Over the weekend, Kid Cudi appeared at ComplexCon, the first culture festival from the website Complex, where he delivered a triumphant return to the stage. It marked his first formal public appearance and performance since entering rehab for depression last month.
Cudi performed a medley of some of his biggest hits, including songs like “Pursuit of Happiness,” “Erase Me” and “Mr. Rager”. He was also supported by both Pharrell Williams and Travis Scott.
Scott is one of the many artists who has sided with Kid Cudi in his ongoing feud with Drake, which has reignited in recent weeks thanks to an overt diss by the 6 God in his new single “Two Birds, One Stone”. Drake lambasted Cudi for his recent stint in rehab, which is questionable to say the least. Scott was recently quoted in Paper Mag for saying that he strives to be like the rapper, while Cudi has meanwhile charged Drake to “say it to my face,” among other more colorful language.
Watch footage from the concert below, and stay tuned for further release information on Kid Cudi’s upcoming album Passion, Pain & Demon Slayin’.
