"The Miami scene is huge in my eyes," says Dope Entertainment cofounder Tariq Cherif, "and somehow, it's still slept on."
But he and business partner Matt Zingler got a plan for taking the 305 to the world. It's the Rolling Loud Music Festival, set to turn up on February 28 at Soho Studios in Wynwood.
The fest's lineup is stacked. There are underground Miami rap stars like Denzel Curry, Pouya, and Yung Simmie. And there are big, bold names like Action Bronson, Schoolboy Q, A$AP Ferg, Juicy J, and Curren$y too.
Just check the cut for the full Rolling Loud roster.
