Watch the official music video for ‘What’s The Move’ below.
Young Thug has recruited some all-star talent for his new track, ‘The London’.
Teaming up with J. Cole and Travis Scott, the rap trio makes for a perfect combination on the new track. The song artwork was revealed earlier this week during Thugger’s “Meet Me At The London” livestream, which centered on a female subject painting a spider, while another subject filled a pinata with Skittles, before the song arrived to fans as a surprise.
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.
With highly anticipated performances from J. Cole, Lil Uzi Vert, N.E.R.D, Young Thug, Tory Lanez, The Diplomats, Russ and many more, fans had a ton of artists to choose from on Friday. 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?
Following a string of festival performances throughout the country, including headlining performances at Rolling Loud and Summerfest, J. Cole will hit the road for a headlining tour of his own, with special guest Young Thug.
Kicking off on August 9th, at Miami’s American Airlines Arena, J. Cole’s KOD tour will make stops in Dallas, Anaheim, Chicago, Las Vegas, New Orleans and many more, until the tour concludes on October 10th in Boston.
This will be one of the hottest tours of the summer and fall, so be sure to get your tickets when they go on sale May 12th at 10AM (local time) at LiveNation.com.
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.
Some of the biggest emerging names in rap & hip-hop took over the Windy City last night, as Adam Torres Concerts’The Freshmen concert with Cardi B, Young Thug, A Boogie Wit Da Hoodie, PNB Rock and Young M.A invaded the UIC Pavilion.
From PNB Rock joining A Boogie Wit Da Hoodie (who is celebrating the release of his debut album) on stage, to Cardi B performing her hit single and the biggest song in the world right now, ‘Bodak Yellow’, and of course Thugger’s entertaining headlining set, the entire night was full of highlights from start to finish. If you were a rap fan in the Midwest, there was no better place to be than the University of Chicago-Illinois campus last night, as no fan left disappointed.
What was maybe most impressive about tonight’s lineup is the sheer star power of young talent across the entire cast of artists. Cardi B has become an overnight mega star, and is on her way to becoming the next big thing in rap. A Boogie Wit Da Hoodie is more than on the verge, and don’t be surprised if he continues to blow with his new debut LP. Young Thug is one of the most exciting rappers out of the ATL, with no signs of slowing down. And Young M.A and PNB Rock are two artists that keep the ladies in the crowd wanting more, both with promising careers ahead.
Be sure to take a look at tonight’s lineup a year from today, just to see how tonight’s artists continue to grow.

As expected, King Kendrick killed it tonight for the sold out crowd at Rolling Loud 2017. With headlining sets from Kendrick Lamar and Young Thug, and supporting performances from other top names in rap, including Run The Jewels, Action Bronson, Joey Bada$$, as well as sets from emerging stars in the genre like Florida-native XXXTentacion, Jazz Cartier and Dreezy, the Miami festival continued to provide the best rap lineup in music festivals to date.
Check out our photos below, of what the second day of Rolling Loud had to offer this year. Tomorrow will mark the last day of the mega rap festival.
Forget Coachella! When it comes to rap and hip-hop, Rolling Loud has the best lineup of all summer music festivals, and it isn’t even close. With headlining performances from Kendrick Lamar, Future and Lil Wayne, supporting performances from Run The Jewels and Migos, and sets from emerging names in rap like XXXTentacion, Rolling Loud is stacked from top to bottom.
And if you aren’t yet familiar, Rolling Loud will take place next month at Miami’s Bayfront Park from May 5th through the 7th. The festival is all ages and rain or shine, and no matter what the conditions Rolling Loud is the place to be next month.
So while anyone can enjoy Rolling Loud, whether stone cold sober or a rolling loud stoner, we are celebrating 4/20 with music, by sharing our 10 Most Anticipated Performers for Rolling Loud!
WGCI’s Big Jam returned this year to the United Center with featured performances of the biggest names in business. The sold out show continued.
Chicago natives came in strive with performances from G-Herbo, Lil Bibby, and Dreezy. The Chicago fans came to represent with an early crowd to support the local talent. G-Herbo and Lil Bibby joined forces sharing the stage starting off Big Jam. Dreezy wasted no time showing love to the hometown crowd. The only female artist on the lineup made sure she dominated her performance.
The strict time schedule was a definite mood killer with sets being cut short, but with so many big names on just one lineup, what else can you do? Without proper goodbyes from the artist though, it created some confusing moments in the energy filled night.
Fan favorite Lil Yatchy added his personal flare to the star-studded event. Hit records like “Night”, “Minnesota”, and “Broccoli” had the sold out crowd wanting more.
Definitely one of the most talked about performance of the evening came from Desiigner. Desiigner from start to finish left Big Jam fans in awe. His adrenaline filled set was a spectacle, you couldn’t look away.
A true crowd pleasure, a.k.a. Mr. Steal Your Girl, Trey Songz had the sold out crowd in a complete frenzy. The roaring was matched with Songz’ charismatic performance. With some speculation to whether or not Songz was going to perform due to an onstage breakdown of stage equipment last week. Songz didn’t disappoint the United Center with his stellar performance.
Co-heading Big Jam was R&B juggernaut Chris Brown. Brown a true showman used every inch of the platform to dance every single of his signature hits. Brown led the United Center in the ultimate dance party. Without skipping a beat Brown didn’t stop giving one second of a showstopper performance.
Young Thug ended the night with some of his crowd favorites. Young Thug’s performance was unfortunately cut short due to his allotted set time. Regardless of the awkward transitions and premature ending sets Big Jam was one big Chicago house party. There wasn’t a better way to close off 2016 then seeing some of the best is hip-hop and R&B.
Last year the 107.5 WGCI Big Jam saw some awesome performances from Kendrick Lamar, Future, Vic Mensa and Twista just to name a few, and this year the Big Jam is returning to the United Center and with a lineup that even rivals last year’s huge artists.
Performing at this year’s Big Jam, which will take place on December 30th at the United Center, will be Chris Brown, Young Thug, Trey Songz, Lil Yachty, Desiigner, G Herbo and Lil Bibby! Needless to say, you will want to get your tickets ASAP, because they will surely go fast.
