The music publication cited a source close to the situation in reporting that West will perform Sunday, the final day of the three-day hip-hop festival at Hard Rock Stadium in Miami Gardens.

Tickets are already sold out for the event that is expected to bring tens of thousands of fans from across the country to see dozens of acts including Post Malone, Travis Scott, A$AP Rocky and Megan Thee Stallion.

West, 44, is expected to unveil his 10th studio album “Donda” during a listening event Thursday night at Mercedes Benz Stadium in Atlanta. His album was named after his mother, Donda West, who died at age 58 after plastic surgery complications in 2007.

The 22-time Grammy winner revealed this week that his highly-anticipated album will be released Friday.

On Monday, Rolling Loud sent something of a public invitation to Kanye — if not hinting at his appearance — asking in a tweet if he was “busy next weekend.”

You busy next weekend? @kanyewest

Video wall at Rolling Loud stage collapses; no reported injuries

WSVN 7News | Miami News, Weather, Sports | Fort Lauderdale 22 July, 2021 - 07:10pm

7Skyforce HD hovered above the south side of the stage as crews inspected and surveyed the venue, off Northwest 27th Avenue and 199th Street in Miami Gardens, at around 5:10 p.m., Thursday.

The wall that collapsed included video screens that crews had set up at one of the stages. They were not part of the event’s main stage.

It’s unclear what caused part of the structure to come down.

Miami-Dade Fire Rescue officials said they did not receive a call about the incident.

Crews have worked for over a week setting up multiple stages for this weekend’s festival.

Rolling Loud 2021 is set to kick off Friday. The three-day event will feature performances by hip-hop artists like A$AP Rocky, Travis Scott and Post Malone.
