"They've helped to enhance and put a spotlight on the live performance aspect of hip-hop music in a huge way with their festival, the biggest of its kind, and we are excited to work with them to bring what they've create to our SiriusXM subscribers."
"After our success, earlier this year, broadcasting Rolling Loud in Miami, we are thrilled to join forces on a larger scale and in multiple markets," said Steve Blatter, Senior Vice President and General Manager for Music Programming, SiriusXM. "Rolling Loud's co-founders, Tariq Cherif and Matt Zingler are proven pioneers on the hip-hop festival circuit and have created a unique festival culture for attendees. We look forward to providing our subscribers access to performances from the incredible artist line-ups and overall Rolling Loud experience."

Rolling Loud, called by Billboard "…the be-all of hip-hop festivals," has established itself as the largest hip-hop festival in the world after launching five years ago in Miami by Cherif and Zingler.

Rolling Loud is one of the premier destinations for hip-hop and music fans in the United States and abroad.
