This weekend was the Rolling Loud Festival in Miami and for some reason, this year was crazier than ever. In good and bad ways. Bad news is, the police were heavy on the artists performing to the point where Lil Wayne announced that he would not be performing at the show due to “police making it mandatory to be checked to get on the stadium grounds.” He continued to say in his tweet, “I do not and will not ever settle for being policed to do my job and give you guys a great show.”
NBA Young Boy was involved in a shooting that resulted in the death of one person and injured two others. Witnesses say NBA and his crew got into an argument with a group of men that escalated to gunplay. NBA’s alleged girlfriend was one of the people reportedly shot during incident along with a bullet allegedly grazing a 5-year-old. Witnesses say an innocent bystander was the man who was killed, identified as 43-year-old Mohammad Jradi.
NBA Young Boy did make it to his set to perform at Rolling Loud. Another shooting took place shortly after, in which the driver was shot, but suffered non-life-threatening injuries.
On Friday, Young Thug’s DJ was shot during a drive by, and on Saturday, Chicago rapper Hella Bandz was killed in a shooting in a Miami nightclub.
Kodak Black was also arrested on Saturday on his way to perform at Rolling Loud.
