A$AP Rocky Will Reportedly Headline Rolling Loud NYC

The Rolling Loud hip hop festival will make its way to the Big Apple in October. Per the festival's social media pages, Travis Scott, A$AP Rocky, Meek Mill, Lil Uzi Vert and the Wu-Tang Clan will reportedly headline the two day event.

Aside from the aforementioned artists, DMX, Fat Joe, Megan Thee Stallion, Rico Nasty, Young M.A., YG, DaBaby, and many many more will take to the stage at Citi Field from Oct. 12 to 13. Tickets are slated to go on sale via Ticketmaster on Friday (Jul. 26) at 10 a.m. EST.

The news comes on the third week of A$AP Rocky's incarceration. The A$AP Mob member and Harlem native was reportedly arrested in Sweden for allegedly assaulting a person on the street. Donald Trump, thanks to urging from Kim Kardashian and Kanye West, is attempting to help free the rapper, however, it was reported earlier today (Jul. 22) that his efforts may make matters worse for A$AP.

Peep the Rolling Loud lineup below.

Trump's Interference In A$AP Rocky's Case May Actually Make Matters Worse

According to reports, there’s a chance that Donald Trump’s call to the Swedish Prime Minister about A$AP Rocky’s removal may result in a worse scenario than originally anticipated.

Per TMZ, the prosecutor has reportedly been “immovable” on release pending charges, even though members of the United States State Dept. have also gotten involved in addition to Trump. The State Department reportedly tried to get the rapper out of jail last Thursday to no avail.

“Sources connected to the case actually think intervention by the State Dept. and the President -- who essentially said he would guarantee bail if they would release Rocky -- could actually BACKFIRE because they are trying to get in the prosecutor's business.”

The Prime Minister reportedly told 45 that “everyone is equal under the law” in Sweden, and that “the [U.S.] government cannot and will not attempt to influence the legal proceedings."

Last week, it was reported that Kim Kardashian and Kanye West contacted Trump about helping to facilitate Rocky’s removal. "I personally don't know A$AP Rocky but I can tell you he has tremendous support from the African American community in this country,” he said in a press conference last week.

Lil Nas X's "Old Town Road" Ties Record For Longest-Running Number One Of All Time

For the 16th week in a row, Lil Nas X’s hit “Old Town Road” sits atop the Billboard Hot 100. This means that the track from the 20-year-old ATLien is tied for the longest-running No. 1 of all time.

According to reports, the single from the 7 EP ties Luis Fonsi, Daddy Yankee and Justin Bieber’s ”Despacito," as well as Mariah Carey and Boyz II Men's "One Sweet Day” for the record. If he stays at No. 1 for one more week, he will be the first song in the history of American popular music to reign for an unprecedented 17 weeks.

The initial song made waves  earlier this year after getting the boot from Billboard’s Country charts for allegedly not implementing enough elements of the genre. Since then, “Old Town Road” has seen three featured artists on two separate remixes– Billy Ray Cyrus, Young Thug and Mason Ramsey. Last week, country music icon Dolly Parton hinted at hopping on the song’s next remix.

Do you think “Old Town Road” will set a new record next week? Sound off in the comments.
