Rolling Loud Reveals The Greatest Hip-Hop Lineup of All-Time

rolling loud festival

 

Rolling Loud Festival 2018 in Miami, Fl is by far the greatest hip-hop festival lineup ever assembled bar-none. The lineup is so outrageous that it would honestly be easier to name the notable rappers not attending then trying to highlight the more than two dozen absolutely can’t miss acts of the 3-day hip-hop and trap hoedown.

By my estimation, they weren’t able to book Jay-Z, Kendrick Lamar, Kanye West, Run The Jewels, Jeezy, Big Boi, Chance The Rapper, and Fabolous and Jadakiss, and that’s it. Every other act making waves in contemporary hip-hop is going to be converging on South Beach for what is 100 percent going to be the most epic weekend in the history of rap music.

Headliners Travis Scott, Future, and J.Cole are heading up a lineup that boasts an intergenerational gathering of emcee’s the likes of which has never been seen before. Action Bronson, The Diplomats, Lil Yachty, Lil Wayne, Cardi B, Rick Ross, Lil Uzi Vert, Wiz Khalifa, Jaden Smith, Young Thug, Juicy J, Playboy Cardi, NERD, and the list of headliner caliber artists continues. Rolling Loud has brought together so many hip-hop heavyweights that the single genre lineup still easily competes with the lineups of history’s most hallowed festivals.

Basically, this is hip-hop’s Woodstock.

With all the crazy upper-card performers it would be easy to lose track of the many wonderful under-card acts. Word to the wise, to catch hip-hop’s next up make sure to be on the festival grounds Sunday afternoon for 3-piece hip-hop dynamo Injury Reserve. With just a little more than 3-years under their belts as a serious hip-hop project, Injury Reserve is one the most exciting group’s out right now and it will not be too much longer before the reigning music video champions of Phoenix, Arizona are no longer a hot up-and-comer and instead are residing firmly on top.
