Local drill rappers 22Gz, Sha EK, and Ron Suno were supposed to play Rolling Loud this weekend in Queens.
But they won't be.
They have all been removed from the festival at the request of the NYPD.
22GZ has an extensive criminal record. Ron Suno doesn't but got into a fight at last year's Rolling Loud. It's unclear what the cops have against Sha EK.
“Sha Ek is disappointed in the NYPD’s decision," read a statement from his reps. "He hasn’t been charged with anything to justify it. The police try to associate what he’s doing with violence and negativity. They don’t respect that he’s an artist and entertainer trying to better himself and feed his family at 19 years old. Sha Ek has performed all over the Northeast this year. The crowds at his concerts are full of kids dancing and having fun. He’s excited to keep growing his touring business and proving the police wrong.”
Suno's manager also weighed in on the ban.
“How can a person who has no criminal record and no gang ties—the kid never even made a diss record—be denied to perform in his hometown after all his hard work?” Diamond Brown said.
So far no word from the 22GZ camp. But we assume he's blaming his opp Fivio Foreign and Fivio's cop manager for this ...
