Los Angeles authorities are opening an official investigation concerning the attack and subsequent death of 23-year-old man, Kalvin Sanchez during Rolling Loud festival. The hip-hop festival took place at Exposition Park December 14-15.

Sanchez was assaulted at the festival itself on December 14th. He was rushed to the hospital upon enduring serious head injuries. He died four days later from a brain hemorrhage and blunt force head trauma, as determined by the autopsy.

Cell phone footage of several fights found their way to social media. However, the specifics of the assault have not been determined yet. The coroner’s office has deemed the death a homicide.

Sanchez left behind two children—a 3-year-old daughter and 2 month-old son. His family has started a GoFundMe campaign to cover funeral costs and other extenuating expenses.

“We extend our deepest condolences to the family and friends of Kalvin, who passed away last week,” said a representative for Rolling Loud in response to the news. “Our fans are part of our extended family and their health and safety is our number one priority. The incident is under active investigation by both LAPD and CHP and, as such, we are unable to comment further.”

Kid Cudi says new music, tour coming in 2020Kids See Ghosts Kid Cudi 5a006bbe B80d 43cc 90ce 72958a243144

With performances at 2019’s Coachella Music & Arts Festival under his belt alongside his appearance at Miami’s recently concluded Rolling Loud, it’s clear that Kid Cudi has been effortlessly working his way through the festival circuit of late. And as per the “Pursuit Of Happiness” producer himself, Kid Cudi fans can expect these bookings to prelude some fresh new material. The rapper announced that new music would be on the way “next year,” as Cudi “work[s] the rest of this year,” presumably on the unheard productions to come.

Kid Cudi noted that he’s “in no rush to do anything right now,” but is nevertheless putting musical plans in motion, all of which will unfold in 2020. For the remainder of 2019, Cudi will continue to stop by festivals, but will save touring for 2020, when the artist plans to launch a fully fledged tour in support of the music slated to concurrently gain a release. While Cudi knows that his listeners are clamoring for a tour, he reassured his followers that he’s not only keeping busy, but has already begun “the next stage” of his presently developing sonic efforts.
