Swings and roundabouts, people. Swings and roundabouts. Ye might have taken Kid Cudi off Donda 2, however Cudi is now changing Ye because the headliner for night time one in every of Rolling Loud Miami. Kanye West, often known as Ye, pulled out of Rolling Loud Miami on July 17, lower than per week earlier than the occasion. Luckily, Kid Cudi was there to step in. “We were looking forward to Ye headlining Rolling Loud Miami 2022. We spent months working with him and his team on the performance. Unfortunately, Ye has decided that he will no longer be performing,” Rolling Loud Co-Founders Tariq Cherif and Matt Zingler stated in an announcement. “This is the first time a headliner has ever pulled off our show and though we don’t take it lightly, we wish him the best. We look forward to welcoming Kid Cudi as a headliner in Miami and we can’t wait to see what he has in store.”

Ye and Cudi had been buds, till West determined Cudi was too chummy with Pete Davidson. So he pulled Cudi off Donda 2. Cudi addressed the state of affairs when Pusha T’s “Rock and Roll” dropped, tweeting “I did this song a year ago when I was still cool w Kanye. I am not cool w that man. He’s not my friend and I only cleared the song for Pusha cuz thats my guy.” The beef stays, at least publicly, unsquashed.
