When you’re running a hip-hop festival, you better be prepared for a few speed bumps along the way. This weekend, Rolling Loud suffered more than a couple of complications, having to scramble last minute to change things up in order to keep their audience satisfied. Before arriving at the stadium, Kodak Black was arrested and upon arriving to Rolling Loud, Lil Wayne decided that he wasn’t going to let police search him, opting to cancel his headlining spot mere hours before he was scheduled to hit the stage. On the final day of the festival, NBA YoungBoy was involved in a fatal shooting nearby. His girlfriend was reportedly struck by gunfire and her condition is unknown but as a result of his involvement in the incident, it is being reported that the Baton Rouge rapper was arrested.
According to Bossip, NBA YoungBoy is one of seven people that have been detained after the shooting happened near the Trump International Beach Resort Miami. A 43-year-old man was killed and YoungBoy’s girlfriend, 19-year-old Kaylyn Marie Long, was wounded. It’s unclear what the rapper’s involvement in the shooting was but several reports have stated that somebody opened fire on YoungBoy and his team retaliated.
YoungBoy Never Broke Again was scheduled to perform at Rolling Loud yesterday. He does not appear to be in police custody anymore with the above social update happening a few hours ago.
