Rolling Loud Miami 2021: Since its inception, the largest hip-hop festival in the United States has been a place where artists of all calibers may express themselves on stage as they see appropriate. It was the same this year as it was last year.
It was amazing how different performers were able to modify the stage in order to accommodate their mind-bending performances. Others let the music and their smooth dancing movements do the talking.
Rolling Loud’s four stages were filled with musicians trying to make an impression on their followers and attract new ones throughout the course of the weekend. While some added a few shocks to the experience, others bared their souls to the world.
This weekend at Rolling Loud 2021, some of the greatest performances were presented alphabetically.
Top 10 Performances
1. City Girls
It’s always a holy experience to see the City Girls perform what they do best. ‘Twerkulator’ and ‘Act Up’ were among the songs that the Miami rap duo played for the crowd. When Saucy Santana approached the stage, the crowd immediately recognized his popular song “Walk.” Unshakeable confidence and enthusiastic energy radiated from the rappers. As it should be, City Girls’ song had fans screaming their lyrics at the tops of their lungs and twerking like crazy.
This was the most light set of Rolling Loud weekend, and DaBaby didn’t disappoint! The North Carolina native came out swinging to the tune of “Suge” in an all-white costume and a red hat, following Megan Thee Stallion. An sexy dancer joined him and a bed on stage to perform “Nasty.” DaBaby then invited a visitor to the stage who was wearing an enormous DaBaby head to conceal their identities.
Tory Lanez donned the huge head to perform “Scat” with partner DaBaby. The crowd went wild. There were more shocks in store. As part of the festival’s ticket reimbursement show, DaBaby invited Kay Kilo to toss a bundle of cash in the air. Even his own shoes and socks were given away! One of the craziest sets of the weekend, without a doubt!
3. Flo Milli
Flo Milli, a breakout sensation on the rap scene in 2021, delivered the performance of a lifetime on the Audiomack stage. In the background, a pink Y2K collage featured memes of Kourtney Kardashian and Tiffany Pollard, as well as pictures of the actors of the 2001 cult movie Mean Girls, aimed for her young adult audience. From her debut mixtape, Ho, Why Are You Here?, Flo Milli performed “May I,” “Like That Bitch,” and other songs.
Fans couldn’t get enough of “Flo Milli crap” — her famous catchphrase — as they twerked and pulsated to her tunes. With each song she releases, her feminine, yet punky style becomes more apparent, establishing her as one of the female rappers, and rappers in general, who are putting out viral hits.
4. Jack Harlow
Jack Harlow has emerged as one of hip-most hop’s intriguing figures of late. A few days after making a cameo in Lil Nas X’s “Industry Baby” video, the Generation Now musician took the Ciroc stage at Rolling Loud to perform his latest song. “What’s Poppin” was one of Harlow’s first hits. “Tyler Herro” was performed by Miami Heat wunderkind Tyler Herro after Harlow introduced comedian Druski.
Thereafter, “Already Best Friends” and “Warsaw” were among the tracks that the Kentucky rapper recorded. During the past two years, Harlow has been tipped as the next big thing. Considering the size of his crowd at Rolling Loud, it appears he’s become the famed rapper he’s always wanted to be.
5. Lil Baby
A number of notable performances have taken place this year, from his Grammys performance to his most recent appearance on Rolling Loud. For an hour on Saturday, he had Hard Rock Stadium on lock. “Get Money” and “Drip Too Hard” were among the first songs he sang. As he performed in a pristine white T-shirt and blue shorts, the diamonds in his chains and rings shone in the lighting. Energy from the crowd was contagious as the Georgia rapper rocked along with dancers equipped with water pistols.
6. Megan Thee Stallion
There was no limit to the number of hot girls in 2020. This is a state of mind for Megan Thee Stallion. In the eyes of Gen Z, her rapid rise has made her an idol. “Cry Baby” and “Freak Nasty” had the entire crowd — men, women, and everyone in between — shaking what their mothers gave them. Megan’s hotties had her back from start to finish, despite the fact that few performers can place their mics in front of the audience and receive much of a response. Fans will remember her concert for the rest of their lives.
7. Rico Nasty
They took the mosh pit to new heights. Are you feeling a little rusty? There are only a few days left to live! You’ve got to open that sucker up!” They opened up. The punk rapper had everyone in the audience leaping and yelling her heated lyrics with a middle finger pointing towards the sky as she delivered her savagely honest message.
Rico Nasty is a must-see for social media users who claim that Miami’s crowds are dull. In a bright red mullet and spiky skirt, she leapt across the stage. Tia Tamera, “OHFR?” and “Pussy Popper” were among the tunes she sang. Rico Nasty’s bars and stage graphics were distinct and powerful, too. Looking for a fierce screamo rap queen? Look no further.
This Jamaican rapper is on the upswing, according to his manager. Heartfelt and real, Shenseea’s performance enchanted audiences. Quite literally, she wore her country’s flag on her sleeve. However, her performance was full with gimmicks. During one of her performances, she took Famous Red onstage with her, and the two performed a twerking routine. As a result, her stage presence was unparalleled, and she energized the crowd, which was responsive and thrilled to be in attendance. It was a great introduction to her joyful, cheerful music for people who were new with it.
9. Travis Scott
Es gibt nichts Möglicheres als einen Ausflug zu Astroworld! During the second day of Rolling Loud, the man behind the sonic amusement park delivered his bright stage setup and booming voice. His concert began with a new song from his upcoming album Utopia, which he debuted during his set. It wasn’t long before he was back with another smash, “Highest in the Room,” as well as a verse on SZA’s “Love Galore.” Cactus Jack’s label name and a QR code were spelled out by green drones over the Ciroc stage, sending fans scurrying to capture photographs from wherever they were.
As he prepared to board his circular platform, Scott pulled out Migos to perform their song “Straightenin.” As he sang “Sicko Mode,” he hovered above the stage. As shown by the way the crowd shouted with shouts, Scott left them hungry for more.
Wale hasn’t been on the festival circuit for a while. Upon his arrival on the Audiomack stage, fans rushed to witness every second of his performance. He performed “Poledancer,” “Bad,” and “Sue Me.” It was obvious that Wale was loved every time the crowd sang his words back to him. The Washington, D.C., native brought out Eric Bellinger to play “G.O.A.T.” during his act. “On Chill” and “The Matrimony” were also performed by Wale with Bellinger on stage.
