 Rolling loud News Full Article 

 When I arrived at Rolling Loud Festival at Citi Field in Queens, I was skeptical. Music festivals are almost never what they advertise. It’s always too crowded, too expensive, and too overstimulating. Even so, the lineup for this year’s event wasn’t half-bad. 42 Dugg, Lil Uzi Vert, Lil Durk, and Moneybagg Yo are all artists I have paid to see live on my own dime, so even if festival performances typically pale in comparison to conventional shows, the math would surely work out. And yet, even with my expectations sufficiently subdued, the first night of Rolling Loud Festival in New York was a worse experience than I could have imagined. For one, there was an insultingly high number of police officers present. There were so many boys in blue that the festival grounds looked like the opening scene of a dystopian film about a future New York. And the excessive police presence isn’t even subtle in its racial anxiety. Just a few weeks ago, another festival, Governor’s Ball, took place in the exact same location with a markedly smaller police footprint. As a rap fan, it’s nothing short of a slap in the face to have the genre of music you enjoy be so blatantly criminalized.
