Miami's inaugural Rolling Loud Music Festival came loaded with primo stoner and underground rap talent, from Schoolboy Q to Juicy J, A$AP Ferg, Action Bronson, Curren$y, and Miami's own Denzel Curry, as well as dozens of others.
This is a city that's inundated with hip-hop fans and culture, yet it's subject to a strange dearth of accessible rap shows. Most of the good stuff goes to the expensive South Beach scene. And a touring fest like Rock the Bells hasn't come to the 305 in years.
This past weekend's Rolling Loud was Miami's attempt at "an Ultra for hip-hop." A place where fans could hang out for the day and wild out to bold-name stars while also exploring some interesting up-and-comers.
We wish the actual event was as dope as the lineup. But it was a mess.
