Rolling Loud removed three New York Drill rappers from their lineup at the request of the New York Police Department.
The New York Times reports that the NYPD has requested the removal of Bronx rappers ShaEk, RonSuno and 22Gz, representatives for the rappers told the publication.
Withdrawals come just one day before the weekend festival kicks off at Citi Field in Queens.
The New York City Police Department believes that if these individuals are allowed to act, there will be an increased risk of violence, the request reads.

Earlier this year, Mayor Eric Adams suggested that social media platforms ban Drill’s music.
I had no idea what drill rap was, but I called my son and he sent me some videos, and it’s alarming. We’re going to get the social media companies together and sit down with them and tell them they have a corporate and civic responsibility.
Roomies, what do you think of this?
