Organizers for Rolling Loud New York have managed to add another performer to the star-studded lineup. On Monday, they announced that Playboi Carti will perform at the festival, set to go down next month.

“PLEASE WELCOME, PLAYBOI CARTI!” they wrote next to an updated photo of the flyer. 

Rolling Loud New York will take place September 23-25 at Citi Field in Queens and will include performances from headliners Nicki MinajA$AP Rocky and Future, as well as a slew of other artists. With a lineup of over 100 stars, why add Playboi Carti?

Well, organizers say they’ve “believed in Carti ever since 2015” — the year he dropped Soundcloud singles “Broke Boi” and “Fetti” featuring Da$h and Maxo Kream.

“Carti’s redefining what it means to be a hip-hop artist, so it’s only right for him to play a big part in our latest festival in hip-hop’s hometown,” they told TMZ. “We can’t wait to see what this future headliner has planned for the New York crowd.”
