’s worth early in the night, but mega acts in rap like Migos and Future made the night one that Tinley Park won’t forget anytime soon.

After performing the track together for thousands at Coachella, the official Kendrick Lamar-assisted remix to Future’s hit single ‘Mask Off’ has been released for fans. Still with it’s original production from Metro Boomin, the ‘Mask Off’ remix features a showstopping fast paced verse from K Dot.
With both rappers on the verge of their big summer tours, there will be a lot of opportunities to hear ‘Mask Off’ live, even if the two elite rappers don’t perform the track on-stage together again.
While 2017 marked the third year for Miami’s Rolling Loud music festival, this was the first year that the festival really skyrocketed to its elite status. Rivaling lineups from top tier festivals like Coachella, Lollapalooza and Bonnaroo, Rolling Loud put together arguably the greatest rap and hip-hop lineup in the history of music festivals. With top names in rap like Kendrick Lamar, Future, Lil Wayne, Migos and Travis Scott and emerging stars like Jazz Cartier, XXXTentacion, 21 Savage and more, everyone in attendance this past weekend saw 3-days of amazing performances that they will not soon forget.
