Later, the concert was resumed when FlatBed Freestyle’s 26-year-old artist returned to the stage and even played some of his brand-new tracks in Rolling Loud California.
After Playboi Carti’s performance and Day 1 of Rolling Loud California ended, the worldwide hip-hop music festival representatives were yet to comment on the event.
However, this incident is not new to Rolling Loud; 30-year-old singer Travis Scott was accused of causing a stampede at the Miami festival last year, and he was later sued for his claimed role in the incident.
Once police ordered Travis Scott to stop because the gathering had grown unruly and hazardous, the lawsuit claimed that Scott encouraged the mob by verbally and physically instigating concertgoers.
There have been claims that Scott incited several stampedes while many people were already hurt.
