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.

Producer ’16yrold’ is just getting started. After debuting his music on the internet only a year ago, he’s earned himself a following. Fans anticipate his regular stream of releases and collaborations with other producers and he’s satiated them, but now he’s doing something he’s never done before: release a formal project. At this point, he’s already met and began talks of collaborating with artists he was merely a fan of a few months ago, as well as gaining attention for his eclectic remixes- ranging from reworks of songs by Yung Lean to Willow Smith to a mash-up of “Club Goin’ Up on a Tuesday” and “The Piña Colada Song” (which is quite amazing). I spoke with him about his new EP with Divine, Slayer, as well as his collaborators and how he got into the music scene.
