Fresh out of rehab, Kid Cudi made his triumphant return to the stage at the inaugural ComplexCon in Long Beach, Calif. on Saturday (Nov. 5), and he brought along some famous friends.
Joined by Travis Scott, the two performed their Birds in the Trap Sing McKnight collaboration “Through the Late Night,” an appropriate title for the evening’s most-anticipated set. Elsewhere, Pharrell joined the Man on the Moon for “Surfin’,” while King Chip came through for “Just What I Am.”
“I love you motherfuckers,” he told the crowd, who erupted in cheers.
It’s been an eventful few months for Cudi. In September, the Cleveland rapper delayed his album Passion, Pain, & Demon Slayin’ before checking into rehab for depression and suicidal urges. Since then, his beefs with Drake and Lupe Fiasco have intensified.
Last night’s ComplexCon set could be a sign that PP&DS is set to be released soon, but that remains unclear. So far, music videos for “Surfin'” and “Frequency” have been unleashed, but no official release date has been announced.
“The album is still on the way. Promise,” he told fans last month. “I wanted to square away all the business before I got here so I could focus on my recovery.”
