Unfortunately Roddy Ricch is no longer performing today.— The Governors Ball (@GovBallNYC) June 11, 2022
The Governor’s Ball had some difficult occurrences this weekend. After Migos cancelled earlier last week, rapper Lil Wayne signed on to fulfill their headlining position — but hours before Wayne’s Friday night set, he also pulled out due to a “flight problem.”
Rapper A$AP Ferg then stepped in for Lil Wayne’s slot. It is unclear as of yet on who, if anyone, will be able to replace Ricch.
