A$AP Rocky was the headliner as Rolling Loud hit New York City on Saturday, September 24. The performance included him running through hits including "Lord Pretty Flacko Jodye 2" as well as bringing out Memphis rapper GloRilla to perform her hit "FNF," yet Rocky was in an apologetic mood after the set ended and issued a statement addressing what he saw as shortfalls in the performance

“I am so hurt right now!," Rocky wrote. "Last night was supposed to be a turning point in my live shows from the old to new! I will take full responsibility for the circumstances of what led to last nights show being everything it was and everything it wasn’t.”

“I also want to acknowledge that even tho I prepared the best show for my fans, detail for detail , over the course of MONTHS…” he added. “I was unfortunately not able to bring my vision to fruition and Im hurt about that and I want to apologize to all of my fans and continued supporters, and thank y’all for showing up for me regardless!!”
