AceShowbiz - Kid Cudi is filling in for Kanye West. The "Pursuit of Happiness" hitmaker is set to step in as the "Gold Digger" rapper's replacement at Rolling Loud Miami amid their ongoing beef.
The 38-year-old Grammy Award winner will headline the opening night of Rolling Loud on Friday, July 22, after the Miami hip-hop music festival announced Sunday, July 17 that Ye dropped out of the gig last minute "due to circumstances outside of our control."
"We were looking forward to Ye headlining Rolling Loud Miami 2022. We spent months working with him and his team on the performance," Rolling Loud co-founders Tariq Cherif and Matt Zingler said in a statement. "Unfortunately, Ye has decided that he will no longer be performing."
"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," the pair added.
The announcement came after Cudi said that he and Ye were "not cool" in April when they appeared together on the Pusha T track "Rock n Roll" from his new album "It's Almost Dry". "I did this song a year ago when I was still cool w Kanye. I am not cool w that man," Cudi tweeted at the time. "He's not my friend and I only cleared the song for Pusha cuz thats my guy. This is the last song u will hear me on w Kanye."
Although Cudi and Ye squashed their feud in 2016, they sparked a new beef in February when the Yeezy designer announced that Cudi would not appear on his "Donda 2" album because of his friendship with Pete Davidson, who is dating his ex-wife Kim Kardashian.
"Just so everyone knows Cudi will not be on Donda because he's friends with you-know-who," Ye wrote at the time, prompting Cudi to reply, "Too bad I don't wanna be on ur album u f**king dinosaur hahaha. Everyone knows I've been the best thing about ur albums since I met u. Ima pray u for [sic] brother."
"We talked weeks ago about this. You're whack for flipping the script and posting this lie just for a look on the internet. You ain't no friend. BYE," Cudi added. "God opens the door so the wrong people can exit ur life."
