Nestled in a picturesque mountain range approximately 60 miles East of Los Angeles, San Bernardino’s blend of rustic Americana and natural beauty provide the ideal setting for a West Coast hip-hop festival. Rolling Loud California 2021 rose to the occasion, with art installations that evoke SoCal skate culture and the region’s spectacular golden hour sunshine.
The first day of Rolling Loud California was highlighted by standout performances from blog era heroes. Kid Cudi closed out the night with his melancholy bangers, while Wiz Khalifa brought out special guests like Ty Dolla $ign and Problem that prove how well the Pittsburgh native has adapted to the women-weed-and-weather West Coast lifestyle. The day was heavy on local heroes, with Los Angeles melodists Ty Dolla $ign and Blxst turning in standout sets, and Sacramento hard-head Mozzy performing for a rapturous crowd. Check below for photos from these performances and many more, and stay tuned throughout the weekend for performances from J. Cole, Future, and more, plus special guests and more surprise.
