Kid Cudi made a statement during his Rolling Loud Miami performance.
On Friday night, Cudi walked off stage during his headlining performance when fans continued to bombard the performer with water bottles and other items onstage. Rolling Stone reported that Cudi was punched in the face with at least one water bottle.
In a video circulating on social media, Cudi is seen pleading with fans and saying, “I’m getting hit with another fucking thing, I’m gonna leave right now.”
Cudi continued to tell fans that if anything else was thrown he would leave and one fan threw another object onto the stage. He dropped his microphone and left the stage.

Cudi’s performance comes as he took over Kanye West’s place in the festival lineup after he dropped out last week. As Cudi left the stage, fans began chanting West’s name.
Although West didn’t perform during his title, he did make an appearance with Lil Durk where he performed a song from his “Life of Pablo” album.
When West pulled out of the festival, Rolling Loud co-founders Tariq Cherif and Matt Zingler released a statement.
“We were looking forward to Ye headlining Rolling Loud Miami 2022,” he began.
