New year, new location, new lineup, but the one thing that didn’t change is the amazing experience that Rolling Loud provides to fans in Miami. Now held at the Hard Rock Stadium in Miami Gardens, the world’s premiere rap music festival kicked off it’s amazing 2018 lineup today.

Where else can you see Lil Uzi Vert try to top his viral 2017 performance and hear cuts from J. Cole’s brand new album, KOD?
If you haven’t heard the name by now, get ready to know the St. Louis and Chicago-affiliated MC, Smino, as the talented rapper has signed his first major record deal, with Interscope Records. Whether you know him from his collaboration with Chance The Rapper or one of his fan favorite solo tracks, Smino is easily one of our favorite emerging rappers. Up until this point, Smino’s rise has been all him, so with a major label backing him up, Smino is about to make some serious noise in the rap game.
After appearing in headlines earlier this week, with the leak of his Chance The Rapper, Jeremih and Big Sean collaboration ‘Living Single’, emerging rapper Smino has dropped a track of his own, with his previously unreleased record ‘Kajun’. The song was recently performed acoustically by the St. Louis rapper, during his recent interview on Soulection Radio with Joe Kay, but you can check it out now. ‘Kajun’ is with Jean Deaux and Phoelix, and is produced by fellow Zero Fatigue artist, Monte Booker.
Reportedly an extra and unreleased track from his recent LP, Coloring Book, Chicago’s Chance The Rapper has released an all-star collaboration with ‘Living Single’. Recruiting the talents of GOOD Music‘s Big Sean, St. Louis MC Smino and fellow Windy City native, Jeremih, ‘Living Single’ is stacked. Everyone holds their own on this one, from the record’s gospel influenced vocals throughout the track to Smino, Chance and Sean’s equally impressive verses. According to rumors, this track was originally supposed to feature J. Cole, which would have made the collaboration even bigger. Let’s only hope that Chance has even more collaborations in the vault.
