Things changed just as fans were beginning to believe that Kanye West wouldn’t be performing at Rolling Loud Miami. As with his cancellation of Coachella earlier this year, it was revealed this week that West will no longer be performing as the event’s headliner.
The moment West’s replacement was needed, Rolling Loud set to work finding someone to take his place. Kid Cudi, a former friend of West’s with whom he recently had an online public falling out, was eventually found. But just now, videos showing West not only performing but also stunning the crowd by showing up during Lil Durk’s performance went viral.
Even if Ye’s performance may not have lived up to expectations for many of his admirers, the mere fact that the Donda hit-maker showed up caused an uproar among the crowd. Meanwhile, Cudi had issues with the crowd hurling objects at him, some of which made contact, during his performance. It has been rumored but not confirmed that this came from West’s followers.

They called Cudi’s bluff when he angrily threatened to leave if anything else was thrown onto the stage, and he left as a result. According to reports, West was simultaneously performing “Father Stretch My Hands, Pt. 1,” his collaboration with Cudi, on Durk’s set.
